    Hi Bud

    Cocobolo is a beautiful wood. It has so much natural oil in it that it's basically almost waterproof.
    I get a toxic allergic reaction when working with it.
    The wood dust is deadly...but the finished product is amazing.
    My favorite grip wood is SNAKEWOOD from Surinam but, it's more brittle than Cocobolo.

    They are nice QK, do you work with this wood often? I don't know what my grips are but they take on a high sheen especially with oil.

    Yours might already be Cocobolo
    $20.00 is a great price for any exotic wood checkered grips.

    If you want a pair of cocobola grips for a 1911, you might want to check "Exotic Grips by Esmeralda" . Her work is great and you can actually see the exact grips you are ordering. With a wood like this, that is important. I have never bought from her but if I ever see the exact slabs I want, I wouldn't hesitate to buy them....
