What's new at Sarge's Grips

This is a discussion on What's new at Sarge's Grips within the Related Gear & Equipment forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I think I just named them and didn't tell anyone that didn't ask exactly what they were. My bad. Hopefully this has cleared it up ...

    I think I just named them and didn't tell anyone that didn't ask exactly what they were. My bad. Hopefully this has cleared it up for a few people. There seems to be a gap there that needed to be filled.

    Todays set is one of my personal favorites. I was lucky enough to find a block of maple with this heavy and GORGEOUS spalt pattern. The great thing is, that this wood was still solid as a rock too. I think the spalting in what I got out of that block is some of the most beautiful I have ever seen. This is one of those sets that just makes me stop and stare. I hope you enjoy it as well!

    Here's a set in Bloodwood with some very cool fossilized coral. I don't know how old fossilized coral is, I may have to look that up and see if there is even an answer for that..... I do know that it's beautiful with the white spines cutting through the blue of the surrounding area in the pattern that it does. Very cool stuff! The color combination of the red and the blue is something that I've always liked as well.
    Enjoy!

    Amboyna Burl is a cool wood that can have many different looks and colors. I've seen yellow through orange and on to deep deep red bordering on black. This set is a rich reddish brown color which is beautiful, but the thing that does it for me is the burl pattern in it. Concentrated coverage so tight that it almost looks like slivers stuck together. Very interesting. Hope you enjoy the pics!

    Runnin' late today.....
    Since I'm on a "red" kick of sorts, here's a set of my Ultra Thins in bloodwood. My UT's are just 1/8" thick - they don't get any thinner than that unless you put duct tape on and call it grips.
    Anyway, the grips can be made anywhere from the UT's 1/8" up to and over normal (1/4" ) thickness depending on what you want.
    Besides, red on a black frame is just flat out cool, so enjoy the pics.

    This is a set of EMP grips in Holly.
    Holly is a wood that looks both in graining and color and AWFUL lot like natrual Ivory. It ages and darkens to a yellower color just like Ivory. It's not as tough as the Ivory, but it's only about 25% of the cost of it too.
    Anyway, it's a beautiful wood, especially against a dark frame as you can see.
    Enjoy,

    The Holly does look very much like Elephant ivory.
    The Bloodwood grips are super nice also.

    Folks would be surprised how thin grips, a flat mainspring housing, & a short trigger will allow the 1911 to fit perfectly in even the smallest of human hands.

    This is a set I made for a customer who served with the 3rd ACR and was rightfully proud of his service. Just an example of insetting oversized medallions in the grips.
    Black paper Micarta with 7/8" medallions. You can't really tell from the pics, but the medallions are totally encased and the grip panels smooth, just like a normal grip would be.

    Another set of mammoth tooth grips ordered by a customer who wanted them in Cocobolo. These are freshly finished and the cocobolo will turn a little more red and darker with exposure to the sun.

    I don't remember. I just put them in the mail addressed to "To whom it may concern". You should have them in your hands tomorrow.
    Glad you guys like them!

    This may be the last post for a couple of weeks, I'm not sure. I have some military training in Mississippi that I'm leaving for at O-dark-thirty in the morning, and am not sure on internet access or time to use it while I'm gone.
    Today's wood is BEAUTIFUL! Pommelle Bubinga. Trust me on this - the pictures do not do this wood justice. The depth and figure in this wood are phenominal. It's like a brook babbling over stones and it just makes you stare into it. I've had this wood in the shop for a while now, but the piece wasn't beg enough to use for full sized grips. Now that I have an EMP to fit to, I can use it AND have grips that fit.
    Anyway, I hope you enjoy it! I'll be back with more when I can.
