    Yes, those are actually EMP grips. Ambi cuts can be added at will to just about any set. It's literally a 10 second deal. ;)

    How about some beautiful two tone Amboyna burl? This kind of beauty is found near the outer edge of the burls where the sapwood and the heartwood meet. Usually very limited amount of this type per burl, but when you get lucky and find it large enough to use in grips, the results are nothing short of spectacular!
    Enjoy the pics,

    How about some uber cool spalted Maple? Crosscutting this stuff really let's you get at some great patterns!
    Have a good weekend!

    Hope all had a good weekend!
    To start your week off right, with a little natural beauty, here is some gorgeous spalted Maple burl. Great color and even some fine line spalt running through it, this wood can be very special if caught at the right time!
    Enjoy,
    Sarge

    Teak is known by just about everyone, but hardly anyone knows about Teak BURL. You don't find many of them, but they are uniquely beautiful when you do.
    Here's an example.
    Enjoy,

    Another Australian wood that I've always thought was cool is Fishtail Oak (some call it Leopardwood). A heavy and solid wood that should not be confused with it's close looking cousin, the lightweight Lacewood. Fishtail Oak trees grow outward in rings just like other trees, but what makes them unique is the "wafers" that grow around the tree in the rings. These are the light areas you see in the pictures. These wafers surround the tree in the rings so when the wood is fabricated, you get this very cool revealing of the patterns you see. They can be short lines if you cut across the rings, or bigger shapes if you shape with the rings. Very unique, and pretty cool in my book!
    Enjoy the pics,

    Todays offering is Black Ash Burl with unbelievable coverage. The natural spalt just adds to that. I don't think you could fit another burl eye anywhere on this wood! ;) It's beautiful stuff, but this wood will usually need to be stabilized to make it hard and tough as it's usually quite light when the spalt is present.
    Enjoy the pics!

    Well, that's pretty special looking! They should call it Leopard Wood or something (Ha!).

    Today, I thought we'd go a little different direction. Everyone knows that I love natural wood and all it's beauty and surprises. Sometimes people like a little "enhancement" which is cool too. Today I thought I'd show pics of a recent group order that wanted the COTEP logo put on the grips. COTEP is a group of people that lovbe the Dan Wesson line of pistols and while it started off as kind of a joke, it has grown to 400 members and is starting to see all kinds of aftermarket COTEP items pop up from holsters, to stickers, to shirts, to yes, grips. COTEP stands for Congregation Of The Enlightened Pistolero.
    Anyway, I got the logo to the engraver and he engraved it on the grips. When I went to pick them up I found out that his price to me didn't inlcude the color filling of the logo, so I had to jump into that and get it done with NO prior experience in doing so. Below are pics of the process. It's like everything else, it was a learning experience and while 90% of the grips came out just right, there were a couiple of sets (both Maple) that had some color runn through the grain vertically. Lesson learned. The sets that have followed this order have had my lessons applied to them.
    The pics go in order from applying the color, to removing the masking, on through the finished product. I thought it was interesting, and hopefully you will also.
    Thanks,
    Sarge

    That logo blends very naturally with the Spalt Maple grips! Almost looks like it grew there.

    Those are some nice looking grips! I've never heard of some of the wood. Do you make any for the rounded bobtail on a Kimber Super Carry Pro?
