Well, Justherenow, on behalf of all of us 1911 freaks, let me welcome you to the club! I own many weapons, but it seems my top 10 are all 1911's. They are just special in the world of pistols. Hope you enjoy yours as we do ours!
Now, on to grips.......
Buffalo horn finished in satin. These are shown on a Dan Wesson CCO. I really like this material - it's hard, but not too brittle, and has some great subtle markings and shadows down inside the material itself. You never know what you're going to have until you get it shaped to see it. Beautiful and tough stuff.
Enjoy the pics,
Here's African Blackwood. Almost like Gabon Ebony, except this wood also has graining patterns in it as well. The pics are much lighter than the wood is in hand. I'm no picture taker unfortunately. Actually the grips are almost black. Either way, it's a beautiful and hard wood. The graining can run from mild to jagged and wild.
Here's a set of Afzelia Xylay with what is called a "waterfall figure". I bet you can figure out why. Very cool stuff.
Enjoy the beauty!
Sorry all. Busy, busy, busy with special orders.
How about a very cool set showing off some primo Walnut? I love it when the walnut gets into all the radical movement and the different colors. This set came from a burl although it doesn't have any burl eyes or clusters. Sure is pretty stuff!
Those are similar in shape to the stock grips on my Llama, Commander size. Not exactly identical but close enough that I'd bet they are for a Llama or Firestorm of some flavor.
I wish I was more of a photographer and could capture the extreme amount and depth of figure in this set of Koa grips, but I guess I was born without the photography gene. You can see some of it, but the pictures don't do it justice. The wood is Koa from Hawaii, and has been used there for centuries for literally everything from canoes, to war clubs to jewelry. It's also highly prized for use in high end ukelelis (sp?), and with good reason, it's beautiful stuff!
Enjoy the pics,
How about some Honduran Rosewood burl? This stuff is just outstanding! The intricate graining, depth and rich colors just make me stare. I'm SO glad that I finally found a block. Now I just have to play the waiting game while it dries enough to use the rest of it. Gorgeous stuff is it not?
You are perpetually outdoing yourself Sarge.
Thanks QKS, but you know the real deal.... I'm just delving into the beauty that nature offers us and finding new and cool stuff. It's very gratifying to make a cut into a block and see this kind of special greatness. I get a rush every time I do it. I have the best job in the world my friend!
