How would I be able to aquire a pair of those green grips? Please pm me the details.

These next three are Red Morrell. This stuff is exceedingly hard to work and obtain. All three of these are going to one customer:

Ordered these a few weeks ago from Pistol Accents and got them in Friday. Ive never had carbon fiber grips and thought the color combination on these would be good for this pistol. I was surprised to find that these are solid black, but the "grain" in the carbon fiber makes them look silver depending on the light reflected off of them. Very pleased with these. Great texture and grip as well. Grips by Carbon Creations

Anyone tried making some grips from the Lenga tree? Just asking. Would be kind of cool to have some grips from a tree with the same name as you.

A few pair I kicked out this week; inspired by my first incoming 1911 and the uber artists out there making the good stuff.

L-R black palm, spalted curly maple, spalted persimmon, curly maple


I've got 4 or 5 sets still in the works. Pulled all the wood out of my scrap log pile that I collected last year and spalted.

I am working on bloodstone petrified wood, REAL malachite, multiple kinds of jade, chrysanthemum stone and other weird materials. My new heavy grit diamond grinding wheel is making production much faster & easier.
