No luck with ivory micarta

Since I could not find a match for my agrussell sting in ivory I had to go another direction.
Purchased some government model thin gray and black zebra g10 grips and fitted to the lil combatmaster.



Wasn't exactly what I was looking for but it will have to do for now.

Love these. Did you make your own block of material, or did you buy it?

If you made it, would you mind sharing how? (Perhaps in another thread, or via pm?)

^ Thanks Sebspeed, it's an interesting material to work with. The resin takes an exceptionally high polish if you've got the patience for it.
I've been doing some inlay work with the resin, I'll try to get some pics up soon. You can get some really cool looks with it. So far that's the extent of my work with it.
The great thing about these blocks is that they are artworks in themselves. You're pretty much guaranteed unique pattern and color grips, and it's pretty tough material.
There are several vendors and the list is growing. I bought this lot from Mysticwoods...it's a sideline business for them and they're great to make special orders. I don't have their website info but I'll pm an email address. Their main storefront is on ebay under that name.
Another source is californiafruitwoods.com. They make these blocks for "box mods" which I guess are cases for e-cigarette things. A horrible waste or resources which could be better used as 1911 grips, IMHO. Competition is pretty fierce, having to beat back pen turners, bottle-stopper makers and tap handle makers. You can also google "hybrid stabilized wood" and probably find more.

I really like those! I was stationed in AZ for a number of years, I have a few animal sculptures made of Ironwood. I'll probably be contacting you pretty soon.

^Thanks, I'll be glad to work with you. I've got a few sets of Desert Ironwood scales that aren't spoken for yet...I can let you choose from those or I can shop for the right set. When you're ready, just drop me a PM or email through the website at your convenience.
