    Texas Ebony Grips!

    Here is another set of grips I made from Texas Ebony. Darn things are about as hard to photograph as they are to make. The right side grip had a knot running through it that required some clear filler material before I could begin finishing them. You can't really see or feel the repair because it's smooth to the touch and flush with the surface of the grip. I wasn't sure how they'd turn out, but here are the results.

    They're very dark as you can see and would probably be better suited to a stainless or duo-tone setup. If you like something different...well here you go!

    For your viewing pleasure!
    I'll give you to the count of three to get off my property...one, two, BANG!

    Very nice, I think they look good on blued too, but I have always liked darker firearms.

    Thats a nice looking set of grips. I think the knot adds character.

    Very nice indeed!
    A Leejack original: Socialism is the layover on the flight from freedom to communism. Democratic socialism (think Bernie & Ocasio-Cortez) is disguising that pig with lipstick to sell the tickets. I hope all those who subscribe to this democratic socialism reap the bennies that they sowed, just leave me and mine alone!.......

    I appreciate the compliments MilProGuy! Trust me, it took a lot of practice to get to this point.
    Stay tuned, I've got some real beauties coming out in a few weeks.

    What did you use as a filler for the knot hole?
