Agreed

and

the problem with Esmeralda is--

trying to pick out which gorgeous grips to get :-/

Her "Thor's Hammer" design in Ivory Wood is becoming almost irresistible to me.

Another OGAD victim about to succumb to the lure of Esmeralda.

† †Richard, I wish I could post a picture. But, along with being a complete computer illiterate, I don't even own a digital camera. I've seen pictures that you posted of your 1911, the grips look great. I don't have a gun with sambar grips, but I do have two Bob Dozier skinning knives with sambar grips. It works great for that. † †Gene
   Richard, it just dawned on me that while my stone age technology level won't allow me to post pictures, I could give you the name and serial# of the grips and you could see them on Esmeralda's web site. They're the 1911 compact, amboyna burl, ser# AB37187. They look even better on the gun. Hope this helps.    Gene

If these are the ones, they are really beautiful! (I don't think you're helping my problem, Gene.  ;) )

      Those are the ones, Richard. Esmeralda has such a marvelous selection. It took me almost a week to decide which pair to get. What I really wanted was one of everything. She really does wonderful work.   Gene

   Tom, you don't think the bar-b-que sauce will stain the grips, do you? ;) ;)      Gene

   Richard, I looked up the "Thor's Hammer" grips that you mentioned and they are gorgeous. I wish I knew more about the wood itself. With the exception of the cocobolo and the amboyna burl, all of the different woods are completely unknown to me. The only reason that I'm familiar with those two is because I have several knives with scales made from cocobolo and amboyna. They both make beautiful knife handles! I'm sure that somewhere on the internet there's a site that explains all about the different woods, the  problem is that while the internet is vast, my knowledge of it is only half vast. So if anyone would like to jump in here and help me out I would really appreciate it.     Thanks,  Gene
