1911 Ivory Grips for: Republic Forge, Colt, Kimbers, Springfields, Cabot, Ed Brown, Les Baer, Dan Wesson, Night Hawk, Wilson, Republic Arms, STI, etc. and all 1911 clones

2015: Republic Forge.  Click here to arrive at their home page and see some of my grips on their pistols. 

2015: If you would like to learn a little more about me and my partnership with Cabot guns, click here to be transported to my bio on their web site:  Cabotguns.com

2017:  New partnership with Nighthawk Custom Click here to view their New pistols featuring my ivory.  They are:  Turnbull VP1 & Turnbull VP2.  I want to thank my fellow ivory lovers (customers) for sending in the pictures from Nighthawks current magazine Ads featuring their Turnbull VP1 and Turnbull VP2.  Nice eye candy. Down below are pictures and a longer description.  Thanks,  Dan

August 2017:  Wilson Combat.  Details not yet released, but soon...

September 13th 2016:  At this point I would like to also mention that I carry no inventory.  Grips completed go up on my web site or shipped off to manufactures.  I also rarely take custom orders.  Using  past history, 75% of the time the customer is not satisfied with what I make them and that leaves both parties feeling disappointed and that our time was wasted.

HOW IT WORKS:  On the day and time of listing, please click on the email address:   Dansivorygrips@yahoo.com or send an email to this address.  Then within the body of the email tell me the grip number (i.e. GG895, etc), your name, telephone number, and whether the grips will need to be cut for an ambidextrous safety.  Emails will be checked to see who was 1st in requesting a specific set of grips.  Thank You, Dan

 09/27/2017:  Three(3) pair of grips will be listed today at 3:00 central time.  Grips:  GG1015, GG1016, and GG1017

GG1017 - Classic Alaskan Blue & Carmel Mammoth ivory 1911 grips

ARTIST: Dan Chinnockgg1017

IVORY: Alaska

PISTOL TYPES: Republic Forge, Colts, Kimbers, Springfields, Ed Brown, Les Baer, Cabot, Dan Wesson, Wilson Combat, STI, etc. and all 1911 clones Note: Some Cabot guns require special templates to make grips. They have sent me templates for all of their models.

MODIFICATIONS: Upon request, can be cut for an ambidextrous safety.

COMMENTS:  Good example of the dark ivory that typically comes out of Alaska.  These have a good deep water blue & will look good on a stainless or black pistol.  A high gloss gives them a great mint condition look.  Click on the picture to see them on my pistols!

If you want to maintain that high gloss, mint condition look, yourself just ask me to include a polishing file for $3.00 (see Polishing file in the main menu to see how it works!)

PRICE:  sold

MODIFICATIONS: Upon request, can be cut for an ambidextrous safety.

COMMENTS: I consider these turned out to be one of the most "pure" sets of Mammoth ivory I have built.  A nice pure white ivory as the backdrop and then a cool golden bronze splash of color on the surface.  They have a great glossy look with the feel of warm butter at the range.      Click on the picture to see them on 1 of my pistols!

MODIFICATIONS: Upon request, can be cut for an ambidextrous safety.

COMMENTS:  A rich looking set with nice Denim blues and heavy Carmel / bronze colors gives these a great set for virtually all black, blue, and stainless pistols.  Has a very ancient look, but with its high polish & smooth texture it also has that brand new mint condition look.  The color clarity also gives them a 3-dimensional look when viewed up close.  Just a very cool looking set of grips.  Click on the picture to see them on 1 of my pistols!

GG1012 - Blue Veined on Warm Patina Mammoth Ivory 1911 Gripsgg1012

ARTIST: Dan Chinnock

IVORY: Siberia

PISTOL TYPES: Republic Forge, Colts, Kimbers, Springfields, Les Baer, Dan Wesson, Wilson Combat, STI, etc. and all 1911 clones Note:

MODIFICATIONS: Already cut for an ambidextrous safety.

COMMENTS:  Another cool set of nice warm ivory that has blue bark lines.  Will look exceptional on any color pistol.  Just enough turquoise blue veining to give "pop" to an otherwise traditional looking pair of Mammoth ivory grips.  This blue veining process takes thousands of years and yet the grips are totally smooth with a high gloss polish.  Great book matching took some effort to achieve, but I think the results were well worth it.  Click on the picture to see them on one of my pistols.  These will be an extremely durable set & perfect for an "Every Day Carry"

GG1010 -Light green on Patina Mammoth Ivory 1911 Grips

ARTIST: Dan Chinnockgg1010

IVORY: Siberia

PISTOL TYPES:  Republic Forge, Nighthawk Custom, Colts, Kimbers, Springfields, Ed Brown, Les Baer, Cabot, Dan Wesson, Wilson Combat, STI, etc. and all 1911 clones

MODIFICATIONS: Upon request, can be cut for an ambidextrous safety, bob tail (Ed Brown) or Kimber's Super Carry Pro. Thumb groove for better access to magazine release.

COMMENTS: Just a nice clean set of Mammoth ivory with some light greens at the top and bottom of each panel.   These are a durable set that will upgrade the look of any 1911 and certainly add value since there is nice color in them. These have the square corner often desired by magwell owners, but I can put the traditional mainspring housing bolt notch in if desired. These took a very high polish that will surely grab attention out on the range or in your holster. Don't forget to click on the picture to see how they look on 1 of my pistols.  Great bark ticking that is another sign of true Mammoth ivory.

Check my new menu item "Ivory File". For $3 dollars, this file will keep that gloss and mint condition look on these grips. I even have a video demo on how to use it. So please check it out and tell me what you think. If you already own some ivory grips, this file will increase the value of that investment. A high gloss set of ivory grips often sells for $50 to $100 more than a flat/dull set of grips.

PRICE: sold!

Thanks STI !

PISTOL TYPES:  Republic Forge, Nighthawk Custom, Colts, Kimbers, Springfields, Ed Brown, Les Baer, Cabot, Dan Wesson, Wilson Combat, STI, etc. and all 1911 clones

MODIFICATIONS: Can be cut for an ambidextrous safety.

COMMENTS:  A blast of ocean blues that will make a great visual impact on an any stainless or dark pistol.  After 9 years, and over 1000 grips built, I still get caught off guard when I start to sand the brown crust off and these types of colors are revealed.  Then to be able to make a book matched set is even more rewarding.  I never get tired of looking at Mammoth ivory in its finest.  Seeing them first hand you will say "wow!".  Don't forget to click on the picture to see how they look on one of my pistols.  Even the back sides are a perfect clean patina ivory (see larger picture)  Truly   investment grade.  Did I mention that they are flawless?

MODIFICATIONS: Can be cut for an ambidextrous safety, beveled & MSH pin notched, bobtailed, etc...

COMMENTS:  Heavy black and white ivory together on a single pair of grips makes these unique and a great example of the kind of contrast achievable in Mammoth ivory.  Will be very durable for the range or as a carry.  Don't forget to click on the picture to see them on one of my pistols.    If you want to maintain that high gloss, mint condition look, yourself just ask me to include a polishing file for $3.00 (see Polishing file in the main menu to see how it works!)

GG1007 - Intense Blue & Natural Mammoth Tooth 1911 grips

ARTIST: Dan Chinnockgg1007

Mammoth found in: Siberia - Russia

PISTOL TYPES: Republic Forge, Colts, Kimbers, Springfields, Ed Brown, Les Baer, Cabot, Dan Wesson, Wilson Combat, STI, etc. and all 1911 clones Note: Some Cabot guns require special templates to make grips.

MODIFICATIONS: Setup is in place for an ambidextrous safety.

COMMENTS:  Flawless set of blue veined Mammoth Tooth, contrasted and balanced by light tans, creates a striking set of grips.  Just a natural for a barbeque gun.  Remember to click on the picture to see how they look on my Ed Brown Special Forces.  The black bezel frames out the Tooth nicely and gives it great protection at the borders and bushings.  Will have a dramatic effect on black pistols.  While perfectly smooth, the rich patterns give it a one-of-a-kind look that can only be achieved by Mother Nature and the ancient Wooly Mammoths. 

Don't forget to click on the picture to see a larger view on how they look on my Ed Brown Special Forces. 

Wooly Mammoths had larger molars to help digest about 200 pounds of vegetation each day. The dark areas were softer and the light areas were harder. This created an uneven surface as they wore down and much like a cheese grater they made the molars more efficient. They fell out and were replaced with new teeth about every three years. Mammoth tooth grips have been made before, but I avoided them due to their hard brittle tendencies. This has now been resolved by inlaying the Mammoth tooth into tactical G10 material. They are now light weight, durable, and beautiful. Even more, these grips will over a few years begin to wear to your unique hand print. It will take a while, but it is cool to think about how your grips will form to your unique hand shape.

PRICE: sold!

Thanks Matt

GG1006 - Classic Bark Pattern Mammoth ivory 1911 gripsgg1006

ARTIST: Dan Chinnock

IVORY: Siberia

PISTOL TYPES: Republic Forge, Colts, Kimbers, Springfields, Ed Brown, Les Baer, Cabot, Dan Wesson, Wilson Combat, STI, etc. and all 1911 clones Note: Some Cabot guns require special templates to make grips. They have sent me templates for all of their models.

MODIFICATIONS: Upon request, can be cut for an ambidextrous safety. Thumb groove for speed access to magazine release, Bobtailed, beveled & notched for MSH pin.

COMMENTS: These are a great example of  Siberian Mammoth ivory.  The brown crackle on top of white ivory gives them an ancient look of old tree bark (hence the phrase "Mammoth Bark".)  However, they are totally smooth, have a high gloss, and feel like warm butter in your hands.  This effect and appearance is why Mammoth ivory is so sought after.  Nothing else comes close.  These will be a very durable set of grips and so don't be shy putting them on your every day carry or every trip at the shooting range.  Don't forget to click on the picture to see them on one of my pistols.  These types of ivory grips tend to hold their value very well.  Especially with their high degree of bookmatching.

If you want to maintain that high gloss, mint condition look, yourself just ask me to include a polishing file for $3.00 (see Polishing file in the main menu to see how it works!)

GG1005 - Classic Alaskan Carmel Mammoth ivory 1911 gripsgg1005

IVORY: Alaska

PISTOL TYPES: Republic Forge, Colts, Kimbers, Springfields, Ed Brown, Les Baer, Cabot, Dan Wesson, Wilson Combat, STI, etc. and all 1911 clones Note: Some Cabot guns require special templates to make grips. They have sent me templates for all of their models.

MODIFICATIONS: Have been cut for an ambidextrous safety.

COMMENTS:  Nice solid Mammoth that has a heavy patina throughout the ivory with black, browns, and hints of blue.  A high gloss gives them a great mint condition look and will be a great set for a every day carry black pistol.  Alaskan ivory tends to be darker over Siberian and these are a great example.

If you want to maintain that high gloss, mint condition look, yourself just ask me to include a polishing file for $3.00 (see Polishing file in the main menu to see how it works!)

GG1004 - Intense Blue on Carmel Ivory, Mammoth Ivory 1911 Grips

ARTIST: Dan Chinnockgg1004

IVORY: Siberia

PISTOL TYPES: Republic Forge, Colts, Kimbers, Springfields, Ed Brown, Les Baer, Cabot, Dan Wesson, Nighthawk, Wilson Combat, STI, etc. and all 1911 clones

MODIFICATIONS: Setup in place for ambidextrous safety.  Can be: bob tailed (Ed Brown) or Kimber's Super Carry Pro rounded butt

COMMENTS: Dead on perfect book matching of intense blues dancing off the heals and dripping down from the tips.  For a better pick up the blues, be sure to click on the picture to see them on one of my pistols.  Should work well for any color pistol, but will be a great accent to a case color or blued pistol.  They have an almost 3-dimensional look when viewed up close that only can be achieved by Mother Nature, iron in the soil, and a few thousand years to replace the calcium within the ivory.  Just a classy looking pair of ivory grips with that warm buttery feel you only get with real ivory.

If you want to maintain that high gloss, mint condition look yourself, just ask me to include a polishing file for $3.00 (see Polishing file in the main menu to see how it works!) A high gloss set of ivory grips often sells for $50 to $100 more than a flat/dull set of grips.

GG1002 - Blue Crust Mammoth ivory 1911 grips

ARTIST: Dan Chinnockgg1002

IVORY: Siberia - Russia

PISTOL TYPES: Republic Forge, Colts, Kimbers, Springfields, Les Baer, Dan Wesson, Wilson Combat, STI, etc. and all 1911 clones Note:

MODIFICATIONS: Have been cut for an ambidextrous safety

COMMENTS:  In some of your feedback there has been a desire to have a more textured tactical feel in the grips.  So in a first, I left some of the original brown crust & grooving that Mother Nature made during the thousands of years in was buried in the soil.  A great tactical feel, that will let you know your hands are in the correct position without visually looking at your hands.  A set of grips meant for some serious shooting at the range that just might become your favorite set.

Just a really unique one-of-a-kind set of Mammoth.  Click on the picture to see them on my Ed Brown Special Forces.  If you want to maintain that mint condition look yourself, just ask me to include a polishing file for $3.00 (see Polishing file in the main menu to see how it works!)

AKGRIP 4 

Case Colored Damascus Knife with Matching White Mammoth ivory  1911 grips.akgrip4

PISTOL TYPES: Republic Forge, Colts, Kimbers, Springfields, Ed Brown, Les Baer, Cabot, Dan Wesson, Wilson Combat, STI, etc. and all 1911 clones Note: Some Cabot guns require special templates to make grips. They have sent me templates for all of their models.

MODIFICATIONS: Upon request, can be cut for an ambidextrous safety

COMMENTS: Crisp snow white ivory on both the knife and the grips make this setup special.  Here is another opportunity to own a matching set of ivory grips and "your emergency backup" knife that has matching ivory and a Case Colored Damascus blade that is razor sharp and ready to go to work if needed.  Beautiful copper, bronze, and blue frame colors in the knife gives it a very unique look and practical durability.  Really a cool setup.  Click on the picture to see other views of the knife and grips.  Blade is 4 inches long overall length is 8 1/2 inches, scales are book matched and silver pinned.  Grips and knife will ship immediately to their new home.

GG996 - Case Colored Steel 1911 grips w/ deep Bronze and Blues

IVORY: N/A (Made in America!)gg996

PISTOL TYPES: Republic Forge, Colts, Kimbers, Springfields, Ed Brown, Les Baer, Cabot, Dan Wesson, Wilson Combat, STI, etc. and all 1911 clones Note: Some Cabot guns require special templates to make grips. They have sent me templates for all of their models.

MODIFICATIONS: Ambidextrous setup is already in place.

COMMENTS: That "Case Color" (hardened) look has been cool for over a 100 years.  Originally on Single Action Army pistols, the migration to 1911's was inevitable.  Republic Forge has some beautiful examples out on their Facebook page and on their web site.  We then started building case colored knives with matching ivory grips.  Now comes the next iteration!  Case Color Hardened grips.  Weighing just 5.7 Oz, they work well on any pistol, but have a nice pop on Stainless.  Click on the picture to see them on my Ed Brown.  The 20 curved grooves gives them a confident feel in the hand.  They are guaranteed not to fade or wear down or they will be reworked or replaced for life.  I new protection seal, previously only found on our knives, is invisible to the naked eye, but creates an extremely durable seal against UV light or the friction of the shooters hand.  If you have a blued pistol, it is begging to have a pair of these shoes.  Listen to your pistol, it knows best.

PRICE: sold!

GG1000 - Officer/Compact size:  Deep Alaskan Blue Mammoth ivory 1911 grips

ARTIST: Dan Chinnockgg1000

IVORY: Alaska Inupiaq tribe

PISTOL TYPES:  Republic Forge, Colts, Kimbers, Springfields, Ed Brown, Les Baer, Cabot, Dan Wesson, Wilson Combat, STI, etc. and all 1911 clones

MODIFICATIONS: Upon request, can be cut for an ambidextrous safety, bob tail (Ed Brown) or Kimber's Super Carry Pro. Thumb groove for better access to magazine release.

COMMENTS:  Remember these are Compact size grips.  This ivory is unique in that it was found by Native Alaskans.  Some live a very simple life and finding ivory, even in small amounts, provides significant income for their yearly living expenses.  Alaskan ivory is often darker in the base color, but often yields unique "blues" in that the climate is so different (wet and warm) when compared to Siberia Russia.  So it goes without saying that these are very unique compared to the blues I offer in Siberian ivory.  Nice warm set with deep sapphire blue veining makes them a rare.  Colors like these seem to match well with a conceal carry pistol.  Nothing too flashy to catch someone's eye while holstered. 

These have the square corner often desired by magwell owners, but I can put a bevel on the heal for even a softer feel.  Don't forget to click on the picture to see how they look on 1 of my pistols.  Check my new menu item "Ivory File". For $3 dollars, this file will keep that gloss and mint condition look on these grips. I even have a video demo on how to use it. So please check it out and tell me what you think. If you already own some ivory grips, this file will increase the value of that investment. A high gloss set of ivory grips often sells for $50 to $100 more than a flat/dull set of grips.

GG999 - Black bark lines on Warm Patina Mammoth ivory 1911 grips

ARTIST: Dan Chinnockgg999

IVORY: Siberia - Russia

PISTOL TYPES: Republic Forge, Colts, Kimbers, Springfields, Les Baer, Dan Wesson, Wilson Combat, STI, etc. and all 1911 clones Note:

MODIFICATIONS: Can be cut for a ambidextrous safety, MSH pin notch, beveled heal, thumb groove for speed access to magazine release.

COMMENTS:  I created good book matching by having equal amounts of black crackle lines and the result is good "movement and flow" to the overall look when they are on a pistol.  Click on the picture to see them on my Ed Brown Special Forces.  These are totally smooth and up close an almost 3-dimensional look.  These will be extremely durable and will likely outlast your pistol.  Wilson Combat would put them into their "Bullet Proof" category of pistol options.  They also have that warm buttery feel you only get with real ivory. 

If you want to maintain that high gloss, mint condition look, yourself just ask me to include a polishing file for $3.00 (see Polishing file in the main menu to see how it works!)

GG998 - Black ticking on highly white Mammoth Ivory 1911 Grips

ARTIST: Dan Chinnockgg998

IVORY: Siberia

PISTOL TYPES:  Republic Forge, Colts, Kimbers, Springfields, Ed Brown, Les Baer, Cabot, Dan Wesson, Wilson Combat, STI, etc. and all 1911 clones

MODIFICATIONS: Upon request, can be cut for an ambidextrous safety, heal beveled, cut for Main Spring Housing Pin

COMMENTS:  These are a bright white ivory even above Elephant ivory.  The light crackle lines give the grips great depth of color and look almost 3 dimensional when viewed up close.  They will look great on any color pistol and are an exceptional alternative to Elephant ivory.  I had not seen this level of white in years, but a recent tusk section revealed a few of these "white" Mammoth grips and so if you love that high contrast between the grips and a black or blue pistol, these would be a great choice.

PRICE:   sold

Thanks Keith!

GG997 - One of kind Tri-color Brain Coral 1911 grips

ARTIST: Dan Chinnockgg997

IVORY: Atlantic Ocean Floor

PISTOL TYPES: Republic Forge, Colts, Kimbers, Springfields, Les Baer, Dan Wesson, Wilson Combat, STI, etc. and all 1911 clones Note:

MODIFICATIONS: N/A

COMMENTS:  I built these grips over a year ago and never could come up with another set with these great colors and so these are coming out of my collection as a one of a kind only.  The process to make them was so time consuming I am afraid that even if I found more coral like this I would not have the patience to attempt again.  Golden anodized titanium fused to the back make these super hard and super durable.  Just a really cool looking set.  Click on the picture to see how they look on one of my pistols. 

PRICE:  sold

GG995 - Carmel with touches of blue Mammoth ivory 1911 grips

ARTIST: Dan Chinnockgg995

IVORY: Siberia - Russia

PISTOL TYPES: Republic Forge, Colts, Kimbers, Springfields, Les Baer, Dan Wesson, Wilson Combat, STI, etc. and all 1911 clones Note:

MODIFICATIONS: Upon request, can be cut for an ambidextrous safety, heal beveled, cut for Main Spring Housing Pin

COMMENTS:  These have a bark pattern for those who lean towards the traditional look of wood or stag grips.  A nice bronze look, with hints of blue, and that warm buttery feel you only find with real ivory.  I then pulled out the lighter ivory sitting below the surface, and achieved some nice "pop" by having it appear on the outer edges.  These will be extremely durable and sure to add life to any black or bronze pistol.  Excellent choice for your 1st pair of Mammoth ivory grips that will have you staring at them for hours.  Amazing to have some thing be so new looking and knowing it came from something that is over 10,000 years old.

Click on the picture to see them on one of my pistols.  If you want to maintain that high gloss, mint condition look, yourself just ask me to include a polishing file for $3.00 (see Polishing file in the main menu to see how it works!)

MODIFICATIONS: Setup is in place for an ambidextrous safety.

COMMENTS:  This burnt red tooth has these looking great on both black and stainless pistols, and just a natural for a barbeque gun.  Remember to click on the picture to see how they look on my different pistols.  The silver bezel further enhances the dramatic effect on black pistols.  While perfectly smooth, the rich patterns give it a one-of-a-kind look that can only be achieved by Mother Nature and the ancient Wooly Mammoths.

MODIFICATIONS: Have been cut for an ambidextrous safety.

COMMENTS:  Nice solid Mammoth that has a heavy patina throughout the ivory with black ticks that give these a traditional look.  A high gloss gives them a great mint condition look and will be a great set for a every day carry black pistol.  Flawless in every way, these will likely out last your pistol and make a nice investment as Mammoth ivory becomes more and more scarce.

COMMENTS:  Remember these are Compact size grips.  Pure black and white ivory together on a single pair of grips makes these super rare and the ultimate eye catcher when it is time to show off your conceal carry pistol.  Will work well for all color pistols.  You are not likely to see another pair like these for a long long time.  Don't forget to click on the picture to see them on my Kimber compact 1911.

ARTIST: Dan Chinnockgg981

IVORY: Siberia - Russia

PISTOL TYPES: Colt, All Kimbers, Springfields, Ed Brown, Les Baer, Uselton, Volkmann, Dan Wesson, Wilson, STI, etc. and all 1911 clones

MODIFICATIONS: Upon request, can be cut for an ambidextrous safety or bob tail (Ed Brown).

COMMENTS:  One of the most dramatic effects Mother Nature can perform on Mammoth ivory.  Totally smooth, highly polished, white ivory, and a ice crackle pattern appearing just below the surface.  I kept these in my own collection for a long while because they are so cool to look at.  I love the warm buttery feel & the way it dresses out my Ed Brown.  Dead spot on of what takes 10,000+ years to create by Mother Nature and an example of what man cannot do.  An extremely durable set of grips that just might outlast your pistol!

Clicking on the above picture will show a larger picture of these grips. If you want to maintain that high gloss, mint condition look, yourself just ask me to include a polishing file for $3.00 (see Polishing file in the main menu to see how it works!)

GG976 - Rare Midnight Blue Black Mammoth ivory 1911 grips

ARTIST: Dan Chinnockgg976

IVORY: Siberia - Russia

PISTOL TYPES: Republic Forge, Colts, Kimbers, Springfields, Les Baer, Dan Wesson, Wilson Combat, STI, etc. and all 1911 clones 

MODIFICATIONS: Can be cut for a ambidextrous safety, MSH pin notch, and beveled heal

COMMENTS:  There is a maximum security prison in Russia named the "Black Dolphin" and these inmates can be put to work in the harsh coal mines of Siberia.  This black ivory was found there.  Under different light these will reflect gloss black or deep blues.  It is one of those things that makes these types of grips so special.  Extremely hard to find ivory like this, they are just another example of how special Mammoth ivory is after Mother Nature has worked them over for a few thousand years.  With equal amounts of black on each grip, they have good matching and investment value.  Click on the picture to see them on my Ed Brown Special Forces.  These are totally smooth and up close an almost 3-dimensional look.  They also have that warm buttery feel you only get with real ivory. 

If you want to maintain that high gloss, mint condition look, yourself just ask me to include a polishing file for $3.00 (see Polishing file in the main menu to see how it works!)

 Thanks Tom.  If these are your 1st "blacks" you are in for a treat.

MG005  - Meteorite - highly reflective cross hatching (Widenstatten) grips

ARTIST: Dan Chinnockmg005

Material: Mudusala Meteorite

PISTOL TYPES: Republic Forge, Colts, Kimbers, Springfields, Les Baer, Dan Wesson, Wilson Combat, STI, etc. and all 1911 clones Note:

COMMENTS: The word "rare" is simply not strong enough for describing the uniqueness of these grips.  First we have to take in effect that they are not of this Earth.  Second, very few Meteors that impacted Earth remained intact large enough to build something like a pair of 1911 grips.  It took billions of years in outer space for the predominately iron and nickel metals to form the crystalline cross hatch patterns technically known as Widenstatten patterns.  These "patterns" are unique to Meteors and each Meteor has its own unique pattern (its own "thumbprint".)  Then a great deal of it burned up as it entered our atmosphere and collided with earth.  What remained, man found.  These grips were made from the Mudusala Meteor. 

I have worked several years bringing these grips to fruition and this pair has all the great qualities of a Meteor built into a functional pair of 1911 grips.  Click on the picture to see a larger view on one of my pistols.  There is a short video out on YouTube.  Simply click on this link:  www.YouTube.com video 1  The demo can also be viewed by going directly to YouTube and typing in:  Meteorite 1911 grips.  The first video shows a pair of pistols Cabot Guns built out of Meteorite.  I believe the retail price for those pistols is over 4 million dollars.

MODIFICATIONS: Have been cut for an ambidextrous safety

COMMENTS:  I shaped and removed the outer crust of the ivory to reveal a cool looking gold ivory that almost has a dancing flame effect flowing from the bottom of each grip.  I just love these grips!  They will be very durable and easy to care for.  Truly a great looking pair of grips with maximum contrast to have them jumping off your black or blue pistol.

IVORY: Siberia - Russia

PISTOL TYPES: Republic Forge, Colts, Kimbers, Springfields, Ed Brown, Les Baer, Cabot, Dan Wesson, Wilson Combat, STI, etc. and all 1911 clones Note: Some Cabot guns require special templates to make grips. They have sent me templates for all of their models.

MODIFICATIONS: Upon request, can be cut for an ambidextrous safety, bob tail (Ed Brown) or Kimber's Super Carry Pro. Thumb groove for better access to magazine release.

COMMENTS:  Mother Nature tried to keep this ivory in untouched Mammoth white color, but the Mammoth had other ideas.  These grips still show the original pits and grooves the Woolly Mammoth inflicted during battles will other other Mammoths and when rutting the earth to lift out vegetation food.  Wrap your mind around the idea that they ate over 200 pounds of food a day and the impact their tusks took as a result.  Bronze colored ivory in these scars gives them a nice secure feel in the hand and yet they still feel soft in the hand.  They will be an extremely durable set of grips that will only increase in value when ivory like this can no longer be found.  Great warm buttery feel will make any pistol hard to put down.  Don't forget to click on the picture to see how they look on one of my pistols.

COMMENTS: Remember these are Compact/Officer sized grips.  Another bold set of grips that is a great example of why Mammoth ivory grips are so in demand.  It took thousands of years for mother nature to put the Blue veining in the surface of the grips and allow me to make a grip that is totally smooth and have a high gloss finish.  The color clarity gives them a 3-dimensional look when viewed up close.  Great book matching took some effort to achieve, but I think the results were well worth it.  Click on the picture to see them on one of my pistols.  These will be an extremely durable set & perfect for an "Every Day Carry"

COMMENTS:  Highly book matched, this ivory was cut as a cross section of the tusk and so we see the end grain like growth rings of a tree. They are inlayed into black G10 material that creates nice picture framing and will make them "pop" off of any black, blue, or two tone pistol.  Don't forget to click on the picture to see how they look on my Ed Brown Special Forces.  Totally smooth with a high gloss gives them that crisp clean look of color clarity.

GG957 - Light Ruby & Copper Mammoth Tooth ivory 1911 Gripsgg957

ARTIST: Dan Chinnock

IVORY: Mammoth Tooth from Siberia

PISTOL TYPES: Republic Forge, Colts, Kimbers, Springfields, Ed Brown, Les Baer, Cabot, Dan Wesson, Wilson Combat, STI, etc. and all 1911 clones Note: Some Cabot guns require special templates to make grips. They have sent me templates for all of their models.

MODIFICATIONS: N/A

COMMENTS:  This tooth had such hot crimson colors that for the 1st time I used copper to protect the tooth and give the grips a nice warm look.  You can let the copper go patina based on use and moisture in your hand or keep it polished with a few quick swipes of my polishing file (I will include 1).  Very nice clean tooth that gives you the feel of how the tooth looked thousands of years ago.  Don't forget to click on the picture to see how they look on my Ed Brown Special Forces. 

Wooly Mammoths had larger molars to help digest about 200 pounds of vegetation each day. The dark areas were softer and the light areas were harder. This created an uneven surface as they wore down and much like a cheese grater they made the molars more efficient. They fell out and were replaced with new teeth about every three years. Mammoth tooth grips have been made before, but I avoided them due to their hard brittle tendencies. This has now been resolved by inlaying the Mammoth tooth into tactical G10 material or Aluminum. They are now light weight, durable, and beautiful. Even more, these grips will over a few years begin to wear to your unique hand print. It will take a while, but it is cool to think about how your grips will form to your unique hand shape.

MODIFICATIONS: Upon request, can be cut for an ambidextrous safety, bob tail (Ed Brown) or Kimber's Super Carry Pro. Thumb groove for better access to magazine release.

COMMENTS: Just a great set of intense blues that are like a clean Sapphire.   These are a durable set that will upgrade the look of any 1911 and certainly add value since "blue" of this type is so rare. I also left just a touch of the outside crust so that you can see exactly what I see when working with raw ivory.  I do not know what I have until I start sanding this part away. These took a very high polish that will surely grab attention out on the range or in your holster. Don't forget to click on the picture to see how they look on my Ed Brown Special Forces.  Totally smooth, they have that warm buttery feel you only get with real ivory.

Check my new menu item "Ivory File". For $3 dollars, this file will keep that gloss and mint condition look on these grips. I even have a video demo on how to use it. So please check it out and tell me what you think. If you already own some ivory grips, this file will increase the value of that investment.

These have the square corner often desired by magwell owners, but I can put the traditional mainspring housing bolt notch in if desired. These took a very high polish that will surely grab attention out on the range or in your holster.

MODIFICATIONS: Upon request, can be cut for an ambidextrous safety. Thumb groove for speed access to magazine release.

COMMENTS: These are a great example of  Mammoth ivory.  The black crackle on top of white ivory gives them an ancient look of old tree bark (hence the phrase "Mammoth Bark".)  However, they are totally smooth, have a high gloss, and feel like warm butter in your hands.  This effect and appearance is why Mammoth ivory is so sought after.  Nothing else comes close.  These will be a very durable set of grips and so don't be shy putting them on your every day carry or every trip at the shooting range.  Don't forget to click on the picture to see them on one of my pistols.  These types of grips are starting to become rare since very little ivory has been making it out of Russia for almost 2 years and thus will hold their value extremely well (likely increase in a few more years.)

MODIFICATIONS: Setup is in place for an ambidextrous safety.

COMMENTS:  Has the header suggests, I think the colors are what we see in pictures of our Sun when solar flares occur.   The white veining is the hardest part of the tooth which created a jagged and uneven tooth surface for more efficient eating.  The black G10 bezel makes an even more dramatic effect and protects the teeth from chipping.  Don't forget to click on the picture to see how they look on my Ed Brown Special Forces.

ARTIST: Dan Chinnock

IVORY: Mammoth Tooth from Siberia

PISTOL TYPES: Republic Forge, Colts, Kimbers, Springfields, Ed Brown, Les Baer, Cabot, Dan Wesson, Wilson Combat, STI, etc. and all 1911 clones Note: Some Cabot guns require special templates to make grips. They have sent me templates for all of their models.

MODIFICATIONS: N/A

COMMENTS:  Has the header suggests, I think the color of these remind me of crushed red rubies and the burnt lava Sue & I saw while we were in Hawaii years ago.  The grey & blue veining is the hardest part of the tooth which created a jagged and uneven tooth surface for more efficient eating.  The silver bezel makes an even more dramatic effect and protects the teeth from chipping.  Don't forget to click on the picture to see how they look on my Ed Brown Special Forces. 

Wooly Mammoths had larger molars to help digest about 200 pounds of vegetation each day. The dark areas were softer and the light areas were harder. This created an uneven surface as they wore down and much like a cheese grater they made the molars more efficient. They fell out and were replaced with new teeth about every three years. Mammoth tooth grips have been made before, but I avoided them due to their hard brittle tendencies. This has now been resolved by inlaying the Mammoth tooth into tactical G10 material or Aluminum. They are now light weight, durable, and beautiful. Even more, these grips will over a few years begin to wear to your unique hand print. It will take a while, but it is cool to think about how your grips will form to your unique hand shape.

PRICE: sold to Jonathan C.

Glad to hear you and your friends love them!

Up close, the viewer can see tiny "flowers" grown together to create this unique pattern.  Grips will be very durable out at the range.  If you click on the picture you will see how they look on my Ed Brown Special Forces pistol.  Grips are smooth and have a high gloss.  I drove "tacks" for 2 hours with these on my Ed Brown.  So they are good to go!

MODIFICATIONS: Upon request, can be cut for an ambidextrous safety, bob tail (Ed Brown) or Kimber's Super Carry Pro. Thumb groove for better access to magazine release.  Traditional Mainspring Housing Pin notch and bevel on the heals

COMMENTS:  I gave these a hardened gloss finish to bring clarity and 3-dimensional movement to these grips.  Be sure to click on the picture to see them on one of my pistols.  The gloss finish was really hard to kill all of the reflections during picture taking.  I will be sure to include a polishing file so the owner can choose from a satin or gloss like finish (and change it back at a later day)

As some of you know, in 2013 a storm took down a 100 year old Oak tree that could have fallen on me in my shop or lucky for me, fell in the opposite direction.  Inspection of the aftermath revealed some interesting wood for grips.  As such I have recently started to build a few grips from extraordinary wood.  The rippled burled black offers a nice contrast to the honey eyed burl above.  Fully signed for those who are building a collection.  These have a Cerakote type finish making them very durable and a finish that looks like liquid glass

MODIFICATIONS: Upon request, can be cut for an ambidextrous safety. Thumb groove for speed access to magazine release.

COMMENTS: These are a great example of  Mammoth ivory.  The brown crackle on top of white ivory gives them an ancient look of old tree bark (hence the phrase "Mammoth Bark".)  However, they are totally smooth, have a high gloss, and feel like warm butter in your hands.  This effect and appearance is why Mammoth ivory is so sought after.  Nothing else comes close.  These will be a very durable set of grips and so don't be shy putting them on your every day carry or every trip at the shooting range.  I did a carry melt on all the edges to give them an extra soft feel in the hands.  Don't forget to click on the picture to see them on one of my pistols.  These types of grips are starting to become rare since very little ivory has been making it out of Russia for almost 2 years and thus will hold their value extremely well (likely increase in a few more years.)

Mammoth: Siberia - Russia

PISTOL TYPES: Republic Forge, Colts, Kimbers, Springfields, Ed Brown, Les Baer, Cabot, Dan Wesson, Wilson Combat, STI, etc. and all 1911 clones Note: Some Cabot guns require special templates to make grips. They have sent me templates for all of their models.

MODIFICATIONS: Setup is in place for an ambidextrous safety.

COMMENTS: These are in the most natural and pristine condition when the Mammoth expired.  Nice warm creams with gray and black veining offers a very ancient and 3-dimensional look.  They are inlayed into black G10 material that creates nice picture framing and will make them "pop" off of any black, blue, or two tone pistol.  Don't forget to click on the picture to see how they look on my Ed Brown Special Forces.  Totally smooth with a high gloss gives them that crisp clean look of color clarity.

Wooly Mammoths had larger molars to help digest about 200 pounds of vegetation each day. The dark areas were softer and the light areas were harder. This created an uneven surface as they wore down and much like a cheese grater they made the molars more efficient. They fell out and were replaced with new teeth about every three years. Mammoth tooth grips have been made before, but I avoided them due to their hard brittle tendencies. This has now been resolved by inlaying the Mammoth tooth into tactical G10 material. They are now light weight, durable, and beautiful. Even more, these grips will over a few years begin to wear to your unique hand print. It will take a while, but it is cool to think about how your grips will form to your unique hand shape.

Thank you again Kingsley.

COMMENTS: Crisp & brilliant blue on both the knife and the grips make this setup special.  Here is another opportunity to own a matching set of ivory grips and "your emergency backup" knife that has matching ivory and a Case Colored Damascus blade that is razor sharp and ready to go to work if needed.  Knife would make a great compliment to a Turnbull blued pistol or one of Wilson Combats blued pistols.  A perfect match to a Republic Forge pistol since the same team does the bluing for their pistol and our knives.  Really a cool setup.  Click on the picture to see other views of the knife and grips.

I have been working on a grip & knife matching combination for a long time and it has finally come to fruition.  Blade is 2 3/4 inches long, scales are book matched and silver pinned.
