Revolver grips
Review by  Kevin K from Gloucester, VA USA
This wood is simply gorgeous. It is hard, but sands and cuts well. I am a beginner, and found this pretty nice to work with. I made a set of grips for a Ruger Blackhawk, and the color compliments the gun well. Natural striations when waxed look awesome!
