Circassian Walnut Burl Grips for Bobtail Full Size 1911
These English Walnut Grips are selected from the nicest pieces in our inventory and are then crafted with high attention to detail. The grips are finished with an oil finish to bring out the beauty of the wood and leave a satin gloss finish.
English Walnut is the King of Hardwoods for use in prized gunstocks. Its figure, color, and strength make it the choice of almost all the top gunmakers. While American or Black Walnut is a fine wood for gunstocks and handgun grips, it's a never as nice as fine English Walnut.
Whether this Walnut goes by name English, Turkish, French, European, or Circassian, its all the same species. Often the choice of name is based on the location the trees were harvested.
I found a great source for some very nicely figured English Walnut that will make some exceptional grips. These are cutoffs from the production of a high end gunstock blank supplier. This wood is from trees from the western US and from the Republic of Georgia. I'll be featuring more of these grips in the near future. And the price is incredible for grips with this kind of figure! You'd expect to pay twice as much.
These are unique grips and the grips you receive will be the ones in the photo.
