Esmeralda Grips

In case you don't know, Esmeralda O'Sheehan makes the most beautiful cocobolo 1911 grips around! Each piece is one of a kind with EXCEPTIONAL wood selection. The photos don't really do them justice at all.

You can check out her website for more info about her.
Grips by Esmeralda (http://www.esmeralda.cc/)

This set is textured with a nice Celtic design.
These grips have a dark red-brown color. (gun not included)

These Esmeraldas are smooth cocobolo grips with a satin finish.
Exceptional wood figure.
They're actually redder than they look in the photos. (gun not included)

Wicked Grips

Known for some of their exotic materials and aggressive designs these folks can also craft fine traditional 1911 grips.

Here's a link to their site.
Wicked Grips (http://www.wickedgrips.com/)

I have one set of burl 1911 grips. Very dark wood gloss finish. (gun not included)

Tru-Ivory

Tru-Ivory grips are used in many custom 1911s and are virtually indistinguishable from real Ivory grips. Very handsome when mated with a blued 1911.

Their grips are made to order.

See their website.
Tru-Ivory (http://www.truivory.com)

I have a set of their glossy Natural White grips. (gun not included)

VZ Grips

VZ Grips are well known. I shouldn't have to explain their product but here's their website if you want to know more.

VZ Grips (http://www.vzgrips.com)

The material has a great feel - hard to explain.

320 Canvas - I don't know if you can really tell from the photo but the grips are very dark olive. Very handsome grips with great feel.

Limited - Although it's not apparent from the photos these VZ grips are very aggressively textured. They are the most aggressively textured grips I've ever felt. They were a limited run from VZ and are no longer featured on their website.
Some people don't like the extra "bite" of the texture but I actually like it. They're especially useful for anyone wearing gloves.
