Grips with matching 1911 Knife

I ordered a set of mag well cut grips from Brown's Custom Grips. He also makes knives to match. Check out the detail on the knife....the screws. The button that is a mag release button. Engraved with M1911. Pretty sweet.

This is a different wood than I ordered but it's a good pic of the knife and matching grips.

No I didn't. Between the grips, mag well, mags and recoil spring kit, the piggy looks like a refugee from a concentration camp.

I will, but based on the price of the grips, that knife won't be cheap.

Reading the many testimonials though, Adam Brown is a real craftsman. I think he'd be a good resource when you have some extra cash for something special.

I've seen a couple of shops that sell those knives, I think they look good sitting next to a 1911. I have a couple of working knives, I carry one everyday and as far as a practical knife goes that fat handle and blade shape just wouldn't work for me.

Good looking grips. Can't wait to see your gun when everything is installed!

Great looking grips. Front strap checkering will be helpful with those smooth grips. But they are beautiful.

Don't worry, I'll post a beauty shot once I get the grips. I need to find a girl in a bikini to hold it though.

I got the one-piece MSH mag well yesterday and it is very nice looking. It looks much better then the (shhh....plastic) stock MSH, but the fine checkering matches in count. Machined steel and plastic just look different.

I like the classic styling of a 1911 and don't want to go too overboard with changes...(don't mess with success) but the burl wood I think still looks mainstream, considering Kimber offers wood grips standard on some models. Personally, I don't care for skull grips and naked lady grips—not that there's anything wrong with that.
