Buffalo Horn Knife Scale Blanks

Found some nice Buffalo Horn Blanks to install on one of my Buck 110s. I'm planning to practice the process of replacing them on the Buck 501 I bought for $5 at the gun show.

You know, I was just looking at them and thinking the same thing.

Has anyone found someone that could take blanks like this and make a nice set of 1911 grips ?

Maybe one of the small grip manufacturers might do it for you.
I've been trying to find the files to be able to cut them with CNC router but I've not been able to find them.

I remembered the shop that did the cerakoting for my LSU 1911 was expanding their service offerings and it looks like they now can make grips, so I've got an inquiry in to them on whether they can make these in to some Compact 1911 grips.
