New grips for my B,

I didn't care for the hard black plastic grips that came on the new Blackhawk in .41 Mag I bought so I decided to make a set. Made them out of walnut and haven't added any finish other than Johnson's patse wax. It's not the first set I've made but hopefully getting better.

Thanks guys, I agree that the darker you make them the more visual grain you lose.

Those grips look great. Medallions and everything, nice work. You have a very pretty six-gun there.

Those look great! Interestingly enough I've been wanting a set of the black ones but I can't find them anywhere (just because I don't have any).

I have some grips that my Dad made but I have not had the gumption to try it yet.
