Segmented 1911 grip set full size
Carbon fiber with Turquoise TruStone and mammoth tusk with G10 backing.
Carbon fibers have several advantages: high stiffness, high tensile strength, high strength to weight ratio, high chemical resistance, high-temperature tolerance, and low thermal expansion. These properties have made carbon fiber very popular in aerospace, civil engineering, military, motorsports, and other competition sports.
TruStone, this beautiful material is made from natural stone ores which are crushed, pigmented and then stabilized in acrylic resin. This creates a material which is vibrant and beautiful while also providing the strength and stability to ensure that it will be very durable.
The material in these grips is Woolly Mammoth Tusk. The undersides of Woolly Mammoth Tusks often show wear, suggesting that they were used in scraping snow and ice off of the ground cover of vegetation during feeding.
They also used their tusks for protection from predators, attraction during mating and as a display of dominance to other Woolly Mammoths. We proudly show our respect by using this material.
Mammoth fossils are 150,000+ year old natural material so patterns and colors vary.
