    Congratulations! Cocobolo is a favorite of mine because of its irregular coloring and figuration.

    It's usually reddish and patterned, but that would have been about my third guess on these. Love the grain!

    I don't run a lot of wood grips, but those Esmerelda's look really nice on that SS VBOB. It's amazing how the right set of grips can really make the gun.
