    Good evening, y'all!
    For the past 8 months I've been working with a client who goes by "Lasher" on the OK Shooters forum. He has given me permission to create this thread, showcasing the grips he commissioned.

    For the most part these were all straight-up custom, but a few came from my existing inventory. Most of those were modified to his spec before shipping.

    We had a great time with this collaboration, spending many hours via phone and email...he has a great eye for wood and a lot of great ideas about various treatments and inlays for the grips. We made every effort to let the wood "speak for itself", trying to show it to best advantage.

    Did I mention yet that there are 37 sets in this collection? This might take a while, so please bear with me. I plan on putting just a few sets per post....they're identified by serial number and there will be a brief description of each set.

    So grab the popcorn and a beverage of your choice, the show starts soon. Thanks for looking, and thanks again to "Lasher"!

    ---Bob
