Finishes are semi gloss and matte oil.
Wow great looking grips - who made them?
Based on his name, i’m guessing @Highfiguregrips
Love Koa !
Koa has some of the highest chatoyance in its figure of any wood. Cool man!
See @Mr. Knight....... Bob's not the only one to uses that word... @Gripwright
Beautiful Grips. What is matte oil? I really like that look. TIA.
Top shelf, Sir!
They are beautiful. What are they going on?
Oh, other people use the word, some even correctly.
It is a beautiful wood for a fine set of grips. About thirty years ago I made doors for boats from it; I could by all the 8/4 x 6 I could afford, I assume those days are over.
I love the way Koa grips look. These are the ones I bought not too long ago...

Thanks for the compliments, it is some fun material to work with. The material I have was cut in the early 90s
Jon @ highfiguregrips
The smooth area is semi gloss and the checkered area is oiled. I just give or the matte oil name because of its sheen.
They are on nothing yet. They are for the colts and clones full size.
I don't know what is was like 30 years ago, but today, you can only harvest the dead trees.
Why yes , the chatoyance is quite remarkable !
