    I picked up my Hakan grips today at the post office. Roughly 2 seconds after I arrived home from work I had the screwdriver out and installed 'em on my Charles Daly 1911.

    WOW!

    That's all I can say; WOW!

    I can't believe how beautiful they are! Made from Californian Buckeye Burlwood, these puppies fit my gun like a dream. Hakan made them to my every specification, and he did it quickly. You couldn't ask for a nicer guy to deal with, or a better product.

    Whaddya think? :D

    THANK YOU HAKAN!!!

    Those are very nice looking grips, they almost look like agates or marble.

    Ok, Hakan!

    I wanted to ship off several nice pieces of Osage Orange, Birdseye Maple, and Burl Walnut, but it looks like your inventory of lumber is already well-stocked with the prettiest of varieties. The California Buckeye Burlwood, as seen on Parke1's gorgeous examples, are they available in a Colt Officer's ACP size? ;)

    Thanks for all of the great comments (although Hakan gets all of the credit, of course)!

    Hakan's email address is hakanpek@online.no

    His website, where you can see beautiful specimens of his work, as well as all the types of wood he has available to use is http://www.imageseek.com/hakan

    If you have any type of gun that Hakan makes grips for, PLEASE order some from him. This man is a master craftsman and deserves our support.

    Thanks again!

    I hate you Parke. I can't let you be the only one in the group with Hakan grips.

    Does he just have that wood lying around or did you have to send him some blank material?

    Monster, he did indeed have the wood in his workshop. If you visit his website, you can see examples of all the wood that he currently has available.

    Thanks again for all of the compliments.

    Nice grips on his site but I didn't see any prices. Anyone have a ballpark?

    I don't want to waste his time with an email if the price is waaay over the top.

    Hakens, eh? Suddenly I have the urge for a full-sized 1911, just to mount some nice grips on. :D
