I have a set of Eagle rosewoods, and like them very much. The wood is very attractive, and the checkering is perfect. At a recent gun show, I looked through maybe fifty-sixty sets of Eagles, which were in unmarked boxes (so I had to look throught them all, right?), and was not as impressed with the quality of some sets. Maybe they were old; a lot were marked "Made in India", and I think they're now made here. The checkering was flat on some sets, and the styles were somewhat dated. The wood itself was beautiful, though. Don't know about the faux ivroy.
