Funny story:


So mine and Ron’s first official project together several years ago was for a set of Ivories for my ,then, newly purchased Wilson Combat Compact custom.
The first set was spec’ed with a thumb relief for the mag catch. They came in. Looked gorgeous but.....DIDNT FIT! We then found out the hard way that not all Wilson’s, and not all Officer bushing placements are the same!
So the grips went back to Ron and we worked on a second pair (that turned out to be beyond perfect).
Well flashforward years later and Ron Still had these , essentially unusable grips laying around and he had a genius idea on how to put them to use!

This is a M1911 “ultimate equipment” knife with an S35VN Steel Blade! The grips fit like they were designed for it! It’s funny how things work out.....
Fate maybe?
