I'm looking for grips that are green, gray and black wood. Exactly like the wood used on the Kimber Eclipse. What is the name of this, I'm assuming lamitate, wood? Pics would be appreciated.

The wood on the Wilson Slim-Line grips (see MC Op below in sig.) is "Diamond wood". If your not wanting the traditional brown/amber color of most American hardwoods, diamond wood looks great with darker guns.

These laminated woods have been sold under a variety of names including, Diamondwood, Dyamondwood, Pakka wood, and the general name of wood micarta.

You can buy the material from many knife maker supply houses, although it's hard to find it in pieces big enough for pistol grips.

Many custom grip makers can make grips to order using the wide variety of colors of these laminates, and it comes in literally dozens of color combinations.
