Anyhow, I wanted to know if anyone know where I can get a set of grips for my Kimber SIS Custom that has pictures/inlay/carved girls on it, that I can actually use on a daily basis.

    Any type of material would be fine. I just want something that different, but it has to be for DAILY USAGE, and not something that is intended to be frame mounted. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
    Eagle Grips shows a pic of elephant ivory grips with a nude woman scrimshawed on them. The price is $800. Not my cup of tea to have a nude woman on handgun grips, but whatever floats the customer's boat.

    Another suggestion that may require a little more leg work on your end, but ensures you'll end up with what you want.....
    Find a pair of Ivory (real or faux) that you like, then take them to a local trophy, or award shop. Most of them have laser engravers now that allow them to put pretty much whatever you can think of, to whatever scale YOU want it, on the grip panels. Setup can be pricey, but if you search around, you may find one with the pattern you want already in their library and won't have to pay for the design work.
    Just a thought.
    Good luck!
