I have one set of Spegel grips in cocobolo (shown on my 19-5) which I purchased from a forum member a couple of years ago and which were promptly delivered. Not sure I could have waited 20 months; you’re a patient soul!
It is an “endangered” wood.
I think Craig must have stored up a huge load of cocobolo. Ahrends seems to have run out and offers other woods that are somewhat close but not quite as fine as Cocobolo.
