Smile Keith Brown Take on Kearsarge Grips

I loved Caleb's recent thread on original Kearsarge grips. Each and every one of them are unique pieces of functional art. I would love to own a set or two of the originals, but in spite of looking, over the years I have never found any avaialble for sale. BUT, I have been lucky enough to acquire several sets of Keith Brown grips that were carved in the Kearsarge style. So I would dedicate this thread to "Keith's Kearsarges" and ask you to post photos of your sets, and the guns they reside on. I'll start it off with some photos of mine:

An early set that lives on an 8 3/4" Registered Magnum:









Next is a set that lives on an H&H Zenher oak-leaf pattern engraved Model 29:





... and lastly, a set of K-frame beauties on a December 1934 K-22 Outdoorsman:









I'm looking forward to seeing photos of your KB Kearsarges

Hah, I've never seen a set of his Kearsarge style on the secondary market. I'd love to snap them up if they did come up. At the moment I'll just have to content myself with a wait for a set with my initials

Keith sent me a few in progress pics of the RG Kersarges. It's always fun to see a masterpiece in progress...
