Default Bigmtnman's Elk Stags

Hello. My name is Phil and I'm a stagaholic. It's still early in my addiction, but I have it bad. I have 4 pairs of Ken's grips and I ain't stopping there. Anybody else have the same addiction?

Not sure about the addiction part, but Ken does some beautiful work.

Too many folks seeking Kenís stags. You need to move fast when he posts them.

If they have to be Ken’s, I have several. If just any old antler I believe I have 8 or 9.

Caribou is heavier than Elk and more dense. Mine has a little color. Sorry, I am not picture savvy.

I have the same issue with Culina grips. If I buy a gun that has non original wood or rubber I just have to call them up and see what they have. If they don't have any available I pick a wood and wait with anticipation.

Default Iíll add my two...

Here are my two examples of Kenís excellent work. An engraved Baby Chiefís and a 657ND snubby. You know we are just going to make it harder to get them if we advertise how beautiful they are. A J-frame pair most recently went in 4 minutes!

Default Elk Antler pair outside my door this morning

Just received my third set of Ken's outstanding grips. They are N frame and will go on my 4" nickel Model 57 no dash. Can't get any better. On par with KB grips.

I don't think he does. I think he just sells here on the forum.

I've only got the one pair, but it's the best fit for my hand of any J-frame stocks I've held.

Was Ansel Adams a gun guy? I didnít know that. Love his work, though...I used to have a nice framed print of ďMoon Over HalfdomeĒ. Now the ex-wife has it

I tried to order too. No go. He makes what he wants and always sells them. Usually right quick. One hint he did give me is he makes the K-frames when the antler piece won't stretch to an N. So , the K-frames come up less often.
I used Ansel as an example of a professional photographer. Whether he was a gun guy, I don't know.

I'm glad to know you can get some use out of that fairly nice holster...I'm still looking for a couple of EDC holsters for my .38-44's, and that one just didn't quite suit my needs...

As much photo work as he produced outdoors, I'd be willing to bet he had some sort of firearm around just in case the wilderness critters decided to challenge his right to be in their home......Ben

Sorry I'm late to the party, but the mailllady just got here...I may not even qualify to show these since they're not elk, however Ken handcarved these for me...My newly acquired 1974 Model 19-3 wears a gorgeous pair of moose antler grips while my 1962 Model 36 no dash is sporting a beautiful set of caribou grips...The J-frame holster also arrived today through the courtesy of CQB27 and his holster giveaway...I'll wear each of these with pride!......Ben
