Default Patrick Grasshorn picture thread

Hi, guys and gals. I would like to start this picture thread to pay tribute to our very own Patrick Grasshorn AKA Executioner. Patrick is a master craftsman and a super guy to deal with. I am very proud to call Patrick a friend. So here are some of my Grasshorn grips. Lets see yours.
Here is my model 15,65 and 625 sporting Executioners great looking Elk grips.

Not the greatest pic, but here's my recently acquired 44 Hand Ejector third model wearing a pair of Patrick's beautiful Elk bone grips.

Don't have a pic to post,but that's because I just got my first set of Patrick's grips about an hour ago and am still trying to decide what to put them on. I must say though,that I am impressed with their quality and appearance. Thanks again Patrick.

Patrick's truly an outstanding craftsman.
This .357 dates from 1950.
Patrick made the grips to my specs, and they're the best-handling I've ever used.

Here is a set on my 624. I LOVE Patrick's grips, and highly recommend them to anyone!



What I really like about them is their asymetrical shape:

Ken,
that is a great shot of the bottom. Could you possibly put up a shot of the bottom of both those, and standard magnas side by side? Also, the same two sets from behind?

I have large hands, and while magnas look good on my 24-3, they just aren't practicle for me to shoot with. Patrick told me via e-mail once that he can make his wider, so I was curious what they would look like side by side.

Thanks,
Tim

Tim, I would be happy to do that, but am away from my safe/guns. Those pictures I put up were taken probably a year ago or so. I have pretty big hands too, and these grips feel great to me compared with magnas.

Ken,

Thanks for the quick reply. I was just hopin'.........

They sure do look good on your gun. I talked to him about making me some without any bark. I like the slight purplish look against the bluing, of the barkless elkhorn. Man, if he could only make them like that for the N frame with the same shape and style as Kurac does, he'd sell 'em faster than he could make 'em. In my opinion, they would look a lot nicer than Ivory does.

Default Maine moose stags

Ha, I've got you guys beat. I had this Maine moose antler laying around for several years. I finally contacted Patrick and asked about the possibility of having him make me a set of stocks from it. After sending him the antler, he thought he could get 2-3 sets of stocks from it. I told him to send me a set of N frames and he could keep the rest.

My stocks went from this:

Mike, contact Patrick and he'll work with you. He'll make the grips fat, slim, smooth, any level of bark, etc etc.
Patrick is great to work with, he's not happy with the finished product until you are.

Beautiful grips and another great feature is that no two pair are alike. They are the holy grail of grips.

Patrick is a pleasure to deal with.I called him yesterday and my grips were finished today.I told him how my gun was being "Python Blued" by Colt and gave him Carte Blanche as to selection of material,graining,ect.My only requests were that they extended past the frame as in his pictures and inclusion of the Colt Medalions.The worst thing to do is hamper a true artist,I just said you are the artist make them the way you think they should look.Found out today the Detective Special is ready to ship from Colt and the grips are going out today.I am like a little kid at christmas.Pics will be forthcomming asap.Thanks for the recomendation.....Mike

Here's my latest set, on a 19-5 nickle. It will surely not be my last. I love his grips.



This J-frame set is gorgeous. It finally found a permanent home on my "always" pocket revolver, a Model 37 no dash Airweight:


The same set when they were on my 1964 Model 36 no dash, before I put this revolver in the safe and put 'em on the M37:


And yep . . . I get a lot of PMs about this 1980's era custom, chopped barrel Model 25-2 that truly looks even better with Patrick's wonderful Elk stags!

Cruizer RN, Not only are Patricks grips a work of art, they are an addiction. I now have 3 of his sets. I love the way his grips look on the gun. Plus with me being a cop everyone sees my grips. THey all comment on them and I gladly reply and give them a business card...

Holy ****!! I hadn't considered stag-style grips till seeing this thread. Now, I need a towel from all the drool!
I'm definitely going to check out the site and decide which ones to get...then I'll get the gun to go with the grips.

Model 28, Model 36 with Patrick's grips. The Colt SAA is wearing unknown stag grips, and the knife is custom made.

You know that feeling when you buy something and it does absolutely everything you hoped it would? It fits, it feels perfect, you want to look at it all the time? You feel wonderfully satisfied that you made the right choice and you're happy every time you look or handle it? No? You don't know that feeling? Call Patrick and order a set of his American Elk stag handles for your favorite S&W. Then you'll know!

I bought this set off of a fellow forum member and Im not sure if they are a set from Mr. Grasshorn but I think they are. Here they are on my trusty 25-5.

This thread has been dormant for a while so I thought I'd bring it back to the top, with a couple pictures of my Model 63; sporting a new set of grips from Mr. Grashorn. They fit great and feel nice in my hand.

Thanks for reanimating this thread. At the time it started I didn't have any examples of Patrick's work, so I didn't really follow it closely. In the interim I acquired a nice set of N-magnas from Ohio Outdoorsman before his untimely passing. I like to think I am honoring both him and Patrick by putting them on this prewar Heavy Duty.





This is what a western lawman's gun ought to have looked like during the Great Depression (or maybe any time, for that matter.)

Patrick made these to fit a 2 inch Model 10; i think they look good on a Model 15 as well.
