Leaping Wolf Colt 1911A Grips In Black Buffalo Horn

September 11, 2009

Below is a pair of Colt Model 1911 pistol grips in genuine black water buffalo horn. These lustrous pistol grips were scrimmed in a technique called “reverse scrimshaw,” which is white on black.

The challenge of reverse scrimshaw is that you are drawing the opposite of the way you would on paper (black on white). Here, I’m drawing the light areas, not the dark.
