If you’re a knife knut as well as a firearms fan, you may have heard of We Knife Co. They’re a Chinese knife manufacturer that turns out some incredibly well-made and nicely designed blades. Thanks to a tip from Clay Aalders (former TTAK editor and now digital editor of Knife Magazine), we hear that We is branching out a little bit.

They’ve sent an announcement — it doesn’t really even qualify as a press release — on their new titanium grips for 1911 pistols. Really all they sent were the following specs:

Name: 1911 Grips
Item No.: A-06
Overall Length: 4.25”(107.9mm)
Overall Thickness:0.27”(6.84mm)
Material: 6AL4V Titanium
Fits: Full Size 1911 grip
Weight: 80.6 g / 2.84oz
MSRP: US $175 / pair

Compared to some others we’ve seen, that’s not a bad price.

We’re not typically fans of many fancy aftermarket scales for 1911 pistols, but have to admit that these appear to be beautifully machined and look great. No word on when they’ll be available.

  1. Considering that China produces more than 100,000 metric tonnes of Titanium per year, I’m not surprised. That’s more the Russian, Japan and Kazakhstan combined…

  2. hong fong nong. I likes Houges thank you HOW is it American’s can buy everything under the Sun but gunms from China? Riddle me that., , , “Now about that crossdraw rig you started messing with Possum?” , ,,Glad you ask, Man it’s a natural for me. Went from 2 second beeps to 1.5″s average, did get a couple one seconders. Ever had that scary fast feeling? Well yup, I’m smiling.

        • Oh, anyone can draw from a holster in one second. But putting holes into the target as well? Consistently? In a hi stress situation? Range practice can be fun, but when your life is on the line with a real life baddie all your bragz don’t mean anything.

          Let’s talk aboutz da gunz…

        • Depends on the range. I’ve practiced enough that I can easily draw from a level 3 retention holster and hit center mass as long as it’s no more than 10 feet. I imagine most people can do it if they stick to the same setup and practice it enough. Unfortunately a lot of people don’t have the chance because they go to gun ranges that don’t want people drawing and shooting quickly (not for no reason).

        • Pg2,
          He didn’t put all the qualifiers on it that you just did after calling him a liar. Maybe you just did 5 Seconds of research on the internet and realized that his claim was a modest one at best and now you are resetting the goal. I suspect it is more likely that you just feel bad about your own piss poor performance.
          So yeah, let’s talk about the guns, but maybe this time when you don’t know what you’re talking about, you keep your mouth shut.

      • Wasn’t high stress and wasn’t 25 yards. It was clay pigeons on a board at ten feet.

        • And my hit ratio was only 75℅ or so. Also this is not my EDC, it’s my have fun outfit. My EDC is a 54-1 in a cheap IWB. I don’t even time myself with that, maybe 4or 5 seconds to get a shot. I’d have to get the drop on them for sure with that, because I just don’t think I could stare down the barrel of a gunm and hope my fast draw beats his trigger finger.

        • Don’t bother by what he says. I’m sure he can dodge vaccine filled syringes flying at him too. Maybe we can all pitch in and put together a syringer like in fallout and give it a try!

  3. “Compared to some others we’ve seen, that’s not a bad price.”

    That’s one way of looking at it, certainly….

  4. China is an enemy of the USA. Nuclear missiles aimed at us. A massive modernization underway of their army, air and naval forces. Massive spying operations against the USA on every front, including military and industry.

    It is bad enough we cannot avoid so many of the manufactured goods coming from that communist country, but since when do Americans lack for MADE IN USA firearms and parts?

    Why any American would stoop so low as to deliberately support a Communist regime when it is EASY for them to not do so is beyond my comprehension.

    I question the patriotism and the cognitive powers of any American who thinks their 1911 is not in need of Communist components. Mine certainly is not.

    • Because the average American is nothing if not cheap. Just walk through Walmart or Costco. They’ll spend a dollar to save a dime. Personally, I go out of my way trying to find US made products and if need be pay a little more and if worse comes to worst I at least try to find stuff made in this hemisphere.

    • My bitch too. Can’t understand why we support the only major communist country in the world. Sometime it’s all about the money, consumers exempt.

        • That is more accurate. Though ultimately they have no real loyalty any system. They do what’s going to increase the power of the state and the elite.

        • I agree with Hank. Loyalty to the Party = loyalty to its new Emperor/President for Life. The more things change, the more they stay the same. It is no surprise that every twenty years or so they have to have a purge of all of the corrupt elements in the elite ranks, like the generals that run major manufacturing companies that supply the PLA with its armaments. Communism is for the masses, capitalism is for the elite.

  5. No thanks. Metal? Where I am going to grip the firearm?
    Bad enough getting burned by your seat belt latch or door handle after sitting in the sun for a little while.

    Dead tree for me every time.

  6. If It came from Taiwan I might buy it but at $175 for essential a decoration I would still take a pass. They aren’t going to make me shoot better.

    As per discussion above. 30 rounds from 7, 10, 15 yards and 20 rounds from 10 yards left and right off angle 76% on Q-bottle target and two rounds that would likely hit the femoral artery from an APX.

  7. “We’re not typically fans of many fancy aftermarket scales for 1911 pistols.”

    I don’t know who “we” is but I sure as hell am. Powerful should be beautiful.

  8. So for more than the cost of a new Yeet Cannon I can get titanium grips on my 1911.
    I think aluminum will do just fine.
