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)
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.
