Default Custom 1911 grips?

I want some made. I can't find what I want. Anyone know of a company that will work with you on a set?

I have a set of one off wood grips that were a prototype for S&W I'm not using... Probably would fit, they go to a subcompact

I made some for my Colt New Agent out of ebony. The stock ones are cocobolo. If they fit, you can have them.

When I am done with my class that I am taking next week, I'll start searching heavily. Just don't have time this week. I actually really like the hogue grips that are on it, but I'd like an additional set that are custom. If you find anything, please post!
