Checkering Prices:

Standard Point Patterns:

$75.00 for a small forearm pattern and up, according to size of forearm and pattern choice.

$75.00 for a grip pattern and up, according to pattern choice.

For point patterns I usually ask the customer to send or fax a photo or even a rough sketch of what they would like. When I receive it, I will get back to them with an exact price. Some will leave the pattern choice up to me.

Fleur-de-lis patterns:

Around $200.00 for forearms and $200.00 for a grip pattern. Again, it varies according to size.

Fancier Checkering Patterns:

Patterns such as animals, etc. are considerably more due to degree of difficulty and time involved. A few examples: the eagle grip shown below and the deer forearm are $275.00. French checkered saddle grips are $350.00. The deer on the butt is $225.00 (one side).
