A Pimp in a New Orleans Whorehouse Might have Mother of Pearl Grips on his Pistol...

If he had Good Taste in Grips And he was Prosperous.

Price a Pair ("Eagle Grips" is the most common Source).

In some instances, you can have more invested in the Grips than in the Gun.

The Samurai weren't perfect.

They had a few Flat Sides on their Wheel.

It goes without saying that they were far better people than most Americans today.

They had a code.

Without a code, one is almost certain to fall into both Hedonism and Pragmatism.

{And a "Flexible Code"—Oxymoron, What?!?—Is far worse than no code at all...}

Did anyone take the time to read "The Hagakure"?

Its available free online and is only about 50 pages long...
Patton ( while not the know all, do all authority ) was absolutely correct in his assessment of pearl handles. Not sure how that relates to the subject matter but I will go with it.

Pearl handles offer more opportunities for failure in a combat situation. There is a reason that the 1911 was not mass produced with such flash, for military use.
