I had some time this afternoon, and with an SA6 arriving (hopefully) this week sometime I produced a set of prototype grips. Finished with Red Mahogany Danish oil. If anyone wants a set something like this let me know.

They look quite nice! I'm still not sure about the olive oil (extra virgin?) but well carved!

LOL good idea!
I used linseed oil when I was in shop class in school, with two light coats of varnish over it and light sanding in between it still looks good today (I bet).

Ebony is VERY difficult to work - it is crumbly, extremely hard to carve (chips come out as dust, V-difficult to shape & carve. Here's a pistol stock in Ebony.

here it is, a 17th Century Dag (German Wheel Lock Pistol)

This pistol was commissioned and sold for $8,000.00.

I only showed this ebony stocked pistol to demonstrate how beautiful it can be.

Too, when you look at the work done on these grips - file marks, etc. Well, it's your piece of ebony to do with as you please.

I suggest you make your own.
