Engraved Kobra


The KOBRA1 is a one-of-a-kind hand engraved masterpiece by one of our nation’s exceptional talents. You may recognize this style as James White has been our sole engraver for the Exhibition Series Pistols since the beginning. His work is second to none and here is an example of full coverage engraving, allowing James to not only find his inspiration from our Kobra, but share it with us all as he carefully covered this beautiful stainless 1911. The Kobra model has been a mainstay for Ed Brown for over two decades and this Kobra will make a prize for any collector as one of the finest 1911's you can buy. There is no other like it from the serial number “KOBRA1” to the hand engraved grips, this is one exceptional pistol. The scroll even covers the top of the slide only making room for the Kobra’s Hood and the Iconic “K” for its namesake. Even the pair of magazines accompanying the Kobra are engraved to match the pistol.

If you are looking for a one-of-a-kind piece to complete your collection or maybe you are just getting started and want to acquire a foundation piece to start the collection off, this is the pistol for you. Maybe you love custom 1911s and are looking for a one of a kind investment that you can enjoy more than stock certificates or paintings, the KOBRA1 is the perfect answer for you. We're sure you'll be charmed by this truly unique hand-engraved Kobra!

The collector will receive the one and only KOBRA1 in a custom display case, a letter of authenticity, and a short bio on the engraver, giving you a truly unique piece that you can enjoy for a lifetime and share with others.
