[ Material #1: Walnut Wood ]
Walnut tree is described as one of the three most precious trees along with Mahogany and Teak. It has been used to make luxury furniture and art crafts from the old days since it grows straight to 30-40m and it is not breakable and useful to be processed.
[ Material #2: Sapele Wood ]
Sapele trees, which also reaches 40-60m, are distributed in the rain forest in countries like Congo, Uganda, Cote d'Ivoire, Ghana and Nigeria located around the African equator. There are beautiful stripes and transparent feelings on the surface of the wood, and expression changes with reflection of light. It's a little reddish color compared to walnut.

[ How to Install to the Camera ]
Please wipe up the sebum really well before sticking it to the camera---this is very important!!! After peeling off a double-stick tape on the back of the wood grip, you can just stick it to the camera along the horizontal line in front of the body.
At that time we recommend to confirm the location before you peel off the tape so that there will not be inclination or displacement. (You can remove it and do it again, but it is better not to do that many times for the tape sometimes comes off from a wood grip.)
[ When You Attach the grip to RX100m6 ]
The shape of the RX100 series of cameras is almost the same, but there are subtle differences among them. Especially the RX100 VI grip part curves a little steep compared to other models and there will be a little gap occurs to the flank when you attach it to the camera, but there is no problem on the use.
[ You can Customize It by Yourself ]
As the grip is made of wood, it's possible to shave the grip with a file and Leutor, or grinder, to make it fit to your hand.
When you shave the grip, the tone of the color will be different from the original part because the grip has a slight acrylic fiber coating on the surface. (The shaved part becomes lighter color.)
In that case, you can apply a very little home cooking oil to the wood and wipe it well and the color difference will be gone. When you use the oil, the part will become darker but in about a month, it will be settled after the wood absorb the oil.
