Default Introducing the "Göffel" PFS

Today I made my first pfs shooter from an old beech spoon that I covered in bamboo which gives it a really nice contrast. It feels pretty comfortable in the hand and has a very smooth surface. You can't resist to touch it! I attached a very light bandset to make it relaxing to shoot with. Astonishingly it hits pretty accurate and for me it's an everyday carry keeper
(PS: 2nd pic includes a 14mm steel ball)

Beautiful contrast in materials. I know you will know this already but turn and tweak your pouch to avoid fork hits. I have killed 3 pfs shooters by forgetting to do it.

All I know is that I don't know nothing.

Nice work! I also love the bamboo wood, the grain, how easy to shape is, everything! Again, you did a great job!
