Default "Lothbrock" (deadwood Madrona OTT natty)

I refinished an older build with TruOil and I'm digging the results. The bands are 1.25x8inch black Simpleshot, great for 5-15g ammo. It came off an old limb and I was skeptical but the core looked solid and this proved true after ripping through layers of crumbly wood and ancient worm colonies. I wanted a pinch grip like this and this build more than met my expectations. I had shot it before while unfinished and I really like the power of these bands being slightly wider than the 1inch wide bands I normally use. I named it after the character, Ragnar Lothbrock, from one of my favorite shows (Vikings) at the moment.

Nice carve out. I think you got the best in color and grain and I like a shiny finish.

That came out great! Lots of character in that grain, and the colors are just beautiful.
Good name, too, the shape definitely has a viking vibe to it. The outline reminds me of Thor's hammer:
