    my 3 latest PFS builds are semi-conical shapes, the evolution left to right
    1) flat face, end handle enough narrow to allow pinky finger embrace
    2) flat face and the widest fork, complete finger tips groove along the frame
    3) curved face, medium wide forks, partial finger tips groove
    I've made these frames for sideways shooting and to assess the "lazy grip" technique, 2 and 3 expands this grip to an extreme and not useful with other griping technique as this shapes are not comfortable to hold steadily ... anyway as I did these ones for me 2 and 3 (finger tips grip) are really good performance challengers, I am very pleased with the outcomes ...
    regards

    When I look at these, I can see the magic that has passed into them through your hands.

    The wood, the angles, shape and finish are very pleasing to the eye.

    This is what happens when you give small chunks of incredibly rare wood to the Chilean prophet of slingshots. He will take them and form from them the most simple beauty.

    Mr. Arturo, it's cool to see them lined up side by side, the evolution is very clear. I really like that design, it's unique and refreshing in it's originality.
    Cheers

    hehe ... thanks friend, for me the MOST useful application for an angle grinder hehe

    thanks my friend ! nice compliment, but this shapes are really easy to do ... the Picohio is an amazing wood for this purpose, it doesn't chip when rasping as happen to me with soft woods
    greetings to Germany !

    thanks ! just following what the wood wants ... I guess !

    yes my friend, that dinosaur age rare wood is amazing ...

    thanks dolo, the "groove" was a great discovery at least for me and the way I shoot, the frame really floats in your hand ...

    thanks again friend, glad you liked ...
