I have been thinking about this design for some time now and just finished my first one of this type. Its called a Cobra Wedge because of the flat top shape and the wedge type handle. I hope you like it.

That looks fantastic! Very ergonomic...Are you gonna run some serious bandage on it? Fantastic work!

Yes, heavy bands. That was the exact time reason for the wedge handle. I go under I could grip it better and tighter then any other shape. I'm wanting to make a mold for it and make some metal ones.

That's very unique.....I love it! Jeez, it makes me jealous almost! I can't seem to find inspiration or motivation, nor can i come up with my own original designs or concepts. :(

@Racoon......you will. With your talent you will most likely make something amazing.

@GunGuy...thanks buddy!

@Flipgun....thank you very much. I'm going to make another but with a narrow top and more of a pickle design and with similar handle.

Thanks Arturo! I got a feeling I'm really going to like this wedge handle. Good for light touch or heavy. The narrow one I'm making next will be to your liking.:)

Very ergonomic! Lots of thought went into it! I like it! Very cool build! Lookinf forward to see some shooting video!

If you don't mind, I have two other questions, one of it a little personal: you seemed a little "exhausted" in the video, somehow pale... is everything ok? Hope you are all up to normal and I just misinterpreted it!
And for curiosity: I spotted a lawn mower to the right at the wall, but I have never seen any grass in your backyard! Are you mowing those stones to make the neighbours think you have got a nice green yard, or are you hiding a paradise on the other side of that wall? :)

@vestlenning.....thanks!

@seppman....thanks for the compliments. I just had all my top teeth pulled and have been in a lot of pain. You probably are seeing that. That little green thing is a rototiller. I tore the grass out and planting a garden.:)

I ground down my teeth when I was young. The bottom teeth won the battle. Over years of grinding the teeth got really short and into the nerve. It was a matter of time before I was going to be miserable. So after cost considerations I got them pulled and choose false teeth for the top. They are pretty good now days and my smile looks better than ever.
