    Hey guys and girls

    I couldn't resist anymore... I wanted a slim, light, pocketable shooter that i would take everywhere... And couldn't stop going back to simple shots "Chalice" so i shaped it a little different and called it as titled.

    Made from Oak natural core, and scaled with scraps of Yew, figured Jarrah, and maple. Also got some bits of buffalo horn on the side of the diamond shaped palmswell.

    With this holy grail in hand, no doubt that King Arthur could have slain the Killer Bunny rather than waste the Holy Hand Grenade.

    Seriously though, great work on this chalice. It looks awesome. Great background too.

    Arthur sure would be better off with this sling than with that scimitar that was lobbed at him by that moistened bint


    very nice sling

    A beautiful shooter, love the mixture of exotic woods/horn.

    +1 likeing the pics of your landscape. Reminds me of my Rocky mountains--except our viaducts are ugly concrete monsters compared to the one in your picture.

    You chose one of my favorite designs, and you have done it very nice. Nice combination of wood, and a beautiful complete work.

    I am sure this is and will be a very nice shooter.
