    Well against Mr. Masters Beauty´s mine Looks like a Monster :D

    But i have to admit that i´m damn proud of that Baby! After i had seen the Denim Micarta "MAX" from LW i fell in love with that design! So i build my own :p (Pic 1, edit: deleted the template, as i´m not sure if he would allow me!)


    After finishing the raw sanding i stumbled over the edc series and my jaw went right to the floor!

    "To the drawing board!" i thought to myself, and this is what i came up with! (Pic 2-5)

    I hope you like it , and i want to thank Nathan Master for that lovely Piece of Design and Function!

    Nice work! Love the palmswell with the different directions of the ply. How does the folding one shoot? Looks like an interesting concept.

    Thank you! it was a bunch of work but it really pays off :D
    Well i shoot it not so much yet, but the folding one shoots really nice so far! it sometimes feels a Little bit fragile, but i asume, that there is a Little Play in the handle! The Frame is actually not fragile, but i wont use to heavy bands either! All in all its a handy Little toy :)

    Very nice! I really like the fullness through the thumb and forefinger area, looks very comfortable to shoot long sessions.

    Hey Jack,

    somehow I missed this one!- Which is a pity!!
    What I see is that you already know how to
    build what´s on your mind!

    And I know I will have a very curious eye on what
    your future builds will be!

    Very good sculpturing!

    best regards,

    Be
