    Hey guys, I thought I would share my latest sidetrack. :cool:
    I am calling these one handed tetsubo although I will likely do some 2 hand versions as well.
    Right now I am mainly making them from Cumaru hardwood, which is extremely dense!
    I am giving them a nice scalloped texture. All of these will vary slightly.

    I building and taking orders for these now.
    Standard is 20" oal. They weigh in at appx. 9.5 oz and balance half way up the length.
    Right now I am doing black or cotton wraps. They are epoxy soaked for great durability.
    Pricing will be $140 shipped in the US.

    Ahahahahaa "shushers". Love it.

    These look sweet - I'd consider ordering one, but can't imagine what Canadian customs would make of it.
