The design was to instill bad ass solidness, serious confidence and sheer weight. Rusted metal plate found in a friend’s wrecking yard, rail-road spikes and hoarded rusted lever group springs slop welded and plasma cut with simple hand drawn curves. Plasma cutting was also used on the new brass plate in order to match the jaggedness of the rusted steel shaped plates. Large industrial black bolts ruggedly seals the deal.
