Thought last christmas's SITH was over ? Think again :-)
Sep 13th, 2017 at 12:29pm
 
My christmas sith parcel from Tomas, arrived this week.

A little late, but damn, was it worth the wait.

Prepare yourselves to feel serious envy Smiley

First pic: complete parcel contents:
One paracord sling with decorated and cut pouch.
Cords were left for me to tie - left it as long as i could. Going to throw a decent rock a helluva long weigh.
Beautiful decoration. Feels great in the hand and once the pouch has been used a little it'll throw a wide variety of missiles.

Second sling: A balearic style split pouch, made from a single piece of leather.
Very supple and makes a lovely sound when used. Quite different to both a sling with cracker and the paracord 'whistle'
Throws well, feels good - I am prepared to fight the split pouch Smiley

heavy duty, long dog lead. You could probably anchor an elephant with this Smiley
There's also a heavy paracord knot (see leather balearic sling pic) - that will make great indestructible practice ammo for balearic target slinging.

And now we get to - what to me - is the highlight of the entire package.

One of the most skilled and beautiful pieces of leather work I've ever seen !
A katal Hyuk coffee coaster.
The pictures don't do the sheen and colour justice.
Good as the rest of the stuff is - this alone would have been more than enough for me.
Truly a work of art - and as you can see also functional Smiley

I'm in 2 minds whether to hang it on the wall or use it.

Was it worth the 9 month wait and £29 customs fee - oh hell yeah !!!!
Smiley 

Many, many thanks Tomas !

Real nice. I have some of Tomas' handiwork myself so I know just how good his stuff is in person. Pictures never do it justice Cheesy

Wow. Incredible craftmanship. I bet that pouch is very aerodynamic.

Yeah should be. Has a good clean release. Not quite a full lenth distance sling - but long enough to get a fair bit of distance with a good sized rock Thumbs Up

Throws  a sock ball well Smiley

Tomas does great work. That sling pouch is really striking. Havent seen one like that. I recieved one of his slings in a trade once and I felt bad for the one I sent him after seeing his lol.

The interesting thing about the katal hyuk slinger is that it's the exact same stance that Jorn - one of the german slingers - uses.
Exactly the same shape !
So unlike most historical slinger depictions - this one is based on an actual slinger actually slinging Smiley

You know, Jorn doesn't look 9'000 years old noidea

? noidea

But, I did mean Jorn Smiley
Why doi I keep calling him jurgen ? noidea

Given that I can even hear the announcer calling 'Jorn michealson' as the next slinger (that's probably spelt wrong) in my head.
