All Right guys, here is the thing...
Since i started shooting, i first took a glance at feihu forks and decided that i wanted one, i've never held one or seen one personally and always figured they would be on the larger size, really dont know why i came to that conclusion but they looked big to me, so i never bought or tried making one before.
a little while ago, i was browsing GZK page, and came across the measurements of the Feihu forks, turns out they are tiny as hell!! 70 mm total width!! and 13 mm posts!!
so i had a huge a$$ mezquite fork laying around and decided to make one of my own, here it goes.
i dont have any pics of the original fork, but here it is, after a long rasping session.
After the rasping i found it had a huge ass crack on the middle of the fork, nothing to compromise the integrity, so i epoxied it with a little watercolor powder and kept on going
After that, as you guys know, just sand until your fingers come off at the hinge...
finished up to 2000 grit, gave it a light wax with a home made mixture of caranauba, beeswax and turpentine.
Hope you guys enjoyed the little trip down the building (or sanding) road.
Now to band it up with some thin light bands and see if we can hit something with if, if not, there is always a place for it on the "Box o' trading slings"
