Hartriegel rulez

I wanted to make one more Panther custom today. Settled on the European Dogwood, cut of a nice chunk from the wood I harvested about two years ago.

I love that wood. Hard, dense, heavy and bright - with that faint pinkish tone that makes it so special.

As always I put on a nice shine, and oiled it with Linseed.

  3. Jorge. I've purchased one of your Panther series from Dankung, and while it is super in most respects, I've never been fond of having the handgrip unlike a regular handgun...ie, the widest part of the grip is on the same plane as the forks, when a person shakes hands, fires a pistol, etc at right angles to the top plane of the weapon.

    Why is there no "handshake" grip? Can I have one made for my Panther?

    Thanks,

  4. Jeorge, do you sell your slingshots? I really want to get one because they are the best slingshots in the world. If you can please let me know and also if it can be posted to Australia.

    Thanks - Dan Breen

  5. Jörg, guten tag,
    I'm a new follower, and I have a question about the Panther: I like the stainless steel, I'm with you on that, but I was wondering if hard anodized aluminum would also work?
