    Hi guys.
    Got bored so i thought id have a go at making a single finger duster. pretty tricky and lots of filing!!
    here she is (its a copy of some Ti ones you can buy on ebay)
    don't think i will EDC as its pretty illegal in the UK. but it might end up in my glove box ;)

    Looks really cool, but what's its purpose (I'm a noob when it comes to finger stuff unless its a ring or knuckles)

    You'll have to let us know how it works when you get a chance to punch a mugger in the face.

    Looks amazing especially for just using a file!
    Are you sure you didn't use a CNC machine.;)

    Awesome, reminds me of Grim from Billy and Mandy, which I've been watching on Netflix lately. :D Link for reference: http://grimadventures.wikia.com/wiki/Grim

    Ha! Glad I'm not the only one that knows what I'm talking about.

    Thanks for all the comments, it took about 3 hours in total. Drilling the eyes and mouth out were the trickiest bits! I chain drilled the rough shape and the knocked out the middle, then filed and sanded smooth. Simples ;)

    Like the idea of a single finger KD, easier to use than a full size version and easier to carry. Nearly finish an oak KD and will be looking a designing a single one next. Thanks for new ideas.
