Hi everyone. I found this strange fork a couple months ago, and this week I desided to finish it. It has 14cm (from palm to fork tip) extension, and is supported sideways by thumb and forefinger. Low forks, so no brace is needed. The wood I think is called Junipher in english. Hope you like it.

Cool, you will want to give her a wrist-brace for better performance!

Wow, again Mother Nature gives us a new design!
You have a good eye for recognizing the potential in that fork, NW. Great job carving and finishing, too!!

Love that natural fork NW!! That is cool!

Tex indeed nothing much new under the sun as they say..... a few months ago I made a wooden wrist-bracer much like the pic minus the extended forks just experimenting a little with wooden designs.

Thanks for your comments. Conserning a wristbrace, the forks are so low and the support of thumb and forefinger sideways makes it quite steady. I almost only shoot 3/8s so I dont need very heavy bands. Next time I change the bands I will make them longer so I can shoot half butterfly style.
