She is a beauty now. I will call her The Black Pearl aka The Door Knocker!

The swell I added would have been ingenious had I not glued it to the wrong side. It will run okay the RH side, but it feels perfect on the LH side.

I wanted a Door Knocker to keep lashed to my bicycle. Gratefully I was taught as a kid to practice doing things right and left handed. And in the US we ride our bicycles with the flow of traffic, so a RH hold is pointless unless you are backing up the fast lane.

The Gypsy Tabs are critical. It shoots with a whisper and barely a finger tickle on the slaparound now. The c.a.(satan's snot) finish is anemic and can be fixed with a dash of patience and some fine grit wet sanding in the shower.

Shoot Safe!

I wanted to call it the Door Dimpler but I felt that was a bad example for the younger shooters.

Same here. I've been using them out of convenience more than anything, but I've been really pleased with them thus far. That's a gorgeous frame, and I do love how sharp you made those tabs.

I believe my next experiment will be Flat bands to Tabs for both TTF & OTF ..... May be a lot easier to bolt a leather tab on to my frames instead of having to file those dreaded grooves and wrapping & tucking.
