    I just wanted to come back to this comment. I 100% agree with this. I prefer simple designs that let the wood speak for itself.

    As an example:

    Is that the Vortex .. the WRC core does stands out a lot!

    Agreed .. simple designs trumps in the long run.

    Carl likes things trumping things.

    Nate sent the blade, so at Russian Church, I should get a hit.

    Have not finalized the name, but since this sucka came in significantly heavier than expected, something like below could work.

    Heavy Handed H-Bomb

    It's looking like it should get in tomorrow (Wednesday, April 14th)! If you're keeping with the McDonald's menu naming theme, I think you should name it "40 piece Chicken McNuggets".

    IDK... 3x-H doesn't have much a powerful ring to it, but Heavy Handed H-Bomb is also kinda long.

    Maybe HEAVY THREAT would work. Who knows what it will become...

    Hi Nate... the naming convention isn't really along the lines of McD sandwiches... where I got the pounder theme from is from one of their sandwiches, yet not really connected to their line.

    American Football has a team whose radio announces put a spotlight on ground running plays where the ofense really pounds the defense on a play and they use the McD Quarter Pounder as a commercial sponser... it makes sense there... so I integrated that concept into my TT commentary at the clubs and meetups... so when someone made a powerful FH shot I would say something like "Dude on Table 2 just force fed dude a QUARTER POUNDER to win a point" or something like that... usually hilarious... so I carried that theme over to blades.

    Usually, I am inclined to name something to give it an aura of power... but power isn't everything... I might end up naming the blade the MAYTAG SPIN CYCLE.
