    I had a first press edition (first book off the test press......had rough edges, uneven pages, blank hard cover) of The Stand. Got it signed by Stephen King.

    POS old room-mate decades ago ripped it off of me.

    ^ all right, just to appease the salivating masses......

    I have a prototype cut out of sheet steel. Drilled, sharpened , whacked a few times in dirt.

    Brother @Se7eN today plasma cut some steel sheet, and will be bending/welding a prototype.

    This is going to take time folks....

    Okay. Remember. Multiple design concepts, this one of them.

    Shape and size are not finalized yet. 3/16's thick carbon steel.

    That'll keep em guessing!

    ok, i wont be an ass too much :D ...those are the sides of the shovel (one side) which have been plasma cut and will welded at an angle to for the scoop of the shovel. Remember this is prototype stage. Actual ones will be stamped and heat treated.
