Calgary Stampede Bit

As a designer/creator I often have the desire to get out of the box.  With this bit, exploration happened in many different areas.  The mouthpiece was one that I had a general idea of a taller port, but wanted to have some shape to it that created some added surface area.  I used some recently learned forging techniques to help me  The shank is one that I have never attempted but has always interested me.  Les Garcia is one that I know made the bit previously, but I can’t say where it’s origin came from.  I put my twist to architecture that fits my taste.  The Concho is another area that I am constantly wanting to explore.  The border around the dome is something that troubles me as designer.  We often fall into a pattern so I wanted to add some interest influenced from old architecture.  And finally with each piece my engraving is a journey to create more depth and feel.  This bit was fun and very satisfying for me to.
