I’ve been tired of seeing the traditional holdfast design. Seems as if they are all the same. I decided to change it up a bit and also try out a new technique. I would like opinions ax well. These are just a prototype. On a finished set the shaft will be rounded and the duckbill will be shorter.

This is from 1” stock so it was harder to egg a nice twist. I believe 3/4” stock would look nicer and I could show the diamonds better. Do you all think there would be an interest in a “designed” holdfast?

Like the design and concept, as long as it’s affordable, I’d say you’d have no problem selling them. I’m just about finished with my Roubo and would love a set or two of these for it.
