Atlas

The Atlas started life as a commission request. I had a good friend and customer wanting to commission a cross between my Syrtis and Ikara models. They wanted the resin channel construction of the Syrtis, mixed with the arm cut-out and general ergonomics of the Ikara. We played around with a few designs and ideas before settling on, what is now, the Atlas. I really liked what we’d designed and decided I’d offer the Atlas as a regular stock option. It combines two of my favourite designs and was an absoute blast to build! More of these are most definitely to come!
