You would like the name of this one Mike. Customer had the decal made and it's hard to read IMO because of the crazy font he used, but it says "King Slayer" biggrin.png

Just so you know ... as soon as I got "Longclaw" ... I started calling the little rod you made me, "Needle".

 

But you're correct ... a true "Needle" would be a 1 weight.
