Partially Sandblasted Gear Punk Freehand

Product Number: 002-579-0026

Nate King’s passion for high-octane, high-performance machinery is well reflected in both his past and present principle vocations – transmission specialist at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and working on sleek, finely tuned aircraft (respectively). His natural affinity for, and attraction to vintage styles and anachronistic motifs are often on prominent display within his carving aesthetic; his Steampunk inspired pipes would be an obvious example. These two aspects of Nate’s complicated matrix, however, have never become intertwined in his carving; it’s always been something of an “East is east, and west is west” thing. The veil between the two has fallen, and their unification is manifest in this most ambitious Nate King presentation to date.

This is an homage to the “faster-than-thou”, bored-out, bad-ass muscle cars which ruled the streets, and defined the young male generations of the mid-50s through the early 70’s. From that asphalt-grabbing tread, to the die – a universal symbol of fortune, life & death hanging on every roll – this isn’t a NOS-sipping “Fast and Furious” roller-skate, but a straight from central casting display of Detroit muscle. While the jeans and pack of Camel straights (rolled up in a t-shirt sleeve, of course) are only implied, there is nothing equivocal within any element or the overarching spirit of this tribute to the immortal youth within all of us. Arriving in a dedicated, metal reinforced carrying case, this magnum opus (heavy on the “magnum”) is quite comfortable in the hand – the inner hub is tailor made for a thumb – and sits with an implacable stability. Whether in the paw, or proudly displayed on your desk, this is one masterpiece worth betting pink slips for.
