What I am am about to post might be my most intensive post ever. I believe that this is the greatest piece of art ever created that can also house cues. Pictures can not do it justice. Phil is a fantastic artist, his attention to detail is insane. Each time I look at this case I find something new. Anything less then 20 pics and I am just not showing you the case, it really needs to be seen in person. It took down the AZB COTY in a landslide and that was without revealing some of it's coolest features. This is the biggest and most intricate case that Phil had ever made up until it's creation. It is by far the baddest case on the earth.

Please don't think I am delusional enough to think this could ever function as an actual case a person could walk into a pool room with, but that aside it is an incredible creation and a true piece of art. Fully loaded it weighs slightly less then it's owner;-)

Jim <---Can look at it for hours

Front Lid up close, the depth and layering is crazy, not to mention the materials used. The eyes are some sort of metal medallions

One of the things I didn't notice was this snake hidden under the lid when case is closed.

Below the snake is this 3-D skull, not sure how Phil does it but this case has incredible depth, I tried (and failed) to capture how this skull pops off the case.

As you look left and right of this we see Skull Row going down either side, the right side filled with vampire and horned skulls, no 2 are the same, I have no idea how many skulls are crammed on this case.

Keep in mind all of the above work is completely covered by the pad and the strap, which like the whole case has incredible detail. Below is the strap

Now for the really good stuff, the thing that makes this case unlike any other you've ever seen and the reason this case can kick your case's ass.
Check out the skull in the case, I've named him phil, 1/2 because of the case's creator, and 1/2 because of his eyes.

Well, Phil isn't just a cool guy who lives in this case with the cues. Phil is a request I made when ordering the case, I asked Mr Eastwood if he could add a weapon in this case. I was thinking maybe a cool little knife with one of those squiggly blades and a skull on the handle or some type of ninja star built into the design. Well Phil Eastwood is far more masochistic and on a grander scale then even I could imagine.

The weapon consists of 17 steal ball barrings of varying size from a little bigger then a pinball machine ball to slightly larger then a dime wrapped in 3 hand tooled leather straps intertwined and securing each ball. Somewhat like a whip on steroids. I can't imagine the sort of damage one could inflict with this thing.

Seeing Phil's work in person is the only way to grasp how much is going on. When I saw his cases at the 2013 ICCS, I had no words. Still don't.

Thanks for sharing this one!

You didn't even get to see the back ScootR, I don't believe my words and 50 pics can discribe the work and detail that has gone into this case.
Phil is an insane artist and his mind works on another level. I don't have enough words to speak on his talent.

Jim <---thinks this is the greatest piece of art ever created to house pool cues
