    WARP Drive BLEF foil fins ready to go

    We've been through some improvements and have done strength testing, so the fin is now ready for sale, pin, plate and screw included, free shipping. Fin is hand finished to 1200 grit.

    Get 'em here:

    If anyone wants a 6 or 7 inch version ( or indeed any custom size, 8 inch max) we can do also.

    That looks deadly. I've been stabbed in the foot twice by fins, but that bad boy would take a leg off.

    The leading edge is not sharp, the bumps are smoothly rounded to the foil shape and the fin is definitely safer than a typical thruster fin, the polycarbonate has some 'give' to it as well, stiff and strong but we've bent one over thirty degrees during strength tests.

    Will this fin be able to transport me to to the future?

    Certainly, being a postmodern creation it exists in all moments of time and so does the user.

    Are they under $100K? If so it's a steal!

    Roy I'll need to get one to put on my PP retro I've been speaking of on swaylocks. I have been hand foiling a plywood fin with the leading edge bump.. Good god it's hard to do. I think your 3d printing is a pretty solid idea.

    I knew I've seen that shape before. On Nat Geo.

    Nice, some of our fins have been nicknamed 'Patu' fins after maori war clubs.

    These wavy edged sword blades used the same principle I'm sure, and the alternative theories for their existence are pretty weak:
