It looks like the duck poker recreation that one guy posted a while back.
Can you confirm whether it is the same person?
Also, is this an almost similar design, or has the dimensions been reworked with?

Yeah, exactly the same table cloth. Looks like its the same person from the duck poker cases.

I really like the simplicity of design #1 more, but wish it had in-cuts for picking up the board like design#2.

Yeah it's the same person. The recreation of Duck was not for sale, it was for testing CNC, anodizing, details, etc. The dimensions have been reworked with as you can see from the brass poker weight and the thinner frame.

this is great news. I read that quite a while ago and was wondering if he was going to sell some cases in groupbuys. the quality looked to be better then the duck poker case. I look very forward to receiving it.

Aluminum 6061 is a softer alloy with magnesium and silicon in it. Aluminum 7075 is a harder alloy with zinc in it. According to some books I have at work, the hard-anodization in 6061 can vary in finish while in 7075, it varies much less. Seems like feng is trying to get a better anodization finish and that's why 7075 is being hard anodized while 6061 is only being color or dye anodized.


There's different aluminum alloys which probably affects how the anodization takes.

In other words, 6061 =/= 7075

http://www.anodizing.org/Reference/reference_guide.html#Type3

Looks like you can hard anodize 6061 though.

Yes but the thickness of the anodization layer in what you're showing me is .001 less so the anodization quality won't be as good.

Thanks, you saved me from having to look this up. Nice cases but I've spent way too much money already!@

It's the four suits of a standard card deck. Spades, diamonds, clowers and hearts.

I believe he is asking if the engraving on the back can be poker suits instead of FMJ. like on the duck poker.
I like the idea a lot.

I'll take the FMJ logo as well as the poker suits.

It would be tough to decide one over the other if I had to pick.

I think this grey is lighter than the titanium grey.

If the darker titanium grey was offered I'd jump on it.

I don't think there have been any samples for the grey so it could be the dark one. *Fingers crossed*

Feng told me in PM when I first wanted to order it is a silver grey and not as dark grey as kmac titanium.

I guess what I am saying is that feng had a interest check thread open for a few weeks and they were open to all kinds to ideas. they will also be making more in the future so you should share your thoughts and maybe they will make them happen.
