    I met Mel Watkinson at Hall of Vape in Stuttgart and while I don't squonk much these days I had to buy one of his beautiful wooden squonkers! I asked when he was going to make a regulated mod and he mentioned he was working on one... I made him promise the first production mod #001 was mine!

    They are made from 100-year-old bowling balls!

    Well, mine is now in production and here are some pics! Bazinga!

    The mod is made from a 100-year-old Bowling Ball and the wood is Lignum vitae.

    Lignum vitae is a wood, also called guayacan or guaiacum, and in parts of Europe known as Pockholz, from trees of the genus Guaiacum. The trees are indigenous to the Caribbean and the northern coast of South America and have been an important export crop to Europe since the beginning of the 16th century

    "Lignum vitae" is Latin for "wood of life", and derives its name from its medicinal uses; lignum vitae resin has been used to treat a variety of medical conditions from coughs to arthritis, and chips of the wood can also be used to brew a tea.

    Top Ten Heaviest Woods
    • Mpingo (African Black Wood)
    • Snakewood.
    • Leadwood. Rated 5.00 out of 5.
    • Desert Ironwood.
    • Caranda (Itin)
    • Lignum Vitae (Guaiacum or True)
    • Lignum Vitae (Argentinian)
    • Kingwood (Violetwood)
    Guaiacum officinale, commonly known as roughbark lignum-vitae, guaiacwood or gaïacwood, is a species of tree in the caltrop family, Zygophyllaceae, that is native to the Caribbean and the northern coast of South America.

    The history behind the wood makes it exceptional.

    The first production model's screen was slightly skew so Mel started again! Mine is now almost ready for shipping! I can't wait for this to arrive from Scotland! The Eon is handcrafted from a 100-year-old bowling ball and the wood is the very rare lignum vitae (guaiacum officinale)! This is pretty much a Chicken Dinner!

    Nope, it's not stabilised... it's actually harder than stabilised wood.

    It’s technically an antique.

    Hi Rob

    Lovely story that went with the mod making. What is their retail price going for regulated mods?
