The Inspiration: Black Walnut (Juglans nigra). Can grow 100' tall by 6'wide. Walnut is extremely shock resistant, which makes it the first choice for rifle and gun stocks. Its ability to absorb recoil, without splintering, is unsurpassed. The United States army maintained large inventories of walnut during both world wars for the manufacture of rifle stocks.
Walnut is also an excellent wood for turning. Its natural oiliness allows the wood to slice cleanly. As well, iIts diverse figuring offers the lathe artist interesting design possibilities. It sands and polishes well, producing a rich, lustrous finish.
The Scene: These shades were built to impress. A riveting combination of mirror reflective lens and wood legs make the Juglanfly look like a rifle has been attached to your face.
Definitely a more masculine set of sunglasses, the end to end reflective coverage is almost shield-like in its design. You have absolutely no mercy for the sun, as these polarized lens will blot out every ray.
Who said wood didn't look so damn good?
Not you, that's for sure.
