*21 July - I'll be away for much of the summer so if you have an urgent order, please message beforehand to check it can be fulfilled!
I am a little bit in love with this new Shot Ski!
Perfect for those times when you need to travel to a party, holiday, friend's house, wedding, hen do, stag do etc and need to take your ShotSki with you. Like our handmade Shot Ski, the Lock & Loader (or 'roadie') ski is a beautiful piece to look at. It is made from Beech, carved into shape and curved at the tip just like a proper ski. It is then stained with either an Oak, Walnut, or Black finish to create a vintage ski look. Unlike the classic Shot Ski, this is cut in half and then rejoined with a hinge on the bottom and a clip on the top. This means that you can fold the ski in half when you're on the move then when it's time for a shot, you can lock-and-load, straightening out the ski and securing it with the clip on top. Perfect!
If you're new to Shot Skis the idea is simple, 4 people stand in a row holding the ski. Fill the glasses with your tipple of choice (I would choose Jagermeister personally, though I've been known to have a shot of Prosecco too!) and then all take the shot together. It's great fun and a guaranteed party piece!
The ski has 4 holes for shot glasses (which are included) and is approx 180cm in length. Our customers tend to mount their skis on the wall after their specific event!
The additional beauty of this shot ski is that it can be customised for your own use or event. People like to decorate their skis in all kinds of ways, whether it be a message on the bottom such as 'We tied the knot, take a shot', 'Till Death Do us Party' or 'Jager made me do it!' So, as a group takes their shot, everyone can see your personal message! Or perhaps something on the top too, a significant date, a logo or a design of your choice. Others like to keep it simple and have people sign their skis with marker pen or paint pen once they have taken a shot.
Take a look at some of our photos or find us on social media for some inspiration;
We want you to be able to style your ShotSki however you like. Please send me a message when ordering to let me know what you're after. I'll then draw up some design ideas with different font and lay-out options so that you can visualise the ski before choosing your final design. The skis are decorated using vinyl, so you can choose white, black, red or I'm happy to explore other options if you'd like!
I have listed delivery time as 1-2 weeks but this can often be sped up if you need a ski more urgently. Just shoot me a message to double check first.
*some skis come with wooden 'plugs' where a knot in the natural wood has been repaired.
The 'Lock & Loader' - folding Shot Ski
Our skis are made from beautiful Birch. The pointed tip of the ski is curved to replicate a traditional ski and finshed with a dark stain. We usually make the skis with 4 shot glass holes as this allows 4 people to line up shoulder to shoulder perfectly but if you would prefer more or less, let me know. The shot glass holes are sized for a 'friction fit'. This means they fit snuggly and firmly in the ski but can be removed for washing. The glasses are included.
The Lock & Load ski has a brass hinge on the bottom and clip on the top
The messages are added to the ski using vinyl stickers. If you would like others to see the message whilst you take the shot (perfect for photos) then we will customise the underneath of the ski. It might be 'Happy Birthday Maria' or 'Georgie & Mike 12.06.13'. We can print any message but it's worth thinking about space available before adding an essay! Alternatively, we can also add a message on the top of the ski, a logo, go faster stripes, a decoration, whatever you fancy! See 'description' for more details.
We can finish the skis in either Oak,, Walnut, or Black
