It looks like someone is going to be battling it out. Over pool! That’s right. All thanks to the Intimidator, the game is set to assume epic proportions. Created by McDermott Handcrafted Cues, the Intimidator masterpiece is touted as the most expensive pool cue in the world. And why wouldn’t it be! After all, it has 24K gold inlay and a gemstone base to brag as its mainstays!
Move over traditional ebony and exotic woods, this pool cue, is made to intimidate. It resembles the kind of weapon Thor would trade his hammer in for any day. Besides being carved in stainless steel, including 112 hand-polished precious metal handle inlays and an Italian obsidian gemstone sphere at its base, it features four-bladed wings that can rip a table to shreds. It was created from 82 pounds of solid stainless steel; it boasts 48 inches of large exposed blades, with 24K gold, Deep Relief, and French Grey Scroll engraving on the winged blade and over 210 separate inlays.
The 3D piece of pool art results from 1862 hours of hand engraving, hand etching & hand machining, after which it weighs 9½ pounds and costs a whopping $150,000.
