CHUNKY Steel D20 for DnD
A single CHUNKY steel D20 for DnD. It’s made to order from a 50mm mild steel ball and weigh about 450 gram. Delay before shipping: 3-14 days.
This is the D20 that means business. Bring it out when it really matters and show your intention to make a difference – needles to say, it’s a heavy hitting piece of equipment!
Hand made CHUNKY D20
The d20 is forged by hand, with nothing but hammer, anvil and raw skill. It’s made in steel and is the result of careful and precise forging without the use of any machines or grinders. This is a large rustic d20, underscored by the unique aesthetic of traditional blacksmithing.
The CHUNKY metal d20 is not inked, but the option to have it inked is available in the drop down menu. The ink used is a high quality alcohol ink or acrylic paint, applied by hand with a needlepoint precision – quite literally.
Forging a Steel D20 for DnD
Normally steel dice would be machined, but as a blacksmith I choose to forge them. This gives them a unique forged finish, that comes from being heated to 1200 degrees Celsius. Through careful hammer blows the dice are shaped and corrections are made to balance the dice. The process requires a patient approach and thorough geometric and material understanding. The final product is rustic dice that carries a rich story of dedicated craftsmanship and skill.
Rolling the CHUNKY D20
The CHUNKY D20 rolls nicely and gives a satisfying “THUNK” when it lands, as you might expect from such a large D20. The pointy bits on the dice have been knocked off, which helps facilitate a nice roll, but please be mindful of how you roll this massive piece. Due to the mass of this thing it’s recommended you don’t drop it from height, and instead roll it from the palm of your hand. Always use a good mat or tray to roll this on to avoid damaging furniture and floors. Should all else fail, it’s almost heavy enough to work as a bowling ball.
Balancing the CHUNKY D20
The D20 is balanced as well as is possible and will not have any noticeable preferences when rolled. With dice forged by hand there will be inaccuracies and signs of the forging process in the finished piece. Most noticeably will be the placements of numbers, which will not always be perfectly placed.
Weight of the Steel D20
At about 450 grams it’s a heavy D20! It will likely scratch or dent your table and you should use a rolling mat or tray to protect the table you’re playing at. Options for trays and mats can be found here!
You will without a doubt be the person at the table with the heaviest dice, so be prepared to receive comments about it, and maybe tell your friends about how it was forged by hand in the fires of a Danish blacksmith’s forge. And remember, bring a rolling tray!
