Sorry Steven But Your Skewers Suck (Mine Are Better...with Pics)

So after reading about folks doing Tandoori style cooking on the egg I decided I wanted to try.  I purchased these Steven Raichlen flat skewers:


I was sorely disappointed when I received them today so I ran out to our shop and started looking for some 1" flat SS bar to make my own.  Here are the results.  Keep in mind this is the first and only one I have made...I plan to make 4 more and expect each to get better as I hone my skills :)).  Actually the guy in the picture is our shop foreman...he did a little teaching for me.  By the way we are NOT metal fab shop.

One more note...this is the first SR product I have not been 100% satisfied with.  I really like his stuff.

This is the skewer by itself...I haven't smoothed or polished it yet.

This is beside the one I purchased from Amazon.

This is side by side after I have smoothed and polished my skewer.  You can see that the Steven Raichlen is super short...I don't know how you could get very much of anything on it.

You can't really tell in this picture because of the light but mine polished up just as nice as his.
