      All plastic dice with rounded edges have usually been polished in a tumbler and inherently end up not random (like some edge might be polished more than another edge). You can especially tell this on d20's where some numbers may be worn off or down a bit in the tumbling process, thats a sure sign of non symmetry. There are special precision dice you can buy if randomness is that very important to you, they usually don't have rounded edges. Again thats how plastic dice are manufactured.

      As long as these dice aren't greatly off on randomness, I feel confidant they will be just as random as a normal common die.

      Great stuff, can't wait to get my hands on them!

      The dice will be tested to be random and the holes will be perfect. The photo shows a test and is not completely finished. This is an handmade product and lava stone is really hard to carve, but we are working to do it more accurately we can!

      Thats some great work there, though I am concerned how you generate the randomness of the results.

      Would it be possible to receive dice that I order without the rounded edges?
      I really like the look of the sharp edges.

      DAMN. Dont hurt the fingers. This looks chancy as Hell.

      I'm amazed at how well he can maintain those angles... Definitely looking forward to these things...

      I'm slightly worried about the fingers as well, looking forward to these getting here and using them possibly alongside my R.P.S.L.S dice that I backed a while back.

      It really does look like your more likely to cut fingers than dice with that saw. Hope you don't.

      Keep thinking he's going to lose a finger! Fascinating though.
