This cuff is bent between the last and second to last spikes to provide a more snug fit (as seen on film and on tour).
This is a screen-accurate cuff with the original spike shape, custom sized for wrists 2.25"x1.5" - if this matches your wrist size, you are welcome to purchase it! Just know that if you feel it may be a hair off for you, these are meant to be customizable and it's no issue to fit them to your wrists.

Finishing the cuffs:
If you print with the unpolished strong and flexible, check out 3D Printing Nerd's (featuring Punished Props) video on finishing. (Thank you to Three Red Diamonds here on Shapeways for this link.)
You may need to sand the cuffs; I often find that I can skip this step, but it depends on the material and the way you prefer to finish. Use a sandable primer (one optimized for plastic or an automotive type) and sand between coats. You can sand between metallic paint coats as well provided you use a very high-grit sandpaper.
Another option if you want an extreme gloss without the sanding is Smooth-On's XTC-3D; but keep in mind that if you like the flexibility, you will lose a little of it (depending on how much you apply) as this product is a hard resin.

- You can sell finished items only if you have my explicit permission and have discussed this with me, and providing you state clearly that the base product comes from this Shapeways shop.
