K18: What's the deal with the turtle?

K18 Turtle Close-Up

We noticed there was a turtle icon on the throat of the new K18 head and on the new K18 arm guards. We also noticed a lot of people wondering why. To find out, we went to the source. Here’s what Kyle Harrison had to say about the turtle symbol appearing on his new line:

Turtles in my family have always been good luck (as they are in many other cultures as well, as you know). If you go to my parents’ house there are over 100 turtles around from pictures to sculptures to hide-a-key things, and everything else you can imagine. The turtle on the stick is actually the tattoo I’ve got on my left leg. [It’s] just a family symbol and STX was nice enough to let me incorporate it into my entire new equipment line.
