Dyavol - Titanium tip supported spindle in Stabilised Figured Black Heart Teatree, Montana and Dymondwood.

This heirloom quality spindle is a hand made item, designed by Malcolm Fielding and made by apprentice maker Jory Freyee in the workshop of TheSpindleshop. This item is in stock and you will receive the item in these photos. 

This original design for a a small support spindle has a thin straight shaft and a larger diameter twin wood whorl at the base. The spindle shaft is made from Dymondwood for strength, stability and long service life. The spindle tip is made from an insert of titanium - one of the hardest metals - for extreme long life.

The whorl is made from Stabilised Figured Black Heart Teatree, and the trim is made from the rare Queensland wood Montana.

The spindle is finished to a very smooth surface, polished with a french polish and then a final gloss of carnauba wax for a long lasting shine and protection.

Your spindle is checked for quality and spin before despatch and comes with tip protectors and is packed with some top quality roving and a signed slip with the woods used listed and date of making.

This spindle has a long very fast spin and excellent balance. Stability is great due to the proportions of the spindle and the shape of the whorl. Hidden pin inserts in the whorl edge perfect the spin and balance of this spindle.

Dimensions - spindle length overall approximately 245 mm, (9.75 in), weight 23 grams (0.81 oz approx). All my spindles are tested before despatch and a sample of our top quality Merino fibre is included free.
