RESERVED for kikkou - Tahkli style support spindle, longer shaft, titanium tipped in Montana and Dymondwood

This heirloom quality small support spindle has a small whorl on a Dymondwood shaft around 240 mm long, or about 9.7 in, weighing about 0.73 oz (23 g). It is fast and light with the trademark perfect spin of my spindles. The small whorl of Montana, a very rare wood from Queensland, is a pretty shape, hollowed on both faces. Photos show the item you will receive. Dymondwood is a composite wood material made from dyed birch veneers laminated together, and is very hard wearing and strong.

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. The support tip has a carefully shaped titanium point for long spins and is made for long life and low friction. The whorl is balanced with two tiny silver inlays for perfect spin.

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

The spindle operates at a very high speed and is very easy to flick with a small diameter where it is held to be flicked allowing high rotation speeds to be achieved with ease. It is suited to short staple fibres such as silk or cotton for very fine singles.
