Teardrop - Titanium tipped Russian style supported spindle in resin stabilised Jamaican Fiddlewood and Dymondwood, medium light weight

This Russian-style spindle is a stock item and you will receive an item very similar to the one in these photos. This heirloom quality spinning tool is an original designed and made by Jory Freyee and made under the guidance of master craftsman Malcolm Fielding in the workshop of The SpindleShop.

The spindle shaft is made from Dymondwood for strength, stability and long service life. The spindle tip is made from an insert of hard grade titanium for extreme long life.

This design is very fast and light with an excellent spin and thin flicking tip. The whorl of resin stabilised Jamaican Fiddlewood (from wood grown locally in Queensland) is a pretty shape. The resin stabilising process makes the wood harder and protects against warping or cracking, and adds depth to the finish.

Your spindle is finished to a 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 fine smooth point for long spins. The flicking tip is slender and allows good speeds to be attained with ease. This spindle has a medium to high speed spin, long sustain and excellent balance.

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.

Spindle weight - 28-30 g (about 1- 1.06 oz) approx length about 9.75 in (245 mm)
