"Dyavol" - Russian style supported spindle in figured Queensland Maple, York Gum burl and Dymondwood, light weight, titanium tip This heirloom quality spindle is a hand made item, designed and made by Malcolm Fielding and Jory Freyee, in the workshop of TheSpindleshop. None of our products are outsourced. This item is in stock and you will receive the item as shown 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 figured Queensland Maple, a wood which sometimes has exquisite ripple figure, as in this piece. Good quality pieces are highly sought after and expensive. The lower tip is made from York Gum burl from Western Australia. 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 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. A silver pin insert in the whorl perfects the spin and balance of this spindle. Dimensions - spindle length overall approximately 245 mm, (9.75 in), weight 28 grams (1 oz approx). All my spindles are tested before despatch and a sample of our top quality Merino fibre is included free.
