2) Two of our GEN 2.5, solid Brass Slider-Heads plated with bright-Nickel on top of a cool distressed-metal finish.

The Hard-Ano Shadow Thinket® comes in an attractive drawstring-pouch for easy storage & transport.
The Hard-Ano Shadow is Handmade in the USA to fill each order.
* NOTE: Please be aware that aluminum is a somewhat softer metal prior to being hard-anodized than it is once that process has been completed.
Because of this, small surface-anomalies such as tiny indentations that were present in the metal prior to anodizing may be visible in the surface coating of your Hard-Ano Shadow Handle (upon close-inspection in bright light).
The shipping weight of this Thinket version (not the actual weight) is approx 8 oz to allow for proper support & padding during transit.
PLEASE NOTE: All Thinket and ChessMate products are handmade to fill each customer order, and there is a workshop queue by order-date.
