Copper Hex-Lite & BB Shadow
The Copper Hex-Lite & BB Shadow Thinket® -- a GEN 2.75 and GEN 3.0 version hybrid -- is the first Aluminum Hex-Handle Thinket form-factor to be plated with pure Copper.
The Copper Hex-Lite Handle measures 1.5" length by 1.0625" OD, and comprises a precision-machined, solid-#6061 Aluminum GEN 3.0 Hex-shaped Handle-shell, plated with a layer of lead-free Nickel and then coated with an outer-layer of pure, lead-free Copper.
The Slider of this Thinket measures 2.5" length by .5625" OD, and comprises two of our GEN 3.0 solid #6061 Aluminum Slider-Heads plated with pure lead-free Copper on top of a cool distressed-metal finish, and a precision-ground 304 stainless-steel GEN 3.0 Slider-Tube with a custom "Battle-Black finish all incorporated into a durable, aesthetically-pleasing form-factor.
One appealing aspect of the Copper Hex-Lite Handle is that the Copper plating can patina quite beautifully (both over time and by 'artificial inducement' through various means).
The Copper Hex-Lite & BB Shadow Thinket® is Handmade in the USA to fill each order.
The shipping weight of this Thinket version (not the actual weight) is approx 8 oz to allow for proper support & padding during transit.
