The HexWeight Handle -- a GEN 2.5 component -- is one of the heaviest Thinket Handles ever created at 3.2 oz.
The HexWeight Handle measures 1.5" length by 1.0625" OD, and comprises a precision-machined, solid-Brass GEN 2.5 Hex-shaped Handle-shell (with a tumbled, distressed-metal surface), plated with a layer of lead-free hard-Nickel, then coated with an outer-layer of matte, lead-free Brass-plating.
One appealing aspect of the HexWeight Handle is that the matte-Brass-plated surface shows different finish characteristics in the outer-coating of each Handle created, making every HexWeight Thinket Handle a "one-of-a-kind" piece.
In addition, over-time the surface of each HexWeight Handle will gradually accumulate a "patina" from handling and exposure to finger oils and acids. The Handle can also be lightly hand-waxed and hand-buffed (with a soft, non-abrasive cloth) to amplify the effect.
The HexWeight Handle is Handmade in the USA to fill each order.
The shipping weight of this Thinket version (not the actual weight) is approx 5 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.
