HexWeight & Stainless
The HexWeight & Stainless Thinket® is the heaviest Thinket we've created yet, tipping the scales at a "massive" 5.3+ oz (followed closely by the "HexWeight Thinket" at 4.9+ oz).
The HexWeight & Stainless Thinket® is hand-built using a precision-machined, solid-Brass GEN 2.5 Hex-shaped Handle (with a tumbled, distressed-metal surface) plated with a layer of lead-free hard-Nickel, followed by an outer coating of matte, lead-free Brass-plating).
The HexWeight & Stainless Thinket® has two electro-polished, solid-Stainless-Steel GEN 2.5 Slider-Heads, and our precision-ground solid-Brass GEN 2.5 Slider-Tube (with a Black PVD/DLC coating on top of a plated hard-Nickel layer), all incorporated into a new, durable and aesthetically-pleasing form-factor.
One appealing aspect of the HexWeight & Stainless Thinket is that the matte-Brass-plated surface shows different finish characteristics in the outer-coating of each Handle created, making every HexWeight & Stainless Thinket 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 may also be lightly hand-waxed and hand-buffed (with a soft, non-abrasive cloth) to amplify the effect.
For a very limited time, the HexWeight & Stainless Thinket comes bundled with these optional accessories at no added charge: The "OverThinket Snap-Case," and a set of 4 EPDM-Rubber O-Rings (which are sized to fit the grooves machined into the HexWeight Handle, in order to provide an "extra-grippy-texture" during use).The HexWeight & Stainless Thinket® is Handmade in the USA to fill each order.
The shipping weight of this Thinket version (not the actual weight) is approx 11 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.
