The HexWeight & Stainless
The HexWeight & Stainless Thinket® is our heaviest component-bundle-offering, combining the "HexWeight Handle," the "Stainless-Steel Handle," and "The Slider" to tip the scales at a "whopping" 6.8 oz, and all at a special bundle-price!
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 solid Stainless-Steel Handle has an ergonomic shape, electro-polished to smooth, bright silvery finish.
The HexWeight & Stainless Slider comprises two solid-brass GEN 2.5 Slider-Heads plated w/ bright-Nickel on a distressed metal finish, and our precision-ground solid-stainless-steel GEN 2.5 Slider-Tube, all incorporated into a 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.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.
