The Thinket Now (Black PVD, DLC & Nickel)
The GEN 3.0, Thinket® Now (Black PVD, DLC & Nickel), has a Black PVD coating on solid-Brass for the Handle, a distressed-metal finish on Nickel plated aluminum for the Slider-Heads, and the Slider-Tube is machined from #304 Stainless-Steel w/ a matte Black PVD/DLC coating.
The specially grooved Slider-Heads are designed to accommodate special 15mm O-Rings for cool added haptic effects.
This Thinket form-factor adds a "reassuring-thud" effect to the soothing action called a "satisfying-bounce" that has always been delivered by every Thinket stress-relief device). The "reassuring-thud" effect was the primary motivation behind the most recent Thinket Kickstarter project called ("The Thinket Now, GEN 3.0), which was launched, funded, and successfully fulfilled in 2018.
The special new "thud" sensation is achieved by means of the custom-machined O-Ring grooves in the GEN 3.0 Slider-Heads; and several high-quality O-Rings are included with each Thinket Now for use with those grooves.
* IMPORTANT: Please note that the Black PVD / DLC plating on the special limited production-run Slider-Tube is a diamond-hard, satin-like textured coating, and when in use the Slider-Tube may accumulate a fine translucent Brass residue from the Handle's inner flared #260 Brass Sleeve assembly. That faint residue is similar to a kind of "brass-rubbing" effect, and may be easily removed with a water & soap dampened cotton terry-cloth.
