Thinket® Nano-Baby (Coppertina, Gold & Nickel)
The Thinket® Nano-Baby (Coppertina, Gold & Nickel) is machined from solid Brass for the Heat-Patina-treated Copper-plated Handle (with distressed-metal surface), and #6061 Aluminum for the genuine 24Kt. Gold-plated Slider-Heads (with distressed-metal surface), while the Slider-Tube is made of Nickel-plated solid Brass.
This new Thinket form-factor (the Thinket® Nano-Baby) is the smallest and most compact Thinket version yet, and offers satisfying magnetic haptic effects during use.
Please note that the Heat-treatment "Coppertina" finish-effects differ in appearance from one Thinket Nano-Baby (Coppertina-2, Gold & Nickel) to the next. The various heat-treatment finish effects shown in the pictures for this Thinket are varied, and they reflect an assortment of possible heat-patina finish effects that may occur with this product.
Please note also that the Thinket Nano-Baby Handle & Slider are sold strictly as a unit (not separately), because they're designed to be used together only. And although the Nano-Baby Handle is backwards compatible with other Thinket Slider versions, the Nano-Baby Slider should be used ONLY with the Nano-Baby Handle.
IMPORTANT: Please use the Thinket® Nano-Baby Slider ONLY with the Thinket® Nano-Baby Handle. Any use of the Thinket® Nano-Baby Slider with any Handle-action version other than the Nano-Baby action-Handle is NOT intended, and it is also NOT recommended. * SEE NOTE BELOW!
** NOTE: The Thinket Nano-Baby is a little bit of an oddity, because depending upon how it's used it has different clicking effects that take a little while to get used to.
1) Basically, if the Nano-Baby Slider is clicked slowly and gently through the Nano-Baby Handle, then it gives two short discrete clicks.
2) If the Nano-Baby Slider is clicked just a little bit faster (but still gently) through the Nano-Baby Handle, then it sort of skips through the two discrete clicks and it gives one click that's sort of a "shuffle-click."
3) But then there's a third way of using it where it becomes a two-handed operation, in that if the Nano-Baby Slider is clicked quickly (but not gently) through the Nano-Baby Handle, then it's necessary to hold the palm of your other hand just a couple or a few inches away from the open end of the Handle before you click the Slider so as to catch the Nano-Baby Slider, since then it will shoot out the open end of the Handle into the open palm of your other hand.
If you choose to use the Thinket Nano-Baby in that third manner described above, then it's important to make sure that the open palm of your other hand is waiting to catch the Nano-Baby Slider just a couple or a few inches away from the open end of the Nano-Baby Handle, otherwise the Slider will just shoot-out / fall-out of the open end of the Handle chaotically, which is not the right way to use it, and which is not a desirable or recommended use at all.
