- Length - 58"
Weight - 19oz. to 20oz.
Tip width - 13mm
- 1. Tip
- New for 2007, my standard tip will be Kamui Medium (www.kamuitips.com). I always use a black pad between the ferrule and tip.
- 2. Ferrule
- My standard ferrule is old Micarta (picture)-the best ferrule material in the world. The Micarta we have in stock is over 20 years old. Ivory is also available. All Ferrules are drilled, tapped, and capped (picture).
- 3. Shaft
- Special hand selected Hard Rock Maple. Every shaft is hung a minimum of 3 months between cuts. There are 11 cuts to get the shafts to 14mm, and then they hang for at least 6 months. The whole process takes about 4 years.
- 4. Joint Collar
- Linen base phenolic, black or brown.
- 5. Joint Pin
- Brass 3/8"-11. I developed this pin when I started. It is uniquely designed to fit very snug with the threads in the shaft. I machine my own screws.
- 6. Joint
- Flat face, linen base phenolic is standard but Ivory is also available.
- 7. Forearm
- Woods most frequently used are Birdseye Maple, Cocobola, Ebony, Bocote, Purpleheart, and Tulip.
- 8. Points
- In 1998 we started doing re-cut points. They are more time consuming and costly. I am limited on the colors available but re-cut points construction is more solid and the look is awesome.
- 9. Decor Rings
- We make the rings to accent the cue.
- 10. Wrap
- Irish linen or leather.
- 11. Below Wrap
- Below the wrap, the wood will usually match the top of the cue. Inlay work is done by hand with a Dremel and X-Acto knife (picture). Donna Harris does the scrimshaw work (pictures).
- 12. Butt Cap
- Linen base phenolic or Ivory.
