The S2 is Kemner Design's newest top. It is our second generation starter top, giving the KD Starter a well deserved facelift. The S2 is crafted in 6061 Aluminum and features gently rounded curves and two decorative grooves around the outer edge with an easy to grip knurled spindle. It has a 440C hardened stainless steel bearing for it's spin point. A hot pink powder coat was applied to its polished surface to create the bright green color that you see. The S2 was crafted on a CNC lathe followed by hand finishing and knurling of its stem on a manual lathe.
While spin times will vary with practice and experience, the starter has an average spin time of 3-5 minutes and during performance testing I achieved a spin time of 5:46 minutes. All Kemner Design tops are designed, crafted and finished in my shop. I personally test all of the tops for performance prior to shipping them to you. The KD starter comes with a personalized owners card that proudly displays the name of the top, birth date, material and bearing used, serial number and maker’s signature.
Tops can have multiple functions; they can be used for stress relief, educational purposes, display or to play with. Whatever your choice, this top will provide you with hours of enjoyment. These solid metal tops are designed to last many lifetimes and can be passed down from generation to generation.
