Crafted in solid stainless steel the Kemner Design Two-Step is a precision made spinning top. The top features a bi-level taper design from the base to the stem which sports three distinct knurled rings. The two-step was crafted on a CNC lathe, followed by hand finishing and knurling of the stem on a manual lathe. The top then went through a chemical finishing process that gives it it's blacked out appearance appearance. The satin finish was obtained by gently applying steel wool to the blacked out surface. This is not a paint or a coating, it is a process similar to gun bluing. The spin surface is a precision Si3N4 ceramic bearing.
While spin times will vary with practice and experience, the Two-Step has an average spin time of 4-6 minutes and during performance testing I was able to achieve an spin time of 9.25 minutes on its first spin. 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 Two-Step 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.
*** Because this is a hand applied finish, there will be some variations in the finish***
