Imagine a top that can spin for ten plus minutes and also doubles as a magnificent piece of art? 

Fiddle Foundry has created just that: a spinning top that (with some practice and a flat surface) will dazzle not only with its spinning prowess, but with its stunning craftsmanship.  

Solid Tellurium copper provides excellent weight and durability for the pocket top, while the hammered texture and forced patina ensure it will continue to age gracefully through years of enjoyment. A swirling knurled top adds both the perfect amount of grip and a final flourish of flair to these beautiful objects.

Individually handcrafted on a manual lathe in Western Massachusetts, these copper spinning tops are the ultimate heirloom fidget toy. 

  • Solid Tellurium copper construction.*
  • Tungsten carbide bearings.
  • With practice, can spin for over ten minutes.
  • Handmade in Massachusetts, USA.

Dimensions: ~1" (diameter)

*Copper will develop a stunning patina over time. Please make sure to read our return policy regarding brass and copper products.

Operation

While our hammered copper spinning tops are designed to spin for very long times, they still take practice and the correct surfaces to do so.

1) Make sure you have a very flat and smooth surface to spin on.

2) Hold the top upright with just your thumb and second finger.

3) Flick your fingers as if you were snapping them. Try not to move any part of your wrist as this will cause the top to tumble over.

4) The faster you can flick your fingers and the more force you can create, the better chances of the top spinning and spinning for longer.

5) After some practice, you'll be spinning longer and longer. Have fun!
