New Pear Whorl Tahkli Drop Spindles

It's been a couple of years since Dave made pear whorl Tahkli drop spindles.   Our previous Tahklis were designed to be used as either a support spindle or a drop spindle, but after several of our loyal patrons asked to have one that was exclusively a drop spindle, Dave was happy to oblige.  The woods used in the pear style whorls of these handspinning tools are spalted golden pheasant wood, Oregon myrtlewood, pau ferro, redheart and Pacific yew.  Additional photos can be seen of all these beautiful drop spindles in our Etsy shop.
