    I don't EDC a top, but I have them around the desk for fiddling when I'm taking a work break. My favorite came off of Kickstarter, under the name of SolidSpin. Heavy (brass), with a ruby point. I just checked, and I don't see that they're available anymore. :(

    Brushed brass body top on a titanium stem with a grade 10 Ruby bearing. Recently made by me, and sold as soon as I had listed it LOL

    Such a pity they no longer make these in this configuration
    I'd love one beyond words could convey

    I just ordered a spin base from foreverspin. Came with a "mystery" giftcard, looks like it's for 20$ whoever wants it. you just need to put the code in at checkout. 79990113
    Here's a picture of the base along with my new Trident from Rich Stadler at BilletSpin![​IMG]

    This morning, I contacted Billetspin (on Etsy) about buying a K2 top.
    They got back to me and said they were all sold. [​IMG]
    A little while ago I looked back on Etsy and they had this one for sale? [​IMG]
    SO I BOUGHT IT! [​IMG] Billetspin K2 #27 ss/w/ss stainless steel and flame tungsten
