The Turas Elite
This Turas is a custom Elite that started life like any other Turas. It was CNC machined, but that’s where the similarity to our production version ends. The Elites are manually turned on our new Precision Matthews manual lathe and given a unique profile, while it might look like other Elites, each is slightly different as no stops are used, the grip is 100% free hand machined, then polished by hand. Each Elite takes many hours of work to complete, there is no quick easy button to push to complete these and they will be far and few between as we go forward and focus on other production processes and growth as a company.
This particular Elite features a 3 color Mokume Gane body that has been satin polished and the flutes were hand rubbed for added contrast. ZircuTi cap with blue flamed finish! Topped with a Blackened zirconium medallion inlay. A truly unique piece that was a lot of fun to make. Keep in mind Mokume Gane is made with copper and will continue to patina over time.
Each Elite includes a set of Wiha bits and a Hard case that has had the foam laser cut here in shop for a custom fit.
