About this project
We're back on Kickstarter. This is where it all started.
After two successful Kickstarter projects, you supported our vision to build what we believe are the world's finest spinning tops and reviving the world's oldest toy. The Kickstarter community responded and thousands of people believed in us before anyone else even knew we existed. You absolutely inspired us with the overwhelming amount support that created a ripple effect creating a worldwide movement and an amazing community that we like to call our “family”.
For those of you new to our community, join us! To us, this is much more than just a project - it’s an opportunity for us to get closer with our backers and fans and we are looking forward to sharing this journey with you!
There is more than meets the eye when it comes to tops. Believe it or not, there is even science that explains how a top can increase creativity, enhance your thought process, educate you, and even make you feel at peace and relax.
We believe it's more simple than science! In a digital world, a “real interaction” matters. Especially a real interaction with real materials, in this case pure solid metals.
Tops make for a great desk companion - perhaps you need a little brainstorming boost after long hours behind your computer or you simply want to de-stress a bit.
Spin a top when with friends, family or coworkers and you’d be surprised as to how much attention spinning tops create! Engage in some friendly competitions to see who is crowned Spin Champion! Best of all, since all of our spinning tops made from the same metal are identical, you can challenge anyone worldwide!
A great original gift - really, when was the last time you thought of a “spinning top” - that is designed to last Forever. We love technology too, but unlike electronics that get replaced every few years, a true piece of art with no buttons, no batteries, no screens will remain valuable and in style forever.
CRAFTED ART AND PURE METALS
Learn about the colors, weights and characteristics of the metals and of our tops! Learning can be both fun and beautiful. Much of our international family just loves finely-crafted art!
STANDARD OF QUALITY AND MANUFACTURING
ForeverSpin™ tops are made in Canada and are CNC-machined on aerospace-grade lathes from one solid piece of metal for ultimate precision and quality. We meticulously check each and every spinning top to ensure that only perfect tops receiving a serial number and carry the ForeverSpin™ seal.
We have been making tops for years and our manufacturing process has continuously evolved in our pursuit of excellence - it is rare to find the level of precision that we achieve in regular everyday objects and you’ll instantly notice the symmetry and texture upon touching our tops for the first time! We actually dedicated a large portion of our research and development to surface finish to improve the overall touch and feel.
A New Experience, Diamond-Like Carbon Spinning Base
We have perfected the spinning tops to a point that there is not much else we can do to make better without compromising their simplicity and beauty. After a lot of R&D, we managed to bring a technology used in the latest Nascar and F1 cars to our desks.
For the first time ever, we have managed to engineer fused silica glass with a diamond-like carbon surface finish to achieve not only an extremely hard surface, but more importantly, the lowest coefficient of friction possible! It is now 16X better than our previous Kickstarter base!
Why is this important? At ForeverSpin, we believe in an overall experience rather than just numbers and we work very hard every day to improve your experience. The experience of spinning a top on the new Forever Base is so much more fulfilling: faster stabilizing, less scratches, and longer spins!
Our New Metals!
Magnesium is the lightest metal in our collection! Half the weight of our lightest spinning top and an incredible 10x lighter than the tungsten top, this metal weighs even less than some plastics! We want the world to experience this ultra-light solid metal. Have you ever held a solid piece of magnesium in one hand and a piece of tungsten in the other? The weight difference is mind-blowing! Aside from the weight, you'll love the color and how playful it is.
Words that describe Magnesium: Nimble - Playful -Ultra light
Dating back to the 3rd century, Damascus steel is fabricated by forging layers of steel together to create beautiful intrinsic patterns of steel. Due to the forging process, the production of this metal is incredibly labour-intensive. The same process makes the metal very hard, making it a favorite in ancient weapon crafting and especially in the production of swords. Since the fabrication of material is done by hand, no two damascus spinning tops are the same, making your damascus top one of a kind.
Words that describe Damascus Steel: Classic - Epic - Lost in Time
An exotic, rare super-metal! In its natural state, zirconium is silvery-grey but creates a natural, beautiful, jet-black oxide layer when heated at high temperatures. This layer makes it incredibly durable and scratch-resistant - its black lustrous finish is very beautiful making this the ultimate black spinning top.
Words that describe Zirconium: Exotic - Rare - Super-metal - Incredibly Hard
Silver: Owning a spinning top made from Solid Silver is something very special. Silver possesses very unique properties such as having the highest electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity and highest reflectivity of any metal. Like all of our spinning tops, we CNC-machined this spinning top from a solid block which requires almost one pound of solid silver per top. Silver has a brilliant white metallic luster, is considered a precious metal, and many times, has served as a form of currency. Solid Silver spinning tops are very rare and we are excited to be offering this to our Kickstarter community!
Regular shipping is included in your pledge unless it states to add $6 for shipping. This covers regular untracked shipping anywhere in the world!.
Other Shipping options such as Tracking Number or Insurance will be offered after the campaign ends for an extra fee (recommended for large or international pledges). The amount will depend on the weight, value of the reward and destination. With backers in over 70 different countries we believe this is the best method, as it allows the backers a higher degree of control over the shipping options, to tailor to their individual needs.
