Foreverspin Spinning Top - The World's Most Valuable Metal
Foreverspin Humanium Metal Spinning Top - The World's Most Valuable Metal
This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Thu, November 22 2018 4:59 AM UTC +00:00.
Humanium Metal by IM is an award-winning material made of recycled metal from seized illegal firearms. Due to our world class-reputation for quality, we have been trusted to be one of the first companies to collaborate on the Humanium Metal initiative. We decided to put our years of expertise in precision metal manufacturing to create a one-of-a-kind symbol: “a humanium metal spinning top” that you or a loved one will be very proud to own.
A Humanium Metal-based product not only delivers vital financial support to affected individuals and countries, it also carries a strong ethical message.
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 receive 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.
Like all the items in our collection each top is assigned a serial number together with holographic security feature on the box to avoid counterfeits. For this kickstarter campaign we are going a step further by providing a certificate of authenticity and a letter personally signed by one of the company founders.
Thousands of you have been asking for it and it’s finally here! The new and improved ForeverSpin spinning base.
We have completely rethought and redesigned the spinning base. We started by reducing the outer bezel and increased the glass surface by over 70% to allow for more precise spins while also making the design more minimal and elegant. We fine tuned the angle and concave curve of the glass to create a more balanced spin but what really took a while was for our research and development team to re-engineer the silica composition and polishing techniques to reduce friction even further.
Armed violence is a worldwide epidemic and firearms account for more than 1,500 deaths every day. The cost of armed violence also extends beyond the loss of human life and physical harm as there is a great cost to global insecurity estimated at an annual cost of $400 billion.
This global problem affects impoverished and developing countries the hardest, stunting growth and sustainability of such communities. In 2016, IM Swedish Development Partner introduced Humanium Metal by IM as a way to directly combat this problem and bring about global change. Together with the support of consumers and dedicated companies in the private sector, Humanium Metal by IM aims to reduce violence and empower communities to grow and prosper.
In short, Humanium Metal by IM helps communities and proceeds go directly towards providing relief for victims of armed violence and for conflict-torn communities. Please join ForeverSpin by supporting our project to help bring a safer and brighter future.
To celebrate our return to Kickstarter, we've also made our entire collection available at discount from retail prices - our collection is quite exclusive and never goes on discount, so this is the perfect opportunity to expand your collection to experience all metals and finishes.

Our Metal Museum packs are what made us famous around the world! There is a lot of learning and discovery in comparing and contrasting such a variety of metals. All collections are precisely-crafted to include a curated variety of weights, colours and finishes.
Risks and challenges
Our team has spent countless hours working with IM Swedish Development Partner to add the Humanium Metal top into the ForeverSpin collection - with extensive experience on Kickstarter and through years of feedback and support from the community, our team has continuously improved our process and our communications.
We have taken all necessary precautions to ensure a successful project. However, in manufacturing, there's always a risk of delays. We have added some buffer to minimize the risk and we will be in constant contact with our community.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
