Knife Edge Wenge Weaving Shuttle

This listing is for one (1) shuttle.

~7 3/4" - 8" long
~ 2" wide
~ 5/16" thick

About the shuttle:

Great for inkle weaving, tablet weaving/card weaving, back strap weaving and other small detail work. The long side has a beveled knife edge for packing the weft threads in nice and tight.

These shuttles are handmade by me. Each one is hand sanded and sealed with a hand rubbed, close to the grain, urethane finish. I hand polish them for a silky feel when using. Keeping the finish close to the grain helps to deter chipping of the finish and also provides a better feel to the wood.

The photos for this listing are for illustrative purposes only. Each shuttle is one of a kind due to natural variances of the the wood grain and texture. I assure you that I always select the finest woods available so that each is a work of art like no other. I have been crafting fiber working tools for local weavers and friends for over 15 years. Their feedback to me has been that they love how well these work and feel because I put a lot of effort in making sure they are the finest quality shuttles available.

About Wenge:

Wenge (pronounced WHEN-gii or WHEN-ghay) is a dense, durable wood from Central Africa with excellent strength and hardness properties. The grain is straight, with a low natural luster. Wenge heartwood is medium brown, sometimes with a reddish or yellowish hue, with nearly black streaks.
