This is the real deal. Not machined as a round check, and then blasted into shape like other hexagonal checks; ours are actually machined from solid bar stock and individually hand polished into a handsome final product, with the best fit and finish you will find anywhere in the industry. For these parts, the mirror polish is the Bright finish (Natural is not available – you wouldn’t like them if we didn’t polish them…too edgy).
To determine the proper hexagonal check size, use the average of the three corner-to-corner measurements and order the same 64th size; order up for any partial size measurements, e.g., 19.2/64 means you need a 20/64 check, unless you want to file out the ID to open up the 19/64 check. Don’t let a tight check constrict your blank. It’s better to pad beneath a slightly large check using a single layer of fine black silk, which will be invisible once you add a short decorative wrap in front of the winding check.
Let us Emphasize: Measure Corner-to-Corner … these are the single most mis-ordered products we sell.
PLEASE ORDER CAREFULLY AS THE SIZE OPTIONS VARY. ALWAYS MEASURE CANE RODS CORNER-TO-CORNER WHEN ORDERING WINDING CHECKS, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THE DESIGN OF THE WINDING CHECK IS CIRCULAR OR HEXAGONAL.
