Handcrafted in a family-owned metal shop in Joshua Tree, California,  J.L. Lawson & Co’s tops are skillfully made from solid metal. The standard or EDC designs come in one’s choice of brass or copper and are weighted with a Tungsten carbide ball in the dip. The material is then polished so that it shines as well as it spins. Great as collector’s items and gifts, the tops are both beautiful objects and engaging toys. Each piece comes in either a wooden display case or a stamped leather pouch. The handsome designs are available online from J.L. Lawson & Co. If you need more convincing to check them out, peek behind the scenes and admire a 9:18 spin on Vimeo.
