Project Tomahawk Material



The Tomahawk material is a thermoset/thermoplastic that was originally introduced to the cuemaking world by Joe Pacino in the spring of 2016. Prior to public sales, it was field tested with superb results by Bob Dzuricky. I took over all sales of the material in August of 2017. The four main advantages of this material as a ferrule are:

  • It is very impact resistant. It has held up to breaking and jumping as uncapped with a 3/8" tenon.
  • It is very lightweight (good for LD shaft designs). See a weight comparison here.
  • It is a pleasing white that is impervious to chalk, has no weave, has no pitting.
  • The hit is solid, but neutral. Not soft nor pingy/hard...it lets the tip and shaft do the talking.

Here is the original AZBilliards thread where the ferrule material was introduced. The attention the material recieved speaks for itself. Here is a post made by Bob Dzuricky regarding the field testing and his general impressions of its use as a ferrule. Please take note of his specific machining recommendations. To further address that, here is a machining video Bob made.

The smallest diameter this material is available in is 3/4". The 9/16" diameter rod below is turned by me as a service in case dealing with the smaller diameter is worth the extra charge. If there is sufficient demand, I may do the same thing with the 1.5" butt sized rod to allow those with 1 3/8" through holes to work with the material.

The prices for the 1 foot lengths are all flat rate shipped. If you require the longest rod possible, contact me for availability. Otherwise, an order of 3 feet may result in one 3 foot rod or three 1 foot rods, depending on current inventory.

When purchasing individual 1" long blanks, note after you log in to paypal there will be an option for either $4 economy shipping, or $7.50 priority shipping. If you purchase both white and black 1" blanks or multiple size blacks at the same time and they will all fit in one first class package/flat rate box, I will refund you any additional shipping charges.

Feel free to contact me with any questions or specific requests.
