Tom Kuhn No Jive (Model F) - Mandala 1
Exhibit #3959

OwnerRick Brough

A special release of the Tom Kuhn No Jive Mandala 1 (aka Sunburst), with the laser carved design on the concave or FLAT side and configured in the Flying Camel shape. Same design is laser carved on both sides.

The original No Jive Mandalas, of which three different designs exist, were typically made only in the Model C shape with the laser carving on the convex side, exclusively. The model in this exhibit, however, was the only Mandala design laser carved on the flat side. Approximately 200 were run of this concave Mandala. Of course, the yo-yo still used the takeapart design and replaceable axle system that the 3-in-1 No Jive yo-yo is famous for. This model is challenging to find.
