This is limited edition Tom Kuhn, laser engraved on both sides, using his "Wood Rocks" yoyo as canvas. Only 16 of these were made, making it a super limited edition from Tom Kuhn.

The artwork was developed by Oke Rosgana and myself back in 2007. It was meant as a wedding gift for guests. But Tom Kuhn was out of production, and we could not get these made. The artwork remained buried away on my computer drive until 2013, when we were finally able to make them. The design was meant as a Nordik/Celtic design, sort of representing my family history.

The text reads "Tom Kuhn Custom Yo-yos Nordik" in one of the Runic alphabets I found online. Originally the design was refused because it was said no one could read it and know it was a TK yo-yo. You might notice the tiny TK logo we added at center. Too tiny to make a difference. But rules on custom editions have eased since 2007 apparently.

The Nordik 2 only exists because of an error at the laser engraver. The engraver thought they were running a test run of the Bifrost 2 design, and accidentally loaded the wrong graphic. And not even the standard Nordik, but an older version we decided not to run. The laser was set a a super high resolution too ... notice the tiny but readable logo at center.
