Soul Fuel Skill Toys began in May, 2017 and is India's first skill toy company. Their freshman yo-yo offering included three models.

A variation on their "Archaic", the model in this exhibit is the "Tectona". A fixed axle, take-apart design handmade from a single five foot block of the highest quality imported Tanzanian Teak wood. The initial block of wood is turned on a traditional Indian lathe. Then, each yo-yo halve is machined on a manual lathe. The halves are sanded by hand and polished with a custom wax polish that consists of beeswax and three natural oils. The polish not only protects and beautifies the teak wood, it also imparts a pleasing fragrance. A beautiful, balanced yo-yo. Each halve on this model loosely resembles the halves on a Jack Russell Coke yo-yo that has the bulge on the sides. However, in this case, the bulge is reversed.

Each yo-yo came with a handmade, water resistant laminated jute bag, two strings, Soul Fuel stickers, and an extra axle. To my knowledge, these are the first production yo-yos made from teak.
