A gorgeous, superbly made yo-yo with excellent identification engraved on one halve. Next to Turning Point's "Counter-Jet" yo-yo, this Tom Kuhn model was also the sleeper of 2017. The Black Cat was machined by CYYC (Chico Yo-Yo Company) out of Chico, California. Compare the rim engraving of this model with the rim engraving of CYYC's Bull Dog 225.
