Featuring a curved top edge, the Jeri Brock Woodworks band weaving shuttle is very comfortable in the hand. The edge is plenty sharp for beating down the weft without being so sharp that fine threads are in danger of being cut. It's suitable for tablet, inkle, and backstrap weaving warp-faced bands.
The cut out pattern is a hallmark of all of my handmade fiber tools, and each item is hand cut using a scroll saw from hand drawn original artwork. Not just for aesthetics, the cutouts also provide a useful function. If you have the dropsies like me due to arthritis, loss of dexterity, or an inherited natural grace (Thanks Mom!), you can run the working thread through one of the cutouts after winding to provide a 'weft lock' so that when you do lose your grip on the shuttle, it doesn't unwind as it falls. When you need more weft, simply unwind the warp from the bottom of the shuttle to let out more.
