I got this as a present for my boyfriend (who is a Thompson!) for his graduation. He loved it. The cuff is beautiful and well made.
First off, the quality of the cuff and the overall craftsmanship is top notch. I was looking at this company and others for a month or so before making the purchase, and I am so glad I decided to go with Studebaker. As others said, the Thompson cuff is a thick, solid cuff and the build seems like it will last forever. I could probably use this thing as a weapon and the cuff would walk away undamaged..... it's that durable. The brass patina is a beautiful mixture of dark gold and brown hues. In sunlight it has a soft shine to it but in normal lighting it is a bit darker and subdued. A great masculine look.
If you're between this cuff and others like I was, definitely go with this one. I'm 6'6" and I can't imagine getting any other one than this. Especially if you're a bigger guy, this is the one to go with. The width is similar to military remembrance bracelets, or like the classic Livestrong or WWJD ones silicone ones, etc.
What I don't think is advertised enough is the option to fully engrave the outside and inside of the cuff. I got my daughters' names on the outside and an inspirational quote on the inside. I love that I'll can take a low key reminder of them everywhere I go.
Finally, the customer service was outstanding and definitely a treat compared to other companies I've talked to lately. They will work with you on any customization you want. Two-day FedEx shipping put it over the top. And, small US business support is better than saving $5 on Amazon any day.
Came across this courtesy of the impeccable IG marketing algorithms that know me so well...and know that I'll buy.
This is a well made, solid and durable piece. Holy cow it's heavy. Highly recommend that you measure your wrist before purchasing, this thing has ZERO flex or bend to it just in case you were thinking that you'd have a little wiggle room for error...
I engraved mine and it came out exactly as I expected. Probably will buy another as a gift. Lastly, so glad to be supporting a small business that makes a great artisanal product, you guys rock. Thank you
Bought the Thompson Cuff a couple months ago. I got it with the patina and engraved. Loved it so much a week later I bought Heavyweight.
