    Ok Tacoma Brothers- This Forum was my inspiration to design something in the automotive world so this is the 1st place we are introducing our newest product the "Rose" Cast Bronze, 100% Made in USA, Shift Knob and I wanted to get your take on it. They are more expensive then plastic and resin but when you hand cast bronze and hand finish a work of art it tends to get that way.

    *Post was approved by staff

    To show our appreciation we will pick (10) random posts from 1st (50) for a Schmuckatelli Co. T-shirts or Zipper Pulls all 100% Made in the USA.

    Following our standard blurb:

    Just pop the clutch and roll…

    This is not your typical shift knob made of resin or some mysterious pot metal slapped together in a sweat shop in a third world country using questionable methods.

    No, this is a pure work of art for your vehicle, be it your daily driver, weekend hot rod or show car and it is 100% made in the USA.

    Our shift knobs are stunning, hand crafted, and artisan finished heirloom quality pieces of automotive excellence that will outlive your grandchildren.

    These handcrafted pieces have been strategically lightened and come with inserts to adapt to virtually every make and model of car or truck on the market.

    Each shift knob is made via a lost wax casting process resulting in a hollow bronze casting with an oil-rubbed finish

    This heirloom quality finish is protected by a clear coating but will develop its own unique and rich patina over time. It will look nicer years from now than it did the day you got it by developing a personality all its own.

    Each one ships in a soft cloth bag that acts as a sun protector to keep your shifter from heating up in a locked vehicle on hot Summer days.

    Our shift knob is more than just a car part. Each one is a unique piece of art. Every time you shift out of park or neutral you will be reminded that you’re cruising in a one-of-a-kind ride.
