HAND TURNED WALNUT Persian meels. Each meel is hand-turned from a single piece of walnut timber by craftsman within a charity organisation that supports over 400 villages in southern India, whom BMF supports. In addition, we donate 10% of production costs to the charity.
These clubs are sourced from solid walnut logs, air-dried by the sun. Air-dried walnut timber is considered greener than kiln-dried as they are dried naturally. They are therefore cheaper, though carry a risk of small cracks appearing, depending on the ambient conditions they are stored in. Small cracks are usually are considered cosmetic and can be easily fixed using wood glue. Should your clubs display excessive splitting, then please let us know if this happens and we can work out a solution. Follow this link for inforation on care and maintenance.
We also supply sapele kiln-dried meels which are slightly longer than our air-dried walnut sets due to different wood densities. They are the more stable of timbers though cost more too.
