This shift knob weighs approximately 520 grams (1.15 pounds). That’s more than 3x the weight of an equivalently sized 6061 aluminum knob and nearly 2x as much as an equivalently sized titanium knob. Each knob starts out as a forged steel blank. The blanks get turned to their spherical shape, and then they are drilled and tapped. Next, each knob has the “hr” logo cut into it on a high-precision 5-axis CNC mill. Finally, each knob gets plated in black nickel for a beautiful, durable finish.
