Don't know where to start? Looking for the perfect gift? Our beginner's sets are created with you in mind.
For thousands of years spinning tops have emerged in cultures all over the globe, from ancient African whip tops to Japanese fighting koma, but at Vorso we offer something very much made in modern times. Our tops are machined from aerospace grade materials on precision cnc lathes, then hand assembled and finished all in Staffordshire, England.
Made from four separate components the Mk1 is so good, so well made, that it will spin for 8, 10, even 15 minutes. It’s super easy to spin and designed with all ages and proficiencies in mind, featuring a diamond knurled grip to allow the user to impart as much torque as possible and a center of gravity that quickly allows the top to steady and stand perfectly upright with the softest of spins.
Perfectly machined components
Slight brush with mat finish
Stunning mirror finish
The difference between ceramic and ruby is simple. (handy poem)
Rubies are red, ceramics are black, rubies are harder, but ceramic won't crack.
Ceramic, silicon nitride is perfect for the contact point of a spinning top, it has low friction and is extremely round leading to excellent spin times, its super durable and will last a lifetime
Rubies are EXTREMELY hard and EXTREMELY round, they are used in precision probes and the very best watches, they lead to a longer spin times, and will last forever. Many of our customers swear by them and won’t have anything else.
Our EXTREMELY high grade ruby is lab grown.
Now, don't get me wrong, our tops will pretty much spin on anything, a hard desktop or marble kitchen surface is fun for a while, but soon enough if you want to get the best out of your new treasure you are going to need something dedicated and built for the job. Our beginners sets come with our newest innovation, a good for anywhere spin station, the lens kit.
Lens kit includes
- 75mm glass lens (CNC ground to a perfect polished surface)
- suspension band (to absorb shocks)
- Precision cut foam (to damped drops)
- Aluminium housing (the tin ;)

Please note; there maybe imperfections on the edges of the glass lens, however they are individually hand checked to make sure they will function perfectly.
We stand by our products and live by our quality, and as such we offer a lifetime guarantee to repair or replace any of our products in the future, indefinitely. I’m proud to say that out of the thousands of Mk1s that have been made only a handful have ever needed repairs or replacement.
