Ru Tornado Turbine Bead
The Tornado Turbine Beads have been hand-crafted by Ru, of Ru-Titley-Knives, from salvaged RAF Tornado turbines.
Reconnaissance, in it’s simplest form, is about exploring an unknown territory to gain information. This Recon patch represents our willingness to explore and report back on our findings. For many this takes the form of photographs that remind us of our own experiences and inspire others to discover for themselves. For others it serves as a reminder of the boldness it takes to travel to unknown and dangerous places.
Using vintage Navy Photographic Reconnaissance Squad patches as inspiration, the elements have been designed to allow the user to interpret for themselves. The aperture opening of a camera with a compass dial, or the barrel of a gun surrounded by crosshair markings? Whatever they mean for you, the focus is on the great outdoors.
These unique items are made of solid bronze and have been shaped into Ru’s signature mini cog.
Each bead measures 14mm in diameter and is 9mm thick. They are fitted with an eyelet that has a 6mm diameter hole, that will allow two pieces (or a loop) of paracord to be passed through at the same time. They can be easily slipped off your chosen lanyard for adding to your own paracord creations. The true paracord lanyards, handmade by myself, measure 5.5″ and are 16″ when fully unravelled.
