"I just wanted to let you all know that I bought labyrinth stones for my teammates here at work after we all had a rough couple of months. The labyrinth has been used as a meditation tool throughout our diocese and I thought they all would enjoy having a portable one. They were a huge hit! I’m so glad to have found you through facebook and I will be keeping an eye on what you bring out down the road."


"You may not ever read this but I felt compelled to let you know that I read each of your notes and adore your products. I've only purchased two in the past, one for each of my boys, but dig your designs and look forward to seeing your new products."


"Just a quick note to say I appreciate your work! My desk is slowly being overtaken by JL Lawson items, and while I give the tops a go every so often, my slide clicker (I forget the actual name) and old "center spin" spinner are well-loved and used daily."


"My order has just arrived and I just wanted to tell you how much I already love my 'Pops top'. I’m hooked, and more importantly it’s exactly what I wanted for an heirloom for the kids. I just wanted you to know that your dads top and the beautiful work he and now you have put into it, is now going to looked at as a memory of another dad by a whole new generation thousands of miles away, so thank you for sharing that with me and my family."


"Just wanted to pop my head in and say thank you not only for the fantastic communication each week with your email list, but the care you put into all of your goods. I've purchased a couple of items from you and been gifted some as well from my mother and they're all items that I care for equally as much as handed-down heirlooms that I enjoy regularly. Your family clearly has a gift instilled in you all that's just incredibly admirable, and I just find so much joy in the products you make."


"While the True North Spin Coin is pretty fantastic, the Resolution Box is more than I imagined it could be:  small, inanimate and absolutely fascinating.  Profound thanks to you and your inspiring father."


"This is the perfect f@#king pen"


(in response to his custom wedding ring)"ITS PERFECT BRO!! It’s so so so so sweet. I love it. This mf is the baddest, slap slappiest, most awesome ring ever. Fits snug but not too snug. It’s great. It’s BEAST but a Refined beast. It’s awesome."

"Just wanted to thank you for the awesome grab bag prior to shutting down. Rare to find such quality and character in this environment."

"I wanted to drop a note to tell you how absolutely delighted I was when I opened the mystery box I received today. I love everything I’ve ever purchased from you, but this one is near the top of my list.

Thanks so much for making such beautiful things! I hope you and yours are keeping well during the crisis we’re all enduring."

"I'm blown away by the Mystery Box. I love it. I can't wait to find out what's going to turn up to go in it -- I'm not going to force it, something's going to jump out and ask to be it.

The fit, the action, the finish & the WEIGHT are all perfect. I wouldn't mind if the logo were bigger or if it had a number stamped on the bottom, but those are inconsequential quibbles. Excellent work. Good job."

"You have exceeded expectations.  Very sly style, deco in detail miniaturized.
This Mystery Box is a masterwork and, like your other pieces, will be a heritage family piece."

"I just wanted to take a moment to send you a note of appreciation for the joy I experienced just now on opening all the lovely pieces I received today.  After my third or fourth “aaahh!!” I knew I needed to send you a thank you of my own.    I ordered some things as gifts for my son and some things to treat myself.  The pieces of course are so great- but the detail of the box for the ring, the thank you notes, all the options of the string for the begleri,  the carry case for the yo-yo, which I had to immediately try- wow- so smooth!! You are so generous in adding all these other elements that make it all so fun..."

"I received the coin yesterday and was pleasantly surprised that you were able to find and send the very same one from the picture!  It’s absolutely beautiful and exceeded my expectations.  Before finding yours, I had purchased two other coins from a different artist. The first one was copper and brass but didn’t quite have the wow factor I was looking for. So I ordered a second one in mokume but it was a bit on the thick and heavy side. 

Needless to say your coin hit all the right marks.  I love the garland and skull details with the subtle logo on the flat side.  The concave teardrop pattern is soothing to touch and to behold. It’s the perfect size and weight with a great quote tying its functionality together. This coin will be my constant companion. 

I appreciate your excellent customer service and look forward to future purchases."

"I don't remember exactly how I was first introduced to J.L. Lawson & Co, but the impact you and your company have had on my family is profound.

I think it was perhaps four or five years ago when my mom (as she does annually) asked me what I wanted for Christmas.  Being a grown adult, I try to ask for very little, and ensure what I do request is meaningful.  This being the case, I sent her a link to your site and basically said, everything on here is awesome, so you can't go wrong. 
Christmas morning, my dad, brother and I all found small black leather bags at the bottom of our stockings with tops in them. I was probably the most excited, because I had coveted a top for a while and loved the unique story behind their handmade creation.  But, the real surprise was my dad.  This is a guy who's expression opening gifts on Christmas morning matches his expression on tax day. But this year, he was damn near captivated.  He loved the top and proudly displayed it on his dresser. 
Well, that's where it started. Every year since, we have been gifted some JL Lawson & Co. item each Christmas morning.  Tops, coins, games, the original spin tray...all of these have found their way into our family's homes. And every year, it is the prized possession for each of us.  
I know these small collectibles will outlast generations and be passed down throughout our family. So, for all of this, I just wanted to say thank you.  You inspired a tradition in our family, and I am very grateful. 
Keep up the incredible work, and I look forward to all your creations to come."

"All perfect. The delivery information and the speed in arriving in Spain. I am a great fan of lighthouses and I loved it. I'll take it with me always. The coin is simply gorgeous. Very, very pretty. Congratulations for your work."

"I just wanted to say thank you for the amazing service, handsome work, and the decision coin. This is the second product I have from you. I was given the decision coin as a gift from my wife after coming across your company randomly. I always have it with me and always get asked where I got it from. I will continue to promote your company and cherish your products."


"Hello! I received my Event Horizon coin yesterday and it's fantastic. The quality of the workmanship is beautiful and the spin time is incredible! I just wanted to give you a big thank you for your service and care."


"Package was received and I absolutely love the workmanship and aesthetic of these tops. Many thanks!"


"The new brass (stunt) top arrived and I am tossing it all over the living room. Yoshimi, my cat, thinks it’s awesome.  I think you should make a game like curling or shuffleboard for these, you can really chuck them!"


"The titanium Centre Spin is sublime. The more I play with it, the more I appreciate it.  The more I appreciate it, the fonder I feel about it.  Thanks so much for your authentic vision and expert implementation."


"I'm just shooting you this message from Luxembourg to tell you how much I appreciate your work.  The metal top collection that decorates my desk wouldn't be the same without you.  So thank you very much for the quality and craftsmanship."


"My True North spin coin finally made its way through customs today. Colour me seriously impressed! A fantastic piece of work. So too is the copper ‘standard’ spin coin I got through Huckberry.com. Many thanks for crafting these fantastic little pieces—I’m very happy with both!"


"Received my spinner today. Craftsmanship was GREAT and felt good to hold. My first spin was 3.42 minutes. I'm 65 years old and this is the first top I've had since I was a child. I forgot how magical they are."


"I just got my order, and as always with you guys, everything is exactly as I hoped for. You do make some spectacular items.

This time you also included a copper bead and an apology for the package being late. I appreciate the apology, and I love the bead. I have actually been looking for a copper bead for the last few weeks and have not found one I really liked. The one you sent me is just what I have been looking for.  Thank you so much. You have more than made up for the minor delay in shipment."


"It's obvious I love your stuff, but I very much appreciate the notes of, well, appreciation and the extras you included.  Opening everything with my son was a blast (gave him the extras which he adored).  Keep up the excellent work...and thanks!"


"Just wanted to say how much I love this true north coin-- it's my first coin and I'm loving it! Going to be edc this one for some time to come! Great work and thanks!"


"I just received my second top today. It is magnificent ! Thank you very much for your perfect work. I hope soon to buy you an other one."


"I received my top in the mail today and I was still able to get an 8:50 spin time with my pretty mediocre spin skill!  Hardly any hula hooping at all, and the top quickly found its center and became rock steady.  I can tell that this is going to be a pretty fantastic spinner!  And let's not forget...this top is beautiful.  I love the somewhat rustic look of the copper surrounding the satin titanium stem.  You've done an awesome job with this top, Anthony!  I love it!"


"Just wanted to let you know that both tops arrived today and they are AWESOME!  The craftsmanship is impeccable.  Thanks again for the quick shipping."


"Got The Copper Top today, and Michelle loves it Bro!!! First cell phone test spin.....8 minutes!"


"I just received my order and could not be happier with the quality and beauty of the wonderful tops.
I will be a repeat customer."


"I just wanted to thank you for the outstanding tops! Especially the Copper Top | 5-205 LE, the craftsmanship is stellar and I get easy 10 minute spins out of it. Looking forward to acquire more in the future."


"Here at DreamWorks Animation, brainstorming meetings never seem to get started without a few spins of a Lawson top!  Currently, I’m hammering out the beats of a new movie with a great creative team, and we sit around the table spinning ideas and tops."

Tim J.

"Thanks for the fantastic product. I look forward to many years of functionality and will certainly be showing it to my friends."


"I received the new top yesterday.  You have outdone yourself.  The multi-material tops take your work to the next level.  The traditional tops are wonderfully designed and produced.  However, the use of multiple materials gives the new tops a more artsy feel - almost like jewelry or sculpture."


"The top is beautiful. I have already gotten an 8:23 just spinning it on a CD case.
Thank you very much. I love both of the items and plan to get more for gifts, etc in the future."


"Got the bronze top yesterday.  It's a beauty!
I love the color, weight, and machining which is styled very differently from the more standard tops."


"I didn't take a video, so I suppose I have no way to prove it besides my word, but I just got 11:24 (!!) with my Brass 4-803 LE purchased from Huckberry. Some of my buddies were giving me a hard time for spending so much on a tiny little top, but once they saw that spin I smiled as they fought to be the next to give it a go. Beautiful craftsmanship, cheers. "


"I'm about to make another order for the Minis and wanted to take a very brief moment to share my appreciation for your work.  Looking forward to receiving my spin tray, and whatever else may follow."


"You might find the back story for this Christmas present for my husband amusing....when we first started seeing each other, he bitched and moaned about the cheap corkscrew I used.  So that Christmas and everyone thereafter he has received a new and different corkscrew for Christmas.  After a while it is getting more and more difficult to find new ones.  Yours will be the 20th anniversary edition.  Very special.  Thanks. "


"The EDC top I ordered arrived today. I'm totally entranced. Absolutely brilliant workmanship, it looks like a work of art. Spins for >5 minutes on my first try.
I made the purchase on a whim and I'm way more pleased than I expected to be. Worth every dollar.
I just want to wish you and your family the very best, I'm proud to own something of this quality."


"I just wanted to let you know that I received my EDC top yesterday. It is just lovely and well worth the wait. Thanks so much for the hard work and quality you bring to your project. The little leather bag is a very nice touch as well."


"Tremendous! Just received my Brass 142.514 - Limited Edition. It is a work of art.  And, you're right: this is now a family heirloom.  I look forward to opening many fine beers with this opener now, and in five years when my son turns 21.  Thank you for your attention to detail and the advancement of the American spirit. I can't wait until your next innovation that I cannot live without..."


"I am a surgeon and am giving your tops to my partners as a symbol of quality and durability.  I’m so impressed by the precision work that you do - thanks for that."


"Hey guys, just received my keychain in the mail and I absolutely love it. The entire experience, from ordering, to the packaging, was fantastic. I will absolutely recommend this brand and thanks so much for a great product!"


"I received the letter opener today, and I just wanted to tell you how pleased I am. Really exceeded my expectations. An heirloom piece."


"Just wanted to say a huge thank you for everything! I got the package in perfect time and the pieces were perfect!!"


"Thank you once again for your rapid and excellent customer service, as if I needed another reason to be impressed with the Lawson brand."


"Absolutely love it, it's amazing, beautiful, cool, perfect, a real piece of art, awesome (referring to custom top). You could not have made me more happy, thank you for that."


"You guys keep up the good work and I appreciate your customer service. I get a lot of compliments on my JL stuff and tell them you guys can't be beat!"


"Thanks very much. You have one of those rare storefronts where I want one of everything - looking forward to it."


"Thanks for your awesome service.  I'll pass the word"


"My mum received her gift and was delighted... when I suggested to turn over the base, she noticed the personalized message and become quite emotional - and almost cried.  It was a very touching moment - thank you!"


"The kind of work J.L.Lawson does is absolutely unique! Understanding the complexity of metalwork when the metal is melted is one thing.  Understanding how to actually cut through solid brass and steel to create the elegant curves and shapes that Floyd & Anthony create in their work is nothing short of astonishing. When the cufflinks I ordered arrived they were even more beautiful than the pictures. This work is  sculpture of the highest order and I can't wait to  order more!" 

Marla Aaron


"Just got my order today, surpassed my expectations! Great work!"


"Hi! I received my new opener...all I can say is, "WOW!" It truly is amazing. I saw the specs, but didn't think about them too much. I've actually been looking at a couple, including the Mini and Sequel. I'm amazed at the thickness. You truly made the bottle opener a piece of art. I don't think I can actually use it - I don't want to damage it."


“Hey Anthony! The EDC top you sent is a crazy spinner! Having a spinning contest at the family gathering.  Regularly goes over 3″ on a good spin and we’ve had one 4:55″ and one spectacular 5:16″!! God’s honest truth!  Thanks to you guys for making such swell tops!”

L and family

“Just wanted to let you know that we are all enjoying the tops and we may have a new record for you.  We actually got one to spin for 3:45 minutes!  We continue to try “top” 4 minutes, but thus far have not been able to do so.  We’re having fun trying.  I’ll keep you posted.”


“The top is for my 86 year old mother who has quite the top collection. I have been buying her artistic lathe turned wood tops for years, but this will be her first turned brass one. Can’t wait to see it and try it.”


“I’ve recently acquired my first top from your shop, and am delighted with what I got from the grab bag! I can only barely hold off from buying another one.”


“Great work you’re doing! Even better that you get to share the experience with your father. My dad passed away a few months ago. We also shared several hours in the shop together building hot rods and custom built motorized bicycles. The top is for my nephew that will be going into the Marines this January. It’s meant to be an heirloom that represents the three generations of my father, nephew and myself, hence why I picked the three tier design.”


“Wanted to let you know the order came out perfectly and the openers are a big hit with the guys (groomsmen).  Thank you very much for your hard work and attention to detail. Wish you all the best”


“Just wanted to thank you for your updates and communication! I received the piece and its fantastic! I’m incredibly satisfied and the wait was more than worth it! Again, thanks for everything!”

Alberto A

“The service & personability of your company set it apart from every company I’ve encountered before…this is how businesses used to be run.  Every aspect of J. L. Lawson & Co. strikes me as modern, yet classic and definitely timeless.”

Nathan B.

“I received my order yesterday, THANK YOU!!! These are some very interesting items, I love them! Thanks for keeping me in the loop on the process!”


“I just received the Incognito keychain bottle opener from the Cool Material website and I am very impressed with your work.  Very nice!  I was so impressed that I ordered the Sequel on your site as well.  Thank you for a very nice product that is going to see quite a bit of use!  I am looking forward to seeing the Sequel!”

Take care,
