HORST Dreidel

HORST Dreidel

Each of our limited edition dreidels are precision machined using the same materials, technology, and craftsmanship that goes into our aerospace components.

What is a Dreidel?

dreidel דרײדל or sevivon, is a four-sided spinning top. The game of dreidel is traditionally played during the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah, but can be enjoyed at any time.

The dreidel is a variant of the teetotum, a gambling toy found in many European cultures. Each side of the dreidel has a letter of the Hebrew alphabet: Nun נ‎ Gimel ג He ה‎ Shin ש which together form the abbreviation for Nes Gadol Hayah Sham נס גדול היה which means “a great miracle happened there”.

Our Aerospace Quality Precision Machined Dreidel

Our 74 year-old family business has Jewish roots and the original design was created for a Family Day event. HORST Dreidels are a fun symbol of our capabilities and we manufacture them using several of our key processes: Swiss screw machining, turning, milling, thread rolling, and knurling.

The unique two-piece design is finely balanced and each one is a joy to spin. Our dreidel bodies are made from aluminum, titanium, or stainless steel ground bar stock. They have a milled square and tapped threads. 

The stem is turned from solid ground bar stock and has a drilled-cross hole. The thread is rolled on the same dedicated machines that we form our high strength fasteners. The diamond knurl is rolled on the same equipment that we use to make the highest quality surgical instrument handles. The HORST logo is dot-peen marked in the same way that we identify critical aircraft hardware. 

They are great for every day carry (EDC) and look fantastic on display. The cross-hole allows you to hang them like an ornament.

Each one includes a protective carrying pouch and a serial numbered Certificate of Conformance.
