Kulak is a Turkish word for the small leather tab often inserted between the pad of the thumb, ring aperture, and bow string. It can be used to adjust fit, and increases comfort. Our Kulak is laser cut for precise consistent sizes on it's complex shape. While it obviously pairs well with our Ottoman ring, it can also be a great addition to any of our other rings, the Manchu excluded. We offer them in three sizes: small, medium, and large. Which size you want depends in part on how large your thumb is, but also how loose your ring is as larger ones take up more space making for a snugger fit.
Installation is as simple as aligning the pad inside the ring, gluing it in place, and trimming any excess with a sharp knife. We recommend a quality cyanoacrylate adhesive. The taper around the waist of our Kulak design allows for minor adjustment of fit to be achieved, having more or less leather incorporated into the ring's aperture. They are made from a soft leather approximately 1.5 millimeters thick.
