Borrowing some of the best elements from the Titan and Hydra range, the Everyman Begleri by AroundSquare is "nothing bizarre. It's just normal. It's average. It's the Everyman." This is a great addition to your EDC! Updating the shape of the conventional "Standard Issue" Greek begleri for modern technical begleri play the Everyman Begleri have a few neat features: The sloping top of the beads helps prevent the string from jamming up during rolls, like the rounded tops of the Titans. Like the Hydras, they feature straight angles which help with grip and bead control, as well as a compact size which makes the beads nimble during play. While the beads are relatively small, at 17mm by 17mm, they feel substantial in the hand due to the angles, and carry good weight. The Everyman Heavy Metal series is precision machined from high quality aluminium. The AL Hardcore series is Hardcore Compatible, meaning they have a sufficient internal space to house the beads of the Hardcore Gut System. This allows players to customise the weight of their setup. The AL Hardcore Orange, Blue, and Grey beads weigh in at just 5.0g on their own, meaning most players are going to want to use them with the configurable Hardcore Gut System beads. These sets ship with six Micro Hydras, which fit neatly inside the Everyman casing, giving a total combined weight of 14.9gAluminium is a relatively soft and light metal which will scratch and ding, especially with hard use and drops, though the anodised coating does increase the surface hardness, and will not tarnish or patina with normal use, but they will scratch and wear over time. Each set comes complete with with 2 copper Micro Hydras, 2 brass Micro Hydras, and 2 stainless steel Micro Hydras (6 total)

Born in Greece, Begleri is a small skill toy which consists of one or more beads at either end of a string, rope or chain. They can be flipped, twirled or more around fingers to person visually appealing tricks in a similar manner to how playing cards are manipulated during cardistry. Deriving from from Greek rosary beads (Komboloi) which are often used as worry beads. While komboloi have beads forming a closed circle, begleri beads are threaded on an open strand, usually in a symmetrical formation, with equal weighting at either end. Begleri come in many forms, consisting of semi-precious stone or metal beads.
