Please check out the page below and then order via the web form. That will put us in email contact and I can send you a pic of what knobs and grips are in stock in your choice of wood. Each knob is a little different and this seems like the best way to take orders.

Current Stock - June 2017 Store - Shift knobs
The first batch of shift knobs (containing Lignum Vitae, Purple Heart, and Osage Orange) was a success. By far the most popular request was mahogany shifters to complement the OEM NA/NB wood. So that's what we have in June. There's light mahogany and dark mahogany.

NOTE: It is very unlikely that any of these will be a perfect match for YOUR particular shade of wood. Wood ages over time and changes color. But these should complement any OEM wood very nicely. Store - Shift knobs
The above photo SHOULD be a live representation of my current stock. I'm trying to keep it updated.

Each knob/grip requires an email order. Please use the Custom Order Form to claim your shifter.

Shapes and Woods Store - Shift Knob Shapes
Shift knobs are available in two shapes - Teardrop and 911. The Teardrop is inspired by a Japanese shift knob shape (it shifts fast and brings joy). The 911 shape is inspired by the knobs used in the cars of a Porsche builder who sings. Car enthusiasts will likely understand.

All knobs feature an M10x1.25 threading. That means they fit on more than just Miatas. I've got one on my Mazda3 family car as well. It's fantastic. Store - Shift knobs
Each knob is a bit different. Whether it's the color of wood, the final shape, or the addition of stripes and a collar, each one is a bit unique. Because of this, each knob requires an email order. It's the best way to unite a shifter and an owner instead of trying to keep an impersonal order form updated. Store - Shift knobs
Each wood has a different density. Lignum Vitae is so dense that it does not float! A denser wood will result in a heavier shift knob. Note that all are heavier than the OEM wood shifter option.

How It Fits Store - shift
Both the Teardrop and 911 are three inches tall (76mm). They're designed to allow all four fingers to hold the shifter if you so desire. Store - shift
The Teardrop model allows for either thumbs up shifting or palm down shifting. It fits your hand like a dream. Store - shift
The rounded 911 model is meant for palm down shifting. However, you can also get your thumb on top if you want.

Inserts Store - shift inserts
Each knob ships with the domed vinyl insert of your choice. For a few bucks more, I can make a custom one to your specs. The ones pictured are the standard models that are always in stock. Store - shift
Each insert has its own little name to make life easier. Please mention the insert name and color you want when ordering.

Sharka's custom Argentine Lignum Vitae shift knob and brake grip. Store - shift
The green/brown wood wouldn't work well with the white/blue Elanore design, so I made a custom black and chrome insert. Store - shift
I think they call it "Nostalgic Motoring" or something. I just know it's what I like. Store - shift
The Stormtrooper's Guayacan shift knob and brake grip. It matches the basketball interior very nicely. Store - shift
Pretty posh interior for a Stormtrooper, eh?

About the Ordering Process

These shift knobs are not produced by me. Stock may or may not be very high. It's all an experiment to try to get some of these beauties in the hands of more enthusiasts. Please bear with me.
