Second Wind is a handheld scope that is a departure from the usual Knapp scopes at this time. They are plastic with a veneer cover on the sides and a acrylic, donut shaped cell that rotates. There are three different scopes in the series, differentiated by veneer type and a different color palette for the cells of each. The three scopes were named Faith, Hope and Love. They are signed on the bottom acrylic – signed, dated and named – it is mechanically engraved rather than hand etched into the plastic.
The Body is black acrylic. Faith has figured Maple wood veneer, Hope has Bubinga wood veneer, and Love has Zebra wood veneer.
The turning end is a donut shaped, fluid filled object cell. The rotary face of the cell has 4 unique rose engine patterns carved into it. These designs create a foreground image in the mandala with the colors of the hand lampworked glass pieces made by Shelley appearing behind them. Each of the scopes in the series has a different color palette related to the name of the scope. Spring time colors for Hope, primary colors for faith and jewel tones with a touch of red for love.
They have a 2M/5P tapered mirror system.
Note: There was a prototype version of the Hope made with purple plastic rather than black. It was signed Knapp-2012 Hope – prototype.
