Wildcat: Stainless Steel Metric Concave Taper

Wildcat: Stainless Steel Metric Concave Taper

Wildcat metric concave tapers are made from 316L stainless steel and are ideal for stretching up with any metric body jewelry. All glass, organic, and Wildcat brand body jewelry is measured in metric. These tapers have a deep concave in the end and are slightly larger (.3mm-.5mm) than the stated gauge. For example, a 10mm tribal dream ring fits snugly in the 10mm taper. They're about 3.5 inches long. The 7mm taper is ideal for stretching from 2g to 1g (which is 7mm) to avoid the big stretch from 2g to 0g.

GAUGE REFERENCE

The gauge is the thickness of the jewelry (Usually the thickness of the material the jewelry is made from but may also be the diameter of a plug or eyelet).  From 20 gauge to 00 gauge, the smaller the number is, the thicker the jewelry is. After 00 gauge, the diameter of body jewelry is usually measured in fractional inches as shown below; however, some manufacturers make 000 gauge and 0000 gauge jewelry.

Millimeters are rounded to the first decimal.

These are the best tapers I have ever encountered!

Flawless finish.

Perfectly tapers. High mirror polish with zero imperfections. Perfect length to transition to gauge of choice stretching up. By far one of my favorite brands of taper to use for moving up. Would recommend these to anyone. Thanks Steel Navel for great products like these tapers.

This taper made the stretch to 1g easy. I will go for the next size up. It seems to be a little longer that the I.S. taper and the extra couple of centimeters makes a huge difference.

What an excellent product. The 6g gorilla glass color front plugs I planned on stretching with fit very neatly into the concave end of this taper. I bought it because of the other great reviews and I agree with them all!

However, it always seems like if I actually need a taper to stretch a piercing, my piercing wasn't really ready for the stretch in the first place. This is an excellent route if you've enjoyed tapers in the past, it just didn't really do the job for me. Or rather, use your brain while stretching, just because you use a really great quality taper doesn't mean the stretch will work seamlessly!

Nicen long makes for an easy septum stretch. Will purchase again for future stretches.

Also, the concave backing that allows a tunnel to be placed in the taper about 2.5-3.5 mm is really convenient.

Review by Rodger
Wow! This is an awesome taper. Its over 10cms long, which is longer than IS brand ones! The this end is only 1mm smaller too, so that means its a very very gradual taper. It has a nice concave end too. The finish seems pretty well polished too. I would definitely recommend this taper!
