Knob? What knob?

Gillette man’s custom shifter knobs are sent to customers around the world. “A man from Idaho once sent Roosa a film canister containing then-live ticks that he had pulled off his dog along with several of his own wisdom teeth that a doctor had extracted. He wanted the teeth to be placed in the center of the knob with the ticks surrounding them on various levels—. Other items that Roosa has put in shifter knobs have varied—a squirrel skull, car brand logos and even some ballet slippers for his grown daughter who, as a child, loved to dance.”
