Nice.  One of my first turned tops was koma inspred--It's still a favoriate for the way it feels in hand, but the broad shape made mine ride on the string more than I like.

Yours look good!

It is fantastic how you are making our own collection of tops of the world.

This one could be a koma, there are some shaped that way, but to me it is more a Chinese or Taiwanese top. 
The most common Koma is has a flattened shape:

Good turning, Flavio!
Which wood are they turned from?

I love the idea of a self-made collection of world tops, great thinking! Will definitely take inspiration from this...  ;D
