Deadeye Wearables - Titanium
The Deadeye wearables are a pendant version of the Deadeye contact coins. These feature a small hole in the centre, allowing them to be strung up and worn around the neck, from the belt loop, attached to a keyring etc. They feature the same shape and size as the original Deadeye coins, and play just as well. The wearables ship with an ample cut of black waxed braided cotton cord—our recommended product for stringing them up. They are available in two sizes, and three finishes: mirror polished, sand blasted, and torched/ flame anodized.
*NOTE: On the sand blasted models, there are apparent machining lines. These are visible upon inspection, but only slightly perceptible to the touch (if at all). These ridges do not detract from the play, but they will be noticeable upon inspection. If you are looking for something that is completely free of blemishes, then the mirror polished pieces have you covered.
*NOTE: On the torched/ flame anodized models, there are minor surface blemishes.
The colours are very well saturated and the finish is very clean, but due to minor anomalies like dust and moisture during the flame anodizing process, there are small irregularities in the colouration across the surface and edges of these pieces. As above, if you're looking for something completely free of blemishes, the mirror polished pieces are for you. All pieces are primarily blue/purple, but may have golden hues depending on the viewing angle and lighting.
General Info on the Deadeye Contact Coins
Aroundsquare’s Deadeyes are our first entry into the world of currency manipulation, and we’ve put a lot of time and effort into the refinement of this design, and the development of possibilities surrounding it. We’ve started calling these “contact coins” because they lend themselves to a style of manipulation that resembles contact juggling. On the surface, the Deadeyes look like just a refined worry stone made from metal, and they certainly serve well for that. They are precisely crafted and beautifully finished, with an ergonomic indent on either side that is perfect for thumbs of any size.
But as you’d expect from AO2, there’s more to it than that. The concave shape and resulting ridge around the perimeter make the Deadeyes perfect for contact-style manipulation. With practice, they coins can be made to roll fluidly between the fingers, or back and forth over the thumbs, and isolations can be performed where the coins appear to be floating around the fingertips.
The Deadeyes are available in two sizes, and assorted metals. The large size is 37mm in diameters, and the small one is 30mm in diameter. They both play well and feel great in the hand, but the large feels much more substantial and is more stable when performing contact-style manipulation, while the small is much closer to the half-dollar size preferred by many magicians. Titanium models are available in mirror polished or sandblasted.
All Deadeyes are packaged in a box only at this time. Future releases may add additional packaging elements, different finishes, and laser etching.
