Deadeye - Mokuti
Deadeye - MokuTi
Aroundsquare’s Deadeyes are part skill toy, part worry stone, part mind control device. Roll them between your fingers, or press use your thumb into the smooth contour and breath deep to dissolve the stresses of daily life.
These contact coins are designed to be handled and manipulated. 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 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.
Our MokuTi Edition
This incredible edition is precision machined from a solid billet of MokuTi. The material is forged from folded layers of different titanium grades, then precision machined, polished, and torched to create eye-popping colour patterns.
Each piece is quite unique, with its own grain patterns and colour differences. All pieces range from deep purple to blue to grey, and include lighter orange/ gold striping. The photos provided are all unedited, and shot with bright indoor lighting, to give a true depiction of what you’ll be getting. The pieces depicted are quite representative of the range. To accommodate preferences, we have sorted these into pieces that have more of a blue colour range, and those that have more purple. Note that all pieces have a blending of blue and purple, and often, one side is a slightly different colour than the other, so please understand that colour preferences can't be strictly accommodated.. (but you know us, we'll do our best for ya).
The mokuti Deadeyes are only available polished at this time, as this finish maximizes the colour saturation when torched. The polished surface has more grip than sand blasted titanium, which helps with preventing drops with these precious pieces. The finish is durable in normal use, but will eventually show scratches and may fade through repeated contact with other pocket items etc. However, one of the beautiful aspects of this material is that it can be re-finished innumerable times, giving slightly different colours and contrasts each time.
This elegant Deadeye edition may not be for everyone due to its price point, but for those who know what they're getting into, you're bound to cherish this piece. The weight is very similar to the regular titanium model - right around 23.5g (with slight variation due to the blending of layers in the billet).
