Ivory and Brass Okito
Set includes a solid
plug box, Boston box,
Slot box, and Okito box.
This is a custom set of 4 half dollar size Coin boxes
with 2 lids. The set consists of a solid plug box, Boston box,
slot box, and Okito box.
These are made of a high grade yellow brass and the finest
(and most expensive) alternative ivory on the market. The
ivory has a beautiful grain, which may not be detectable in
the pictures. The solid brass single piece core of each of
these boxes makes for a marvelously weighted box. They have a
very heavy feel to them and flip over effortlessly, yet the
ivory adds a very soft and quiet feel when handling. I am
impressed with the combination of these qualities.
All the tolerances were kept as tight as possible and the
Okito box was NOT made to accept a shell. This is entirely
possible, but I just like the fact that everything fits
perfectly and each box fits the coins (and lids) exactly the
I made a lot of prototypes for different coin boxes this
summer. I posted some pictures on the Genii board. These
particular ones turned out to be my favorite design, due
solely to the way they handle and feel.
what Ruben Padilla, my first customer to
receive a set of these boxes, says:
I received the boxes yesterday. Where are the
instructions??? How do I work these things???
They're absolutely beautiful. The most attractive
coin boxes I've ever seen. And as pretty as they are,
they feel even better. Smooth, creamy, soft.
Touching these boxes is like touching a woman's
breast. (You're not going to find a better
endorsement than that... :-)
I want you to know that they're not going to sit on a
shelf, hidden from everybody's sight except the guy who bought them. I plan to use them, they will be
lovingly performed with, and I know will draw the admiration from all my audiences. I'm now the owner
of a true work of art, and I appreciate it."
