CypherSafe has a long heritage of creating quality (and we think beautiful) metal products. Our parent company, Numberall has been doing it since 1930. With bitcoin slowly changing people’s time preference, we feel it’s a great time to focus on making artistic, metal items. People can again start to appreciate an item for it’s beauty, and the craftsmanship it took to make it.
Our first attempt is the Bitcoin Reuleaux Triangle. It’s a fusion of engineering, geometry, artisanship, and bitcoin.
It’s overall shape is the Reuleaux Triangle, named after Franz Reuleaux. He was an engineer in the 1800’s who formalized Kinematic Theory, created 100’s of models for engineering students, and made other outstanding contributions to the engineering field.
Of course the obvious nod to bitcoin is front and center with the Bitcoin ₿ logo.
We strived to achieve a beautiful look with the ₿ face textured for an almost diamond coated look. Along with making the ₿ a raised engraving, which creates a beveled edge to enhance the smaller details. All of this is done at different depths to give a nice 3 dimensional look. Finally the border has sunken engraving scroll work.
All of this is done in titanium, which is amazingly light and has a unique metallic color.
We hope you find the Bitcoin Reuleaux Triangle as beautiful as we do!
Here’s a quick video of the machining process.
