This is a Hand-made Titanium 3x3x3 Cube which is designed and built by a China puzzle inventor, by hand and simple machine for around 1 year.

We seldom use Titanium for cubes as it is expensive and hard to polish. So far, it is the only one being made in the cubes history. Actually, this is can be record, a hand-made Titanium 3x3x3 cube. This can be the most valuable and limited 3x3x3 cube in your collection cabinet.

If this is the one I think it is, it is very well made. Expensive, but well made. (Matt has a friend....)

BEAU-TEE-FULL!!!!! I'm in love. If the seller would entertain something like monthly payments for a year I'd be seriously tempted to go after this. PM me if that's an option. Only problem... which wouldn't stop me... is I can't read Chinese. I'd have no idea when it was solved. Could someone translate what each face says when solved? Not sure what "Three-character scripture" means.

Carl

P.S. A few questions...

(1) Does this come with 13 edges, 7 face centers, and 9 corners? Looks like that's what I count in one of the pictures above.
(2) Are the cubie proportional? In a few pictures it appears the face centers are larger then the corners.

Thanks for your interest. I shall check with the inventor and update you later.

The photo of the 6 faces are in solved status.
"Three-character scripture" is a kind of Chinese poem, slang, spirit of knowledge, a sentence of 3 words but having high spirit of Chinese knowledge.
For example, 性本善 meansthat the Basic Human Nature is Kindness.
We have an old story to proof this saying. A robber go to a village to rob an old man one day at daytime. When he was a child playing on the mouth of a well and is going to fall down the well soon, he stop his robbery, throw away his weapon and run over to save the child instead. :D

Should be as what you see in the photo, I check with the inventor and update you.

Yes, you are right.
The inventor will provide 1 spare edge, 1 spare face center and 1 spare corner as photo. But, these spare parts do not have Chinese Letters engraved.

Great, you have very good eyes.
The size of the cube is same as Type A IV cubes, detail size as below,
center : 20X20x16 mm
edge : 20X18x18 mm
corner : 18X18X18 mm

Reference Photo as below.
