: At last I have a set of McKenzie Mitts. Have waited over 30 years to get them! They are in superb condition and are nickel plated. They are one of the 20 already known and I believe the first pair to find their way out of America.
: So are they the ultimate? Well they are certainly not the rarest handcuffs that exist. For example the Delestatius are probably 4 times rarer, the Spanish Death Penalty cuffs, Old Tower of London Pattern Wedge Lock legirons both 10 times rarer and the Hiatt Plug '8' legirons with 3 start left hand threaded key which Houdini failed to escape from 20 times rarer.
: Well I now think the Mitts are the ultimate - the only pair of handcuffs ever patented and produced which were too good. Their design is unique and unlike any other pattern restraint in existance.
: Would dearly love to hear from some of our newer collectors what they consider the ultimate addition to their collection would be.
