From Yashica and Minolta cameras, to rotary telephones, to microscopes, Fisk paints monochromatic vintage gadgets and technology for private collections and corporation boardrooms. Check out the rest of the collection on Fisk’s website.

Not only will you come to understand the inner workings of a lock, but you’ll gain the skills necessary to pick one with ease. And don’t worry, there are keys included in case you get frustrated.
