Two 3x3x3 cubes sharing one column of cubies.

This is the godfather of handmade 3x3x3-modifications. In 1981 Tony Fisher (still attending school in that days) created the first sample of these puzzles. Its name was unintentionally given to it by an bystander when Tony first presented his creation to David Singmaster at a games day in 1982. This bystander said: "Oh look, Siamese Cubes".
Although the Siamese was produced by Ideal beginning in 1982 and subsequently by Mefferts (in the late 1990's) it has always been one of the most popular handmade variants for beginners.
The images shown here steem from a sample created by Arnoud Blees.
