I could be wrong, but I doubt he'll just make one for you. You'd probably have to buy one from somebody who already owns one. And it would probably be around $600 or so? I don't know how much his puzzles are ordinarily sold for.

On DCD 2008 I saw a list that had the Tetrahedron for ~$291, handmade by Anthony.

I have a 3x3x3 Dodecahedron made by Anthony. It looks like factory made and is light (his extra pieces are hollow).
I looks even as if it were made in a high quality factory. I am very satisfied with it and I don't regret the price I paid.

Wow, that seems really low for such a great puzzle. I would've expected something in the $450-$600 range.

Lucky you that you have one

Though, I've never understood the Isis... Can you show a video of how it works? :)


Cheers,
Nikola

The Isis is built around an internal mechanism which you're meant to work out a solution to in order to open it. It's not complicated when you know how to do it, but it's very counter-intuitve. Making it a very hard puzzle in my opinion.
There's clues on the box it comes in and on the sonic warp website which help in working it out.
