Hi I was interested in buying a himber ring. I don't want to get another cheap gimmick so I was wondering what would be the best brand from those who have one? Thanks!

If you want an innie, thats Joe Porper (and I think hes the only innie out there):

The price includes a gaffed pencil as well, for a visual unlink.

For outies, Stevens Magic has several styles (lady's, signet, with regular duplicates etc. Enter Himber Ring in the search engine):

Here is another possibility, with a different look than a traditional Himber Ring.

I don't own one myself, but have handled these in person recently, and they are very nice.

Max Krause(the owner/creator of this ring version) has also been excellent to deal with on some other items I acquired from him.

That is an unusual looking ring; Ive never seen anything like it (real or otherwise). Of course, isnt part of the secret of the Linking Finger Rings having a gaff that doesnt call attention to itself? Im sure its a well-made ring and its style certainly stands out; and the latter is why I would never consider using it. But thats obviously a personal preference/opinion.

Kinda tough to slide the borrowed rings off the pencil and not have folks notice a distinctive ring.

Thank you so much for the information. The routine I will be using is from the first DVD in Richard Osterlind's Mind Mysteries series. I don't know of any other good routines but I thought his was pretty darn good.
