I have received some questions about my Irish 8 handcuffs. There are two types in my collection: the snap shut model and the old fashioned reproduction. What is the difference? Well, what better way to explain than to show it to you, with a little help from my lovely assistant Anahí!! These two handcuffs are totally different. Different keys, different way of closing, different ways of escaping. The only thing that is similar is that they keep the wrists very close together and that they are both lady sized. Yes! Lady sized!!
I think I have done this before, but that was behind my back and I could not escape! This time I will try it in front, using a pair of hinged handcuffs! This means that if I make the classic mistake (keyholes on the inside), I will be stuck forever! So please be extra careful when you try this at home, if you get it wrong no one will be able to help you, you can not get the key in anymore, and you’ll need to go to the fire station to be cut out of your cuffs! That is actually pretty exciting (with all those fire men running around), but it will be a waste of perfectly good cuffs ;-(
So let’s try this and see if I can escape this time!
OUCH! This one seriously hurt! Another brilliant fan suggestion… in theory… Me and Anahi are hogcuffed, but in an even more extreme way than usual: our wrists are crossed behind our backs with a pair of Irish 8’s and our legs are cuffed with ankle cuffs. This means we need two different keys each. The four keys are on the OTHER side of the room (like you always ask for in emails), so me and Anahi will have to get to the keys somehow, and then try to free ourselves. Who will win? Will anyone win??? Carpet burn here we come!!
