Hey guys, 

So I just recently clean up my drawers, and found what appear to be Buddha boxes.

IMG20200827084159.jpg 

However, the boxes were out scattered, so I couldn't tell which one is which.

I made a video for it:

I believe number 1 (Ace) is the Okito
Number #2 is the Boston
Number #4 was near the Sucker Box plastic bag (so I assume it's the Sucker box)


But #3 and #4 seems like a normal Okito (?)
So where is the Slot Box (?)




edit: Sorry for the Topic typo, should've been Buddha (appreciate if any mod can help edit)

I think the ace is the slot box but I can't tell from the video. Run your fingernail on the inside base of the box. The edge of a coin can fit in there so when you turn the box over one coin is held back.

Thanks Jim! That is it! Ace is the slot, correct! So #3 is the Okito

#4 Sucker box, is just another Okito? I had the assumption that sucker box supposed to be solid box (?)

I think if you check you'll find the coins do not fit in the Sucker Box.

OMG! Thank you marv!

You're absolutely right! So it's this type of sucker. Mystery solved!

Thanks to everyone that have helped!

A sucker box is generally just small enough that coins will not fit.  So in your routine you can switch it out and hand it to the spectator.  You ask them to put the coins inside and of course they cannot.

There is also the "solid box" ending, where you end up with a solid brass plug.  No opening at all.

This is exactly what I thought a sucker box is.

You can use a solid box as a "sucker" box if you want to play it that way.  

Some solid boxes also came with a "lid" on them.  The whole thing was turned out of a solid piece of brass.  To look at it, you'd swear it was the same box as it looked identical.  You pushed it over to the spectator, asking them to please remove the lid and of course they could not.

Pretty sure the sucker box was originally part of the Okorto box routine by my dearly missed friend Milt Kort.

Glad we could help. Some times the solid box is called a plug box.

I think the Buddha box design is one of the most elegant of the Okito style.
