Cryptex – From the Da Vinci Code

While searching for Lord of the Rings replicas on Amazon, I came upon a cool gadget from “The Da Vinci Code”. In the novel, a “Cryptex” is a solid cylindrical metal vault used to hide the secret messages of the Holy Grail. The invented name “Cryptex” comes from a combination of 2 words “cryptology” and “codex”.

This evening, I received my “Cryptex” and it came in a very beautiful wooden box (just like the one in the movie). Made of brass metal, the capsule is surprising heavy and it feels solid good in the hand. With 5 rings, each contains 26 alphabet letters, it takes more than 10-million combinations to crack the code. Once you dial the right code, the “Cryptex” springs open. (Finally, I found the right gadget to store all my darkest secrets!) Here is the riddle of the default code: “In London lies a knight A Pope interred. His labor’s fruit a Holy wrath incurred. You seek the orb that ought be on his tomb. It speaks of Rosy flesh and seeded womb.”(Clue: “The Forbidden Fruit”)
