Well, the box is just awesome. It is too awesome! But when you open it, the design isn't the best one ever.
However, they handle really well so if you like what you see in the pictures, order a brick (or two) and you won't be disappointed.

The box looks great, but mine wasn't embossed at all, and after a couple of weeks I could already see very wel that I had used them, even though I had only used them a couple of times. The cards handle great, and they look great too! The backs are amazing, so detailed and well designed- people complained about the white spaces, but that's actually what I love about it. It's a detailed and dark back design, with just the right amount of white in it. Same goes for the Ace of Spades. The red of the pips is just a bit lighter that the red that is used in normal Bycicle cards, but the court cards themselves look just the same. The card handling is awesome- this is a great deck for springs and fans.
Another thing that I love about it: if you look at the bolts in teh corners of the cards, you can see that the design is actually asymmetrical. This comes in handy for magicians as it's almost invisible!
Conclusion: the Steampunks are definitely a nice deck to add to your collection or to just use for performing magic tricks.

A stunning deck of cards that goes well with the industrial edition of deck one. Buy them now.
Anthony • Canada • 03/10/13
I'd pay $5 dollars for the box alone! The fact that I get cards too is AWESOME!!
Pollock • Africa • 03/05/13
The box is just awesome. It's like the Deck One box. (although I like the Deck One better haha) The cards feel great. All that you expect from a T11 deck so just go ahead and get it. No complaints.
Ned • Pennsylvania • 02/15/13
These cards are AMAZING! They handle great, and they look even better. My only complaint is that the box isn't as deeply embossed as I was expecting - because the silver steam punks are very embossed. But otherwise, I highly recommend this deck.
Kyriakos • Greece • 02/13/13
Nice cards for magic. Great back and tuck box. Good handling and very smooth.
Stephen Milano • New Mexico • 02/08/13
I enjoy the steampunk theme of this deck. The ace of spades and jokers are very nice. I personally like the standard court cards with the colors pumped up. The cards handle very well and perform nicely.
Doks • Latvia • 01/16/13
Bought 2 of them. One I'm keeping untouched for my collection and the other one using to learn/perform card tricks and flourishes. Simply amazing feel and look. Getting lots of compliments too on this deck. Just love it. 5/5
James • GA • 12/28/12
I've always loved steampunk themes from movies such as Wild Wild West. This deck does the theme justice, my only complaint is that I wish they would have done more with the court cards to make them fit the steampunk theme. Overall great handling deck, plus I love the bronze tuckbox. Great addition to any collection!
Steve • USA • 12/13/12
Love this deck! I got great reviews from friends as soon as I started using them so I had to come back for more. One of my favorite theory11 decks.
David • Maryland, U.S.A. • 12/11/12
The box is pretty great and looks good with my collection. The cards are pretty slick and handle well. However, I think that the design falls a bit flat. When you mix the paper white into the machinery, it does not look too great. But I still think it is worth the price.
Lian • PA • 12/11/12
This deck lasted a lot longer than I expected. Maybe my way of handling cards have changed. They look amazing. Especially the box. Looks like a real block of metal. Great for magic and everything else.
Ting • Taiwan • 11/27/12
Great card with great artwork!
Advent • USA • 11/27/12
The theme of this deck is well portrayed in every well-oiled gear of the box. The inside is likewise as smooth as clockwork. A beautiful piece of art. Thank you theory11!
Dale Wesley • Bear, Delaware • 11/23/12
The box of these cards are fantastic, with just the right look and feel. The cards handle wonderfully for cardistry and are also nice and flashy for some tricks. My only gripe is that there is nothing new to the design of the cards themselves, just the box and the backs.
Chris • New Zealand • 11/04/12
Amazing cards. Look amazing, feel wonderful and handle so smoothly.
Patto • Portugal • 10/31/12
It looks awesome, and the box looks like real copper!
Avery Wilson • Columbus, Ohio • 10/20/12
Great idea - even better deck of cards! These are by far one of the best decks I've had since deckONE! Plus deckONE and Steampunk go great together! The cards are all beautiful! The finish lasts a good bit of time.
AK • Japan • 10/19/12
Great smooth design. This design would be suitable for almost any style. Great quality. The face of the cards except Jokers and Ace of Spades are not so different from Bicycle (the red ink is a little darker - chic).
Leviel • Bagram, Afghanistan • 10/19/12
Great cards with a smooth shuffle and deal. Wonderful artistry and fun box. Bought several decks through Huckberry.
Joshua • Australia • 10/18/12
This is a really great deck, great for anything! They handle beautifully but it would look nicer if there was more time spent designing the cards and not just the box.
Wei • NYC • 10/16/12
The box is absolutely amazing and the gold ink on the back is one of the best I have seen on a deck of cards. But I do feel the back should be altered to have a more metal feel to match the box.
Kirill • Russia • 10/12/12
Good handling and nice back design make this deck pretty cool. Dribbles and springs are perfect! Beautiful tuck box can add your style, if you're a fan of steampank or rock music. If you're looking for really cool deck, this is it. Buy it. Use it. Love it ;)
Craig • Melbourne • 10/06/12
The box itself looks is a masterpeice forged in the fires of Mount Doom, easily rivalling the One Ring.
And the cards themselves are so beautiful and incredibly detailed, not to mention their amazing handling.
Harry • Europe • 09/25/12
Good handling but lacks face design.
Pin Shen Phua • Singapore • 09/25/12
These cards just feel awesome. Their back design is amazingly designed. Nice!
azzkikncardz • Philippines • 09/24/12
Love the tuck box, really great for giant fans!
Oli Smith • England • 09/23/12
Really great and highly unique cards. They handle well and have an awesome ace and joker design.
Roger • Australia • 09/22/12
Looks like real bronze! Buy it!
Joshua • Australia • 09/21/12
One of the best decks I have handled from T11!
Rick • LA, CA • 09/19/12
The description is very misleading. It makes it sound as if they were metallic or used metallic paint or some such. They are standard cards besides the jokers and ace of spades. That being said, they are extremely nice cards and my new favorites.
Nick • Iowa • 09/14/12
I really love these cards. I use these all the time for flourishes and tricks and I have to say the handling is just amazing!
Özcan • Turkey/Ankara • 08/15/12
I received my cards. They are just as beautiful as they are on the screen. Holding them is a great experience. The back of the deck offers you a great design and the ink color used on the front is different from standard Bicycle decks. The color tone is very attractive. Jokers are also beautiful and you get used to them in no time.
I suggest you buy one for yourself or as a gift to your fellow magician. Thanks for the design Alex. I am happy about my choice.
Jordan H • U.S • 08/11/12
New Favorite deck. Seriously.
The cards design is stunning, it gives the illusion that they actually have metal parts on them!
Although the cards have standard faces ( with the exception of the Ace of Spades, and Matching Jokers), The cards are tinted a bit to look more distinct.
The Face Cards (Court) have golden, rustic look to them, and the reds are a bit darker.
Overall, it creates a great look and style for the Cards. 5 stars!
Jeremy • Vietnam • 08/09/12
I have to admit, it's really an awesome design.
Jeff Ritzmann • Baltimore, MD • 07/20/12
I have to say, the cards are great, but I agree with others here that the artwork is lacking in terms of the amount of customization. Queen, Jack, King? Nothing? Really?
mismag822.jnr • London • 06/20/12
Awesome cards with a long-lasting smooth handling.
Richard "The Crow" • Detroit, MI • 05/02/12
Great deck, nothing was spared in the making of true perfection. The court cards are highlighted with gold and deep colors. The back, the jokers, and the ace of spades attract much attention while flourishing.
Chris • Canada • 04/24/12
Back design is amazing, ace of spades and joker have awesome detail as well! Handling is just superb, the best I've felt in a while! Pick these up, they are a must have. I personally love standard pips on the spot cards and ordinary picture cards. The gold color on the faces are outstanding. Keep up the great work theory11!
Cardistry • WI • 04/21/12
At first when you open the box, the deck seems great. But after using it for a while and once broken in, you'll understand what this deck is really about. It's theory11 quality, class and style. With all the custom decks out today, it's good to know your audience still recognize that theory11 Steampunk is a deck of cards. They don't want to look at someone elses face. That's why this deck was designed with traditional court cards. Over all, this deck deserve a ********** rating for box, handling, looks, stock and feel. For flourishing, this deck is way up there. Outstanding work theory11!
Cesar • mercedes.tx • 04/02/12
What did you guys expect? They're from bicycle!
Rowhan The Conjurer • Philadelphia PA • 04/01/12
I just got a deck of these yesterday, would have been cooler if the court cards were custom. Instead of all the white on the back use black or a metal color / texture like brass or copper. Other than that, they are rather cool.
Sean • Alfred, NY • 03/25/12
Just got these as a gift from some friends and they are fantastic! The design of the cards and even the box is beautiful! My friends and I always play cards at the bar, and they just survived a night of some serious drinking games. Rather impressive amongst college students.
Michael • Colorado, USA • 03/25/12
By far the BEST cards I have ever had! They are not only beautiful, but to me they last forever! I have very sweaty hands, and I have had these for over a month now and still fan out perfectly!
Jefferie • Kilimanjaro • 03/15/12
First of all, I think these cards are gorgeous. I also think these cards are better than the Titanium Tally Hoes
Justin Hu • Vancouver Wa • 03/13/12
Sick cards, front and back. I know people complain about the design but I personally love it's originality. As for the front, the simplistic and normal pictures kept the cards from going over board. The thin cards felt broken in right out of the box, which is stellar, and did everything I wanted them to do. Great cards for really everything.
Jaden • Minnesota • 02/29/12
There's NO beating this deck box, but if you think you're getting a crazy completely-custom deck, you're wrong. It was a huge letdown to see that the court cards didn't even use copper or metallic gold! They just darkened the colors like with the Aristocrats. This deck's box was phenomenal, but they could've at least made court cards with colors related to the theme.
Justin • Fort Collins, CO • 02/06/12
The box is a work of art! Unfortunately, the deck itself was a let down. After buying a bunch of specialty decks over the last few years, it gets boring when all the cards have the same face design. Change the backer image, create a killer box...new collector's deck. I'd rather have a completely redesigned deck where all of the cards are unique instead of a fancy box that you don't really need/use.
Marcus • San Antonio, TX • 02/01/12
Breathtaking! They just arrived in the mail, and they are absolutely incredible. The most detailed design I have ever seen - from the back design, to the Ace of Spades, to the Joker, to the box.
Brilliant! Love them. Highly, highly recommended. Must have.
Marissa • Madison, WI • 01/31/12
I was REALLY disappointed when I got these and found out only a couple cards in the whole deck have Steampunk art. The box is great, but I definitely would have only purchased one set instead of 3 for gifts. And maybe not even that one.
Mikko • Tampere, Finland • 01/20/12
Very good quality, but I'm also disappointed with the faces. I expected more steampunk feel and would've really wanted steampunk-styled court cards. I've got an elegant H.P. Lovecraft pack, with elder gods depicted in court cards, and was expecting something like that here.
So, good cards, but not quite as steampunk as advertised.
William McKeehan • New Mexico USA • 01/14/12
I'm not a huge fan of the look of these cards. However, they feel GREAT! The backs of the cards are a bit abstract for me and the faces are pretty standard. But if you think they look cool and want a deck that feels great, then they are for you!
Ian • Durham, England • 01/12/12
I love these cards. The design is brill and I think I am going to order 5 decks. I will use these on all of my tricks. theory11, you rock!
Dawn • Greensboro, NC • 01/10/12
First of all, these cards are fantastic. However not all of the cards have a steampunk feel to them. The back of each card has a steampunk design, however, only a few card fronts have a steampunk feel. Only the Ace of Spades and the Jokers (I believe that's it). I was a little disappointed that there wasn't a steampunk feel for each card and extremely disappointed that the face cards didn't at least have a special design to them. If anything, at least all of the Aces. I recommend these cards, but don't expect a unique look for every card.
Krystal • Oklahoma • 01/10/12
When I first saw the video of these cards, I was glued to the screen. I loved the way they looked and was amazed by the way that just the box looked. I ordered a set and can't wait to use them. These by far are my favorite looking playing cards.
Nevermet Press • The Ether • 01/09/12
These cards are GORGEOUS. I've ordered multiple packs for giveaways later this year. I LOVE these!
dru • USA • 01/08/12
i think these cards will be great, i just ordered some, but I think they are just a variation of the Deck one, which is the BEST DECK IN THE WHOLE FREAKIN WORLD!
Z723GE9 • Mars • 01/08/12
These cards came from space. And they rock. Get them.
JA • World • 01/06/12
Best cards ever.
Eric Stevens • Chewelah, Washington • 01/06/12
My two decks of Steampunk arrived this afternoon, and I must tell you that these cards are ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC. theory11 has really stepped up the quality of their decks this past year, and I am amazed at the level of detail and dedication to the project that the team was willing to go. Custom-making paper for the tuck cases? 12 MILLION polygons?! Simply incredible. And don't even get me started on how the cards feel. If you do not have this deck, don't miss out. Buy it now.
James Wise • Denton, Texas • 01/04/12
When I saw the unopened box it nearly took my breath away, it was beautiful and then when I opened the box and pull the cards out, I felt a slight disappointment. Don't get me wrong, I think these cards are amazing BUT just not as much as the box makes you expect. If the cards had a metallic ink to it to make it shine more, it would have made it much more beautiful and elegant. It handles amazing! Fans and spreads are like spreading smooth fluff! They are amazing overall but just don't be surprised if you're a bit disappointed at first.
Mr. A • Earth • 01/01/12
These cards are amazing. The box is raising the bar for other decks and the backs are so interesting. This is a "must buy" deck.
