Abus EC60 impressioning

Last Friday, Jos got a little present: an ABUS E60 as an impressioning challenge.
The keyway is way different to what he usually encounters during competitions (which would be the old trusted C83) so it was a good thing a handful of blanks were thrown in as well…

It’s a six pin cilinder, and the keys vary quite a lot in thickness when you go down. At some points it more than doubles between cuts!
So basically, lots of Jos’ fancy tools were rather unusable for this one. But, it took only two blanks and the better part of 45 minutes (which included a phonecall) but in the end it did open!

    This is the first cylinder I have seen that is stamped 2 star.
    UK Cylinders either come 1 or 3 star as the single star is usually combined with a two star handle.
    Are always assumed the same standards applies throughout Europe.
    I would be interested to know if any other professionals can verify this?

    I don’t know about combining locks and handles, but in my collection, I have more 2 SKG star cylinders than 1 SKG star cylinders. I have 2 star cylinders from NEMEF, DOM, Lips, Ivana, Wilka, ..
