The Valk 3 Mini is the miniature version of the highly-acclaimed Valk 3, which was first released to the market in August 2016. At just 47.4mm across, this 3x3 speed cube feels a little bit smaller than a typical 2x2, but due to high-precision molding, it retains the classic feel of the original Valk 3.
The Valk 3 Mini is packaged inside a large display case with a bag of extra pieces, a Valk 3 pamphlet, and transparent Valk logo sticker.

This is a very great puzzle! Even tho after u do a couple solves it might have a little bit of lockups.
I have seen other reviews saying that this cube is bad. I will have to disagree with those. With a good setup this cube barely locks up and is super speedy yet controllable. I really like it! It is a bit on the small side but after a few solve you get used to it!
What can I say , my 3rd purchase of this awesome cube . THANK YOU Cubicle for your continued excellence in providing excellent service !
The Valk 3 mini Stickerless . for starters , this is a non magnetic cube and it is indeed a true scaled down replica of the Valk 3 standard sized cube. This cube like its big brother has a complexity of 101. I like the fact that the entire cube is scaled down correctly as for example , the GAN 354 M v2 is NOT a true scaled down cube. The challenge for QiYi is they were able to maintain the true Valk feel in this smaller variant. This is why they supply the extra corner pieces. Because the Valk feel is based on this particular brittle plastic , as you reduce the size , this brittle plastic which is similar to bakelite used in the old art deco radios of the '30s and '40s is prone to breaking when the cube is disassembled for cleaning. Also the corner design in the full sized Valk is already rickety in a sense and this is what creates the awesome Valk feel. Hats off to QiYi for this excellent release ! Good job. I really like this cube , I like the Shiney very colorful finish and the true symmetricality. I did notice in the comments about this cube falling apart and unfortunately it is a bit of pot luck chance with each cube purchased as QiYi did not standardize this cube. you 'might' get a cube with green internals or blue or orange etc... you might get a cube with a sticker or the logo printed directly on the cap.one of the cubes I received had springs that were too tight and this eventually caused one of the screws to back out of the core for an awesome 'pop! Luckily I got the cube I wanted with my 3rd purchase . Personally I like stickerless cubes and I also like non magnetic cubes as well and the Valk is my main and it is awesome! I am going to order 'one' more .... ;-) p.s. I hope to get a Cubicle pro shop Valk 3 non magnetic Stickered with full face stickers , this cube looks awesome and I hope to have one soon.
Valk 3 Mini (4.74cm)
It os very food for a OH & 3x3 solves
But this cube its really good especially for one handed
But this cube it’s really good especially for one handed
This is an awesome cube for 3x3 if you have small hands like me and is awesome for OH. Others I feel are too big or too small for my turning style. This cube felt excellent out of the box, and after breaking it in, this cube was outstanding! I did not lube or tension, but when I removed an edge and corner to compare the mechanism to the Gan 356 Air SM in my unboxing and first thoughts video, it felt like the cube had been lubed. I don't know if it is the plastic, if it comes lubed, or if The Cubicle accidentally did the Cubicle Pro Shop Lube Service on mine, though I didn't order it. I am happy though because it is lubed which means I don't have to buy lube...yet. Anyways, this is a great product, and I hated setting it down to type this review because I love solving it to the point where I can't set it down, but I felt like I should spread the word of this outstanding puzzle.
Its a great cube, but within 20 solves one of the screws in the core broke. Would appreciate if the cubicle would send me another!
