The non-Hermitian Skin effect heralds the start of a new paradigm in synthetic metamaterial research. The newly established notion of the Skin effect requires specifically tailored gain and loss in combination with a necessary breaking of reciprocity. In this talk we extend this viewpoint and present a model which shows extensive eigenmode localization for open boundaries despite preserving reciprocity. In contrast to non-reciprocal implementations of the Skin effect, which require an external supply of energy, this model can be realized by using exclusively passive components. We experimentally demonstrate this novel phenomenon in a passive RLC circuit network. The reciprocal Skin effect suggests itself for realization in a plethora of metamaterial platforms with limited availability of active components.
