Could this be the hardest puzzle Hanayama have ever made to date? It’s 6/6 on their difficulty scale but we bet they wish they had a 10! to give it.
If the solution is anything to go by then the answer is yes. We’ve never seen them produce anything with 5 pages of diagrams and 43 steps to solve the puzzle before!
Designed by Jin-Hoo Ahn from Korea who also designed the Level 5 Hanayama cast Padlock and the G&G puzzle. Now this one is a step up from those already very hard puzzles to the hardest Level 6 difficulty rating that Hanayama have.
