Already in the first half of 2012 Stephane Chomine had invented & published more than 80 different complex and difficult burr puzzles. A prolific and amazing new puzzle inventor from France who only began publishing designs in the last few years. Having plenty to choose from only made the decision of which one to make more difficult.

The puzzle is to assemble the 6 pieces so that you make what looks like a framed burr. The Vice comes in two pieces and then the 4 other pieces intersect in two directions through it. It is a level 12.1.2.1.2 burr.

We’ve presented the puzzle disassembled which raises the difficulty level. Whilst at the same time being just 6 pieces the challenge to solve is not unrealistic. Nevertheless, it will be hard to do without resorting to the solution.

The Vice is made from Papua New Guinean Snakewood. The intersecting pieces are made from Queensland Silver Ash. Sold DISASSEMBLED.
Size when assembled: 60mm x 60mm x 60mm
