Details

This metal burr has three identical pieces interlocked to make a triangular shape. This new puzzle was developed by Mr Gong and Wil Strijbos for Streetwise Puzzles Inc.

This is a level 4.2 burr but quite different from Wil's other metal burrs, or any other burr we've seen for that matter.  The puzzle definitely lends itself to metal, heavy metal, rather than wood because of the odd shapes and angles.

For puzzle collectors and non puzzlers alike this one has something to offer.   This precision made stainless steel piece looks great and makes a fascinating and engaging executive desk piece.  It moves enough to make it interesting but definitely won't just fall apart easily.

Brian (aka Mr Puzzle) didn't take too long to find the solution but fair to say but he does admit that his first thoughts on how it would work were totally wrong.  When you first start playing with the puzzle pieces do move but it really takes a bit of thought to work out how they might separate.

The Heavy Metal Triangle is not one of Wil's usual puzzles made of Aluminium. Rather this one is made of Stainless Steel. It is superbly made and the fit is pure precision. Kevin Sadler describes on his Puzzlemad blog that "the pieces are so well made that when piled up in a stack the surfaces are so perfectly flat that they actually stick together when you attempt to separate them".  High praise for sure from Kevin who has blogged literally hundreds of puzzles.

The outside edges have been bevelled giving it a good feel when you're playing with it. But the puzzle is very heavy and you should be careful not to drop it because it will damage something; avoid playing with it on your best wooden dining room table for sure!

Size:  Triangular sides are 70mm long. Width 43mm Thickness of pieces is 8mm
Wil is a true puzzle solver and has the philosophical view that puzzles should not come with solution sheets. So, if you purchase one of these puzzles there will be no solution supplied.
