This metal interlocked burr has four unusual shaped pieces that interlock to make a shape like a cross-hatch or a hashtag or the number symbol #.
The puzzle definitely lends itself to metal, heavy metal, rather than wood because of the odd shapes and angles would be difficult to make strong enough to interlock the way they do. With this type of puzzle, it’s taken for granted (unless otherwise stated) that no force is required to do the puzzle and that’s still true here but with this one, it would be difficult to break anyway!
This bright blue anodised pieces are very attractive and the shape lends itself to a modern theme. Great for the desk of that person who’s hooked on Twitter and other social media! It can move quite a lot without coming apart. It won’t just fall apart by mistake that’s for sure.
This puzzle is 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!
The puzzle is made from blue anodised aluminium. It has been stamped rather than individually machined the way some of the more expensive collectible metal puzzles are. But it looks pretty good and the value is there at this price.
Size: 50mm x 50mm x 50mm
Cross Hatch is packaged in an aluminium tin with removable lid. The sits well inside a rubber cut out to prevent scratching. It has a printed step by step solution inside. This really attractive tin packaging makes a great gift.
