Hanayama Difficulty Level 4 – Fairly Hard
As the name implies, there is a hidden trick inside the cylinder puzzle.
There is absolutely no hint or clue on how to start from the outside appearance. If there is one hint that we can provide, it is to go about it as if you were cracking open a safe. Enjoy finding the solution while pretending to be a spy cracking open a safe with a shaken not stirred martini by your side.
The theme is “lock”. There are 5 pieces to the puzzle.
Designed by Vesa Timonen from Finland in 2012. Vesa tells us there were seven iterations over many months of what would eventually evolve into the Cylinder puzzle. The puzzle followed the principle “form to mechanism”. By this Vesa means that he first came up with the shape I wanted and then invented a mechanism to fit the shape.
Amazing! Imagine being able to design a puzzle that way.
Size: Cylinder diameter 35mm. The puzzle now comes in the new Hanayama Huzzle packaging 75mm x 115mm x 45mm
