Designed & made by the Karakuri Creation Group in 2004. The group themselves consider this to be the most difficult of their first 3 releases in the series. They even give this clue “There is the answer on this plate.” Cryptic? for sure! Any help to solve? not sure! Once you know the solution you can open it in just two moves. But one of them is quite a unique movement so don’t be fooled that that makes it easy to open!
This very special puzzle box is crafted in Katura wood (a type of Cherry tree).
As the craftsman who make these puzzle boxes age and less people are taking on the training required to make them we’re finding them they become more and more difficult to source, but also more and more prized.
Size outside: 60mm x 47mm x 42mm Space inside: 31mm x 17mm x 24mm This is quite a small box and not suitable to put something inside.
A solution is provided.
