The puzzle is to remove the nails from their stand then separate the two nails. Look for the extra bend Mr. Puzzle has added to increase the difficulty of the puzzle.
Repeatedly separate and then put them back together and prove you have what it takes to really understand the puzzle.
With a slot cut in the wood to hold business cards this one makes a great desk accessory. Something for Christmas for the boss or secret Santa gift.
A popular form of the original nail puzzle was patented in 1910 in the USA by Walter Jenkins, however it was certainly known much earlier. In fact, it was probably being played with as early as the first half of the 17th century.
Size 160mm x 40mm x 65mm (to top of nails as they sit in the stand). The stand is made from Radiata pine with a clear lacquer finish.
