Stock Update 14th July 2020:  These puzzles are now sold out. I have no information about when the next batch may arrive. I do know that the next puzzle to arrive from Wil Strijbos will be the Lotus towards the end of this month or early August.

The goal is to take the two parts of the cross apart.   It does not require any force or banging and there are no magnets.

The goal is to take the two parts of the cross apart.   It does not require any physical force or banging and there are no magnets.

This might look like Wil’s original Aluminium Cross but the outside appearance is where that stops.  This is a totally different puzzle!

In September 2015 Wil was challenged by a customer to see if he could design an easier version of his Aluminum Cross puzzle; something non-puzzle people could do and enjoy and truly understand the elegant solution.  Wil came up with the first version of the Sweta Cross.  It’s internal workings are nothing like the Aluminium Cross.

The next step was to create this version of the puzzle.   Something to challenge more seasoned puzzlers.  It’s possibly more closely related to our Don’t Get Cross puzzle but with many, many more twists and turns and a hell of a lot of little ball bearings that I’m happy to say can’t fall out at any point but do get in the way when you’re trying to solve it!

The name Sweta Cross is a combination of Wil’s girlfriend’s name and the country of Switzerland because that’s where the original request for the design came from.

A high quality product made from precision machined polished Aluminium and has Wil’s signature and the name of the puzzle engraved on it. The puzzle is packaged in a small white box. It does have a wooden base with the cross of Switzerland cut out of it that comes separate and is not packaged inside the box.

Size:  The cross is 60mm x 60mm & 35mm high.   
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.

    WOW!! Very enjoyable puzzle. Not the hardest to solve, a cross puzzle only has a couple of ways to come apart. That said I loved the little extra involved in getting this done. Quality, clean, good to look at, and feels amazing to hold. I have no complaints about the price for this level of workmanship. This is my first Wil Strijbos, it won’t be my last. Highly recommended.
