Interlocking Burrs - Premium

The description of an Interlocking Burr puzzle as "an interlocking geometrical puzzle, composed of notched rods, possessing a high degree of external symmetry" is attributed to Bill Cutler, a prolific and well know designer of very difficult burrs.

Brian's (alias Mr Puzzle's) favourite type of puzzle. This category has some of our most difficult puzzles and many of our own designs. Complex hard puzzles to really challenge, with a couple of easy puzzles thrown in for fun.

These puzzles also showcase the woodworking skills of the manufacturers represented here including Brian Young @ Mr Puzzle, Václav Obšívac from Vinco's puzzles and Jakub Dvorak and Jaroslav Svejkovsky from the Pelikan workshop.

  2. Trilateral triangle burr

    Trilateral triangle heavy metal burr

    A new three-piece interlocking burr on a triangular grid. This black anodised piece looks sinister and somehow seems menacing. But it's actually a very doable burr puzzle and makes a fascinating and engaging executive desk piece.  It moves enough to make it interesting but definitely won't just fall apart easily.
