Product Info

The cover rattles, however, you can't open the box by usual methods.  You have already been deceived.  It takes only one move to open, but you will be surprised by what you discover. 

It is based on an idea that was put "in storage" over 10 years ago because of some production issues.  This puzzle however, adds a new device to the old idea.  The one-point Yosegi piece on the top of the box was made by Yoshiyuki Ninomiya.

Please note that the teak wood color may vary slightly from the image.

Karakuri Creation Group has beautiful puzzle boxes with unique opening mechanisms and wonderful artistry.  The crafting work of Hakone & Odawara have been passed down through generations from the Edo era.  Today, craftsmen continue these traditions and explore new and interesting high quality works so that the world of the "Karakuri box" continues to evolve. 

Comes in a pressboard box.
Solution is included.
