The Yak might be an intimidating beast, but this puzzle could prove to be a tough nut to crack as well. Made from resistant 3mm nickel plated wire and brass for the diamond shapes, The Yak Puzzle requires you to remove the handle from the frame and then put it back to its starting position. A very challenging puzzle from the designer Dick Hess, who has created other interesting wire puzzles, like the Brontosaurus or The Whale. From our own brand of PuzzleMaster Wire Puzzles. Comes in a reusable clam shell packaging.

Very difficult puzzle. I only get the hardest rated puzzles because the less difficult ones are generally too easy for me. Even some of the most difficult puzzles don't cause my any problems. Not so this one! This one took me awhile. Since the puzzle has only three pieces, you can easily convince yourself that it is impossible; you will be wondering what else could I possibly try. It's amazing that such a simple looking puzzle would be so difficult to solve. If you are looking for a difficult challenging puzzle, you would be hard pressed to find a better one. Also, it should be noted that there is an invalid solution that involves some forcing. The correct solution does not have any moves that require any forcing.

WOW! The description is right. It is a very unique puzzle. While this puzzle looks quite simple, it reqires a few new moves that I have not seen in any other wire puzzle. Well done Mr. Hess.
This puzzle even seems to want to lead you down wrong paths. Careful study of the new movements will lead you to victory.
