Product Description

Note: Our level rating system is different than Hanayama's.  Hanayama's level 1 is equivalent to our level 5.... level 6 is equivalent to our level 10.

As the name implies, there is a hidden trick inside the cylinder puzzle.  There is absolutely no hint or clue on how to start from the outside appearance.  If there is one hint that we can provide, it is to go about it as if you were cracking open a safe.  Enjoy finding the solution while pretending to be a spy cracking open a safe with a shaken not stirred martini by your side.  The theme is "lock".

Designed by Vesa Timonen from Finland

Very challenging and nicely made. Even as it begins to open up, much of the inner workings remain hidden. I might even rate the difficulty one level higher. Recommended.

Already a personal favorite. This puzzle is well made, and fun to handle. The solution does not come without a bit of study, as it is fairly easy to get apart, but a bit more difficult to re-assemble. The suggestion from the dealer to consider it similar to opening a safe is a good description of the type of moves that are necessary. Consider that there are only twelve possible combinations of the outer rings, as each has twelve notches, and the beginning of the solution can be seen. Then it gets tricky, because careful shifting of the rings in relation to inner pieces become necessary. If you like puzzles like Enigma, Equa, H&H, Marble and Vortex, you will want this one in your collection. Fun to simply hold in the hand as a work of art.

What a nice little puzzle! I think it is very similar to "Cast Nutcase". It seems there is not strictly one solution, due to the symmetry of two pairs of the pieces. I also solved it once, but had difficulties on my second go. After it, however, I figured out what should be done. I do not recommend it to people with weak nerves, though.

I recommend Cast Cylinder because the design gives you absolutely no hint on how to open the puzzle. I fiddled around with it for about 30 minutes before I got the first "move." It didn't take too long after that to get it completely apart. Getting it back together might be a little more difficult.
