It appears like a box-like lump with a hole in it, but is actually comprised of two coiled up virtually identical pieces. You must try to take it apart by sliding and rotating the pieces. Although the pieces are angular in shape, they can be rotated in unexpected ways, making their movements quite intriguing. The theme of the puzzle is Loops.

Cool looking and fun to solve, although not quite as challenging as the difficulty rating suggests. It's a nice size and weight to carry around, with a chunky feel. I like it.
This is easily one of my favourite Hanayama puzzles I have done so far. The build quality is excellent and it has a very nice look to it. I found that the pieces have loosened up a lot after many people attempting it, although this is to its benefit. I would say the difficulty rating is appropriate, it took me a day of on and off working on it. I struggled most putting it back together. An excellent puzzle to fidget with on conference calls or car rides. Highly recommend!
I own a couple dozen Hanayama and this is one of my favorites. The look and feel of this puzzle is incredible. Moves are so smooth and satisfying to complete. Usually never disappointed With Hanayama, all things considered one of my favorite from them and underrated. This was a bit easier than other fives, I’d say it may be closer a four out of six on their scale.
Nice pocket puzzle to carry around. Difficult at first, Easy once you know the path. The fist one I had however, was locked together very tight. It took a while for the brass piece to move. Once I got it apart while just moving the pieces around, I could not figure out how I did it. Then the puzzle was to put the two pieces back together. Good puzzle to hand out and show friends.
I think this puzzle is underrated. I bought it for a friend of mine, he managed to disassemble it, but could not assemble it back. I think he was not paying attention during the first part and was just lucky. I tried to assemble it and could do it only with the help of a video which shows how to take the two parts apart. But I have no idea how it works in general. I might buy it one day for myself.
Appropriately-rated difficulty. It took me 10 minutes to get this puzzle apart, and a little longer to put it together again. But it took me a few days to understand the sequence of moves to solve the puzzle consistently. As with all Hanayama puzzles, this is expertly designed and manufactured. A must have!
Great little puzzle, getting it apart was pretty easy but it took me hours to get back together. Feels solid and looks good. Its my 1st Hanayama....Im totally getting more of these now!
Great puzzle, not so hard but anyway. 35 mins to open and close. My 21st hanayama.
Beautiful puzzle. New to my collection. I already have 35 puzzle hanayama. MM Slovakia
