Designer Alexander Magyarics writes about his design:
2D and 3D packing problems are my favourites, especially those with only a few pieces, together with a sufficient level of difficulty. I hope you will like Pincers and add it to your collection. You do not need to create the illusion of a full cube inside (like we all do with amazing packing designs by Osanori). Just fit the three pieces below the top layer. So what is the clue here? – the shapes of the pieces and box opening. Study them well to eliminate a huge number of possible assemblies (83) to fit in 3x3x3 cube. There is only one solution and the disassembly level is 9.4.3 without any rotational moves. . Have fun with this puzzle.
This puzzle was crafted in Europe with absolutely fantastic quality. Each of the puzzles of Pelikan design are unparalleled in their class!
Every piece of the puzzle is precisely cut and very well made; you cannot find its equal anywhere else.The diversity in wood makes each puzzle a unique masterpiece.
Difficulty: 16 (9.4.3) No rotational moves required. The brackets indicate the breakdown of moves to free each piece sequentially. Made in a combination of beautifully contrasting Cherry & Ovangkol woods.
