Product Info

Kevin Sadler wrote about this puzzle:

“Very few puzzle designs (other than 2D packing puzzles) are made using a triangular grid. I suspect that this is primarily because it is harder to design them with it being very hard to tell during the design process whether there will be unwanted rotational shortcuts. Also there are very few craftsmen willing to put in the time and effort to make the required jigs to these accurately. Here we have the perfect combination of a talented designer who has obviously done his homework and ensured there are no shortcuts as well as some of the best craftsmen in the world! This puzzle is named after the pepper shaker/castor because of the pattern of holes on one end and it quickly becomes apparent that they are there for a reason.   It is apparent that this puzzle is a very special variant on the usual Magyarics theme… (creating a fancy low piece number interlocking packing puzzle.) Repacking was a serious challenge!”

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: 18 (15.1.2)  The brackets indicate the breakdown of moves to free each piece sequentially.
Designed by:  Alexander Magyarics
Made with a Zebrano wood frame and either Padauk or Maple pieces.
