4 out of 5 stars
Fit and finish is superb; perhaps too much so. The tolerances on this cube are so tight that even if the weather changes it's possible that you will find much difficulty in opening this box. However, it is a fun puzzle that while simple, will keep people new to puzzle boxes entertained for a short while. In terms of appearance and how the box itself works I have to give it a 5; however, the difficulties I encountered force me to lower the rating to a 4; but this is from the perspective of someone who casually enjoys this type of thing and admittedly doesn't keep puzzle boxes in a velvet-lined humidity-controlled case. I had this very problem with the box, and this company dealt with it in a superb manner. I have 0 complaints with how things were handled and will be making my next purchase of puzzle(s) from here. They helped me troubleshoot and gave me suggestions as to how to deal with it. The end result was that additional grip was necessary to open the box, in the form of gloves with some form of grip. So in case you buy this and can't open it, try that first.
