Japanese Puzzle Boxes are handmade and each box is a Masterpiece! Work-of-Art!

This box has the traditional "Yosegi" pattern and 27 steps (moves) you will need to execute to achieve the right combination that opens this amazing puzzle box.

In order to open a Japanese Puzzle Box, you need to find the first piece (part of the box) you can move (by "move" we mean actually "slide"). This action causes other piece of the puzzle to "unlock" and allows you to move it too now. This is kind of a "chain reaction" where each piece you move partially unlocks other piece allowing it to be moved as well, and so on and so forth, so basically each move you execute allows you to execute your next move.

When the right movement combination is achieved, the box will open (meaning you are able to slide the top panel and open the box).

2 things you need to know
1. "Sun" is the measurement of the box - the bigger this value is, the larger the box is.
2. The more steps your puzzle box has means the mechanism is more complex and therefore the box is more challenging and difficult to solve!

Note: At the bottom of the page for the link above, you will see an animated solution for a 5 Step Japanese Puzzle box. This is a great example to better understand how the mechanism for these kind of puzzles work.

I'm impressed
I purchased two larger puzzle boxes from you, one for my home and one for my parents. I am both an engineer, and also a wood technologist having degrees in both. My interest in the puzzle boxes stems from my long term love and interest in wood working, machining and joinery. I am impressed with the puzzle boxes. The wood inlay is done to a quality level unseen seen in the US. Each box was made by a craftsman that new wood and machining. The wood material was obviously dried to a low MC% before production. Our box keys and panels slide relatively easily. There were no marred surfaces. I have absolutely no complaints or criticisms. I would recommend the puzzle boxes wholeheartedly.
