Bar Code:

Take the 5 parts apart and put them back to the original shape, that is the objective of this unique metal puzzle.

A word from the designer:
"At first glance, this puzzle by Kennet Walker of Rivermore, California doesn't seem unlockable. The five pieces can most certainly be taken apart. Putting them back together, however, is a whole new problem in itself.

My suggestion for solving this puzzle would be to not apply too much pressure. Solve it or not, the five pieces exude a kind of elegance, spiraling into a comfortable fit in the palm of your hand. The key word is 'spiral'".

Cast Spiral
Another good Cast puzzle which I love to share. My only complaint is the weight is to heavy to carry around very often in my pocket like I do Cast Loop.

Tricksy little devil
If there was ever a sarcastic little joker in the Hanayama line, it's this guy. I've over 30 puzzles in my collection and whenever I pick this dude up I just chuckle, hand it to whomever and say, good luck! Not because it's that easy because it's not! But because its simply baffling to the solver. Looking at it just doesn't make sense not for how it stays together - for it looks like it should just fall apart? - but for how it WON'T come apart. It kind of mocks you into solving it. Great weight, easy manageability and exceptionally challenging. If you spend over an hour on this one and happen to stumble upon it's dismantling it'll likely make you feel foolish. Then the second you accept the fact that you'd been outsmarted by a 5piece chunk of metal and confidently try to reassemble, it'll deliver it's second more agonizing punch line - putting it back together. Pieces look identical, shape is simple, and it makes no sense at all. A solid 5star in my book. Good luck with this guy and try not to throw it out your window!
