2-In-1 (Stainless Steel)

Product is available.
DESIGNER: Oskar van Deventer
MATERIAL: Stainless Steel
RELEASE DATE: 6.27.2022
SIZE: 2.125"

As shown by the previous releases we crafted from solid wood in its intended rectilinear form, 2-in-1 is one of our favorite burr puzzles. Eric recently had the idea to try the same assembly in precision milled round metal. The result is profound, a reinvention that adds significant difficulty and results in a beautiful, hefty metal sculpture.

This twelve-piece serially interlocking burr has a unique solution and multiple challenges. Merely deciphering the proper location and order of the pieces is the first challenge. Manipulating the parts to create the final assembly is its own trial. It requires dexterity and inventiveness (we take pity by including small elastic bands to aid in the process).

2-in-1 can be difficult and frustrating, but the result is worth the effort once solved. The solid stainless steel pieces interlock with absolute precision, each measurement accurate to within 0.05 mm. The final weight of over 1 lb (.5kg) is a testament to the materials' quality. In sum, 2-in-1 is a beautiful puzzle you won't regret experiencing.

This puzzle ships unassembled. The solution is available upon request.

Handling Metal Puzzles
All metals tarnish over time. Residual oil and salt from handling speed up the process and may leave undesirable fingerprints. Occasional use of our Metal Puzzle Polishing Kit with a coat of Renaissance Wax will keep your metal puzzles in tip-top shape!

Stainless Steel - a great puzzle

a very precisely made puzzle, great, quality like the wooden puzzles

just perfect

Already in the possession of a gorgeous copy in Padauk made by Alfons I just couldn't resist this stainless steel version with round rods by Eric. It’s tolerances are spot on, but in the end, due to the round rods the puzzle feels quite loose. This also helps to accidently disassembly...as I found out the hard way. Putting the puzzle together is hard, very hard and almost impossible without the provided elastic bands...and since they are provided...I was very surprised how well the pieces hold together once assembled though as stated earlier the puzzle will fall apart if handled wrong.

Tough but beautiful!

A great classic puzzle, made especially difficult due to the dexterity aspects of the solve. Eric is kind enough to enclose rubber bands to help with the assembly, and I definitely used some! Better yet, get a 3D printed jig to help. Ask on the Mechanical Puzzles Discord :-).
