Harun is another brilliant packing puzzle by Dr. Volker Latussek, designer of the award-winning "Casino." Volker's superpower is creating complex assemblies with simple pieces. True to form, Harun consists of six bars and six notched sticks packed into an ordinary box. The resulting challenge is quite tricky! There are two possible assemblies, a more straightforward symmetrical solution and a more difficult asymmetrical one.
Our original 2019 Harun release was crafted with ultra-premium exotic woods. We sought to replicate that desirability in our metal release, resulting in three eye-popping wood variants: Dense Black Palm, Figured Chechen, and Quilted Bocote. The twelve solid brass pieces are CNC machined to our customary tolerances. Each piece is then hand-finished and passivated to inhibit tarnishing.
Harun ships unsolved, with each brass piece individually wrapped in protective film.
Our work is handcrafted to very precise tolerances and must be kept within the range of 40-60% relative humidity at all times. Failure to do so may cause inoperability or permanent damage.
Please read the Caring for Wood Puzzles guide to ensure proper fit and operation. We recommend an occasional polishing with Renaissance Wax to keep wood puzzles in top condition.
Handling Metal Puzzles
I had already solved an older wood copy of Harun, but I was happy to see CD release it again so I could have my own. It's a great size; I appreciate these smaller builds since they take up less shelf space. The metal pieces are a pleasure to manipulate and not too heavy either. Watching these pieces slide into the box is so satisfying. Keep up the great work!
Received this as a Christmas gift. It is a great puzzle took me a week to work out how it would have to fit together to work and then it took me three weeks to make it happen. The picture of the solved puzzle offers a part of the key I needed.
This is the metal version of Harun in a wooden box. The pieces have a satisfying heft to them, and the puzzle was harder than I expected. Glad I got a copy of this one, finally.
