Titan is a simple-looking, yet highly challenging take-apart puzzle. The first design by Felix Ure, it's widely regarded as being both incredibly difficult and very satisfying to solve. The goal is to open the sphere but to do so you must defeat the mechanism which keeps the two spheres together.
Machined from solid brass, Titan measures 2 inches (50mm) in diameter and weighs 515g or approximately one lb. The brass is left unfinished, leaving it to slowly patinate and darken with use. Difficulty: 9/10.

Perhaps it’s more accurate for me to say that Mr. Fuller delivers Titan, but once he does I promise you will not be disappointed! Titan is quite an impressive puzzle. Just don’t drop it on your toe (like I did)!
Always a joy to see difficulty arise from elegance and simplicity. Even if you work out what's going on in there, there's still some dexterity and intentionality needed to accomplish the solve. As such there's replay value if you enjoy fiddling with beautiful, substantial objects!
Much better than Hip Flask if you’re looking for difficulty. Flask took me 30 minutes. Titan took me OVER 50 HOURS! (Maybe a little less but I like to keep it honest)
It is unbelievably difficult and even after solving it isn’t easy to do again. Probably my favorite puzzle yet. Looking forward to more from Felix Ure.
