Hanayama “Nutcase” Cast Metal Puzzle

Don’t be deceived by the simple appearance of Hamayama’s “Nutcase” puzzle; this thing is a definite brain teaser. This cast metal puzzle offers two challenges:

  1. Disassemble the case to reveal a hidden compartment with small nuts inside.
  2. Reassemble the puzzle but with the words on the bolts in reverse order (i.e. nut-casecase-nut)

This puzzle will probably take a while for you to solve on your own. Of course, you could always read the included solution if you get stumped, but where’s the fun in that?
