BS_Teufel_Burr_Set.jpg (30305 bytes) This burr set consists of a beautiful, partitioned box holding twenty good-quality wooden burr pieces (notched rods). Each rod is labeled. The burr puzzle pictured above can be made one hundred and fifty-nine different ways, taking six different pieces at a time.

There is a description of how to use this set in English, German, French. There is no complete solution booklet, but there is a Table of Tasks that describes the twenty pieces and their relative positions to get you started on the one hundred and fifty-nine solutions.

Mathematicians and puzzle lovers have devoted a great deal of time to study this type of puzzle over the years. The Japanese have developed it into the popular puzzles known as kumiki (burr puzzles made to look like animals, geometric shapes or other interesting things). This Teufel Burr Set would be a fun way to enhance your, or someone-you-know’s, own exploration of burr puzzles.

For those of you really into burr puzzles, you’ll appreciate this technical information:
This twenty piece set contains 15 of the 25 "notchable" six-piece burr pieces that make Level 1 burrs as described by burr specialist Bill Cutler. Five duplicates are included to make the total 20 pieces. Sixty-seven of the 159 solutions use a solid (un-notched) piece, the rest use all notched pieces.
