Now here is a unique puzzle box. Made by Japanese craftsmen 12 Move 4 Sun Japanese Puzzle BoxHiroyuki Oka it features the classic Himitsu-Bako puzzle moves in its three sliding panels but has a never before seen puzzle element that must be solved before the panels will move. With-in the box is a sliding catch that can only be released by "knocking" or tapping the box in the correct manor.

This box is also rather oddly shaped for a 4 Sun box as well, being longer and thiner them most. Its just under 5 inches long.

Classic Koyosegi is used on the lid and bottom of the box, with a brown and tan checkerboard patterned yosegi being used on the edges. A light finish lets the feel of the wood come through - It practically glows!

The three sliding panel work very smoothly, as does the "Knock" move. The box is constructed from solid wood and is of high quality.

A pressboard gift box and opening instruction diagram are included.
