The "Key to the Heart" large hand made forged metal puzzle from Kovárna Mostek in the Czech Republic. This is a large and heavy puzzle, made from many individually forged steel pieces which makes a most unusual and interesting gift and will appeal to puzzle collectors. We are pleased to be the first to offer this artisan-made brain teaser puzzle for sale in the UK.
The goal: pull out the heart hanging at the bottom of the puzzle and then return it back.
THE KEY TO THE HEART is a beautiful puzzle, and not just because of its name. Want to win hearts? You must find the key! It's never easy, and certainly not in this puzzle. The puzzle is clear and very pleasing when hung on the wall.
True story: Once, this puzzle was bought by a young couple in Brno at the Christmas markets. The young man had promised to marry his girlfriend if she pulls out the heart. Well, we don't know how it turned out. Maybe they're already married, maybe they're still dating... this is a very hard puzzle after all.
Difficulty: A very difficult puzzle
The puzzle is packed in a jute bag with accompanying instructions. Try to resist the temptation to use the instructions to solve the puzzle! The instructions are there for anyone who manages to solve the puzzle, but cannot return it to its original state. It is also proof that it really works.
Dimensions when suspended:
- Height: 29 cm
- Width: 13 cm
- Weight: 480g (approx.)
Not suitable for children under 14.
All Kovarna Mostek products are finished with a light coating of natural beeswax to help protect the metal.
Keep the puzzle dry. In a humid environment, the puzzle could start to rust over time. You can help protect the puzzle against rust by treating the puzzle with a silicone oil spray or wax after solving it.
All these puzzles have the same goal: pull out a certain part of the puzzle (circle, heart, oblong oval) and then put it back. With each puzzle, only one thing is pulled out and no brute force is required.
