INFORMATION

Karakuri Small Box #1

KK-1 At first, we produced around 10 works through trial and error to create "Karakuri Small Box Series". This was the most popular work among those works. If you know the solution, you can open it with only 3 moves. But, almost no one can open it without knowing the solution. We named it just "#1", so we wouldn't give you a hint with the name.

Karakuri Small Box #2

KK-2 This is also a work that has only 3 moves. But also, there aren't many people who can open it without looking at the solution. When we showed the trial work to our friends, they just kept repeating, "Here? Really??", though we told them, "this plate is the solution".

Karakuri Small Box #2

KK-2-4 The device was changed only a little. The first step of the KK-2 is just like a preliminary movement. At the KK-2-4, it was omited.
Now, the first step is the main device. If you can't find the main device, it means you can't move even one step.

Karakuri Small Box #3

KK-3 Maybe we can say that #3 work is easier than #1 or #2. If you say, "I'm not good at difficult works", we recommend you try #3. In fact, at first we were going to make it as #1. But, we rethought, "There is no problem for Karakuri Fans !". Therefore, we made it as the third work.

Karakuri Small Box #7

KK-7

gKarakuri Small Box #7 was created based on gSmall Box 3 (M-24-3)h. I believe you can find the first step easily. The second moves in unexpected way that is different from standard Secret Boxes. And the third step is the solution. The first and second steps are the keys of the third step. But, add to this, the first and second steps are useful for how to move the third step.

Karakuri Small Box #8

KK-8

gKarakuri Small Box #8h was created based on g3D Box (K-20)h. g3D Boxh was created 10 years ago. If you know the g3D Boxh, maybe you are one of the veterans about Karakuri Works. 3 bars cross in a cube, and they influence each other. Of course, this works also has a space inside. The bars are unstable while making this work. It makes difficult to make. Especially, we need to pay attention to the process to make.
