Venn Puzzle - Carbon Black
Rated 4.9 out of 5
Based on 16 reviews

$ 95

A beautiful mechanical puzzle comprising three identical pieces, die-cast in stainless steel and weighing almost 2 pounds. Until now the Venn Puzzle has only been available in stainless steel, but this limited release features our super-durable Carbon Black finish on a small number of units. 

Initially launched in September 2018, the Venn Puzzle is a surprisingly difficult dexterity challenge and an intriguing addition to your desk, shelf, or coffee table. The assembled puzzle creates a perfect sphere — so each piece makes up one-third of the sphere by volume.

While simple in concept, reassembling these three surprisingly heavy pieces of stainless steel is deceptively complicated. Once you've mastered it, the visual and tactile appeal hold fast long after the initial challenge has been vanquished. These pieces are cast from molten stainless steel in a ‘die’ or mold at temperatures over 2500°F.

Specifications:

  • 2.25" D (same as a pool ball)
  • Die-cast Stainless Steel
  • Black nitrocarburized finish
  • Weighs 1 lb, 12 oz
  • Comes with a small brass display stand

Incredible feel and precision

I own both the stainless and the black Venn puzzles. They are satisfyingly heavy in the hand. I bought the stainless puzzle some time ago and it is wonderful. Then when I got the black one a couple weeks ago, I was blown away that they have increased the precision fit, where the already small seam between the pieces is nearly flush now.

As puzzles go, it's not terribly difficult, but it really hits that part of the brain which feels good when something fits together *just* right.

In my growing collection of puzzles and mechanical gizmos, the Venn Puzzles are my favorites.

I didn’t think the venn could get any cooler

But it did!!! The matte finish is amazing to handle. It’s not an entirely different puzzle over the stainless OG model (duh) but it’s enough to really make solving and un solving a really fun experience!
