Anlon is the first burr design of Aaron Davila.

I wanted to design something new and something I never seen before, I have always been interested in unique shaped burrs. So i started out brainstorming with different shapes and chose the most unique one to design with burrtools. The puzzle was rather difficult to design because the shape requires one entire side to be "locked up", so I spent many days experimenting with different and unique burr sticks. After about a month I found the most unique design and tried my best to make it even harder. The result was "Anlon", a name suggested by Alfons Eyckmans. I hope this design is a difficult as I imagine it to be, I even find myself stuck every now and then.

All models are made by Alfons Eyckmans he has full rights to reproduce this puzzle.

The first model resides with Aaron Davila in Texas, U.S.A. The second and third model was improved by Alfons Eyckmans and resides respectivly with Goetz Schwandtner in Mainz, Germany and Yvon Pelletier in Quebec, Canada.
