"Stickman Chopstick Puzzle Boxes are quality hand crafted from purpleheart, bloodwood and leopardwood pieces with rich maple inlays. Each box contains a pair of well-balanced and intricately inlayed chopsticks that come out individually as the external puzzle is solved. This box requires a minimum of 7 moves in order to remove both chopsticks. While somewhat simple in complexity, this box is quite mesmerizing and unique in its operation. You have to hold one of these in you hands to truly appreciate the gracefulness of its moving parts. Boxes are approximately 10 x 1 x 1, weigh 5 oz and come with instructions on the inside of its attached label. Each puzzle is signed on the inside of the first move. Note: Because of the lacquer used on the chopsticks, is it not recommended that they be used as an eating utensil. If enough interest exists for a second run of these boxes, future chopsticks will be crafted with a more suitable finish." -Eric Fuller
