remove completely the lid from the Hip Flask Puzzle..
Felix describes the puzzle as “A fiendishly challenging, multi-stage, sequential discovery puzzle.”
This is the second puzzle designed by Felix Ure. The first being Titan which has proved to be very difficult to solve by many puzzlers despite it’s the very straightforward and uncomplicated goal. Like the Titan, the Hip-Flask also has an uncomplicated goal; remove the lid of the flask. It is machined from unfinished solid brass. The puzzle is quite heavy and feels solid and substantial in your hand.
A multi-tep sequential puzzle, this is perhaps not as difficult as Titan, but most people will still find it rather difficult to solve.
Crafted in the UK in small limited editions, the Hip Flask is made of solid, unpolished brass. It slowly patinate and darken with use. Very substantial and pleasant in handling. It is quite weighty (735 grams) for its size, which is about 7,2 cm tall.
