Metal Puzzles

Frik-n-Frak's Curio Shack features several different types of Metal Puzzles.  Each of our metal puzzles is designed to provide you and your family with hours of entertainment, amusement, and mental stimulation. Metal puzzles are every bit as much FUN as they are educational!

Perhaps the most popular metal puzzles we offer are the Tavern Puzzles manufactured by the folks at Tucker-Jones House, Inc. in East Setauket, NY. 

Dennis Sulcisky, owner and museum-trained blacksmith, began creating these metal puzzles in 1980.  Today the company offers 28 different metal puzzles ranging in difficulty level from "basic" to "complex."

Some of the metal puzzles offered by the Tucker-Jones House are century old designs traditionally forged by blacksmiths to amuse their friends at taverns and inns.  There are also original designs which are destined to become the metal puzzles studied by future artists.

All of the metal puzzles in the Tavern Puzzle Collection are handcrafted and mechanical in nature; removal of the object piece does not rely on force or trickery.

Wire Puzzles are another fun and fascinating class of metal puzzles. These metal puzzles are lighter and thinner than the wrought iron Tavern Puzzles, yet present an equal challenge to even seasoned puzzlers! 

Typically, these wire metal puzzles consist of two or more entangled pieces. The object is always to solve the puzzle by disentangling the metal puzzle pieces without bending, cutting, or otherwise destroying the metal puzzle.  These challenging puzzles have been entertaining people of all ages for many, many years!
Double Heart Loop
Frik-n-Frak's Curio Shack offers more than 18 models of Wire Puzzles - ranging in difficulty from simple to very difficult!  All of these lightweight classic and original metal puzzles are handmade, brazed, and polished with pride by the good folks at Fiddl' Widdit in Bodega Bay, CA.

Triamese Angels Wire Puzzle Some of the metal puzzles in the Fiddl' Widdit line are Wire-and-String puzzles!  These closed loop string puzzles require the puzzler to disentangle the string or rope from the metal puzzle assembly without force and without damaging the string or the metal puzzle.  Based on classic designs, these metal puzzles continue to be among the most popular offered at Frik-n-Frak's!

You can also find some metal puzzles in our Novelty Puzzles section!  These may include Keychain Metal Puzzles, Mini Metal Puzzles, Party Favors, educational puzzles for the classroom - there's even the World's Smallest Wire Puzzles!

So, if metal puzzles are your interest, we hope you'll enjoy the many metal puzzles offered here at Frik-n-Frak's Curio Shack!
