Hello, today someone gave me this metallic puzzle that looks like a take apart puzzle, and I don't know nothing about it, if I apply some force in one side, it moves a little.
Anyone knows what puzzle is and how to open it? Thanks!

It's a Dovetail Cube Puzzle and a Google search will show you the solution and/or how to build one. But beware that there are actually two different versions (with two different solutions).

Spoiler alert, click at your own risk of spoiling the fun of discovering the solution by yourself:

Lovely! I've seen many different dovetail type puzzle before but never seen this one. Is it new & available? How big is it actually?

I managed to open it! Very interesting.
The puzzle is not that big ( 5 cm * 5cm *4cm) but heavy, I thing that the 'lev dies' company gave them to customers like a gift so i don't really know!

There are, as far as I know, 3 different versions of this puzzle. I got mine from Wil Strijbos as a set and they are really stunning - each has a different opening mechanism (which I'll not reveal here).
