Cast Elk is an excellent and another classic puzzle. Hanayama claim they found it in a British flea market and that it was around at the end of the 19th century. At that time there was a huge popularity in puzzles of every description. It has been produced by many and of varying quality over the years. This one being of cast metal is excellent in quality and feel; though if Aunt Maybelle happens to sit on it, she may not be impressed, particularly if there is also a “Woopie Cushion” under the cushion. After solving it, try taking it apart blindfolded.
