Product Description
Six to Three is a six-banded puzzle ring, designed by Bram Cohen

"Hey Oskar, I came up with the attached puzzle ring design the other day. This one is also taking things in a different direction, in that it's six bands where each one is linked to the three which it isn't next to, and everything comes apart easily, sort of the opposite of the other new one I sent you where each band is connected specifically to the ones next to it and it only comes apart via a holistic move. I'm not sure how this one discombobulates, and have no idea how hard it might be."

As we learned from the prototype, the answer is "very hard".
