I'm a big puzzler. I agree that Stave puzzles are amazing, but to get one of their nontraditional, more interesting puzzles you'll have to spend a few hundred dollars. The Wentworth I have are well made wooden puzzles, matching the Staves in quality of cutting but not in inventiveness. Pomegranate are well constructed. Springbok have traditionally been a good value but the designs have become increasingly schlocky and the boxes skimpier. I have a couple of nice puzzles from Galison, NY and Schmid. The Galison have interesting designs, the Schmid have nice thick puzzle pieces.
