The spoke Nip has 4 sides and 4 corners.. and it's not a Box wrench.
Park Tool calls it a "four sided" spoke wrench...and with good reason. It may have an open side to get it on the spoke but that's only a partially open side compared to a regular spoke wrench. Since it engages all 4 corners of the spoke nipple, it's closer to having 4 sides than a regular spoke wrench.
