Very nice! However, this has been created before. I can't remember by who, but I remember looking at a ton of skewb mods on youtube made by the same member and this was one of them. I also can't remember what it was named.

I believe this was originally made by Tony Fisher or Andreas Nortman. I know Tony had a hexagonal skewb but it may have had different cuts.

Tony Fisher's version which, according to him, was made in March 2002.

@all
Thanks for the nice comments.

@clauswe
Since my mod looks alot like Tony´s version, I am only going to do it one time selling on ebay (may be next week) but not anymore.
But I will count it as a "puzzle made in 2010" for my building list :D

May be you like more the "evil twins!" I will show today in a new thread and set up an auction for it. Watch out :!:
