Hi all,
This is my first simple skewb mod in quite a while.
I haven't touched puzzles for ages.
I wasn't sure what to call this, but decided on X-skewb due to all those exes on it's sides.

See what you think.
Vadim

Looks nice. I really love those stickers. They are like smaz's yet with a twist.

+1. Those stickers are great.

I really like the name too. A very interesting puzzle.

That's beautiful, Vadim. I love the stickers as well. What inspired the pattern on the square faces?

That's a great looking center sticker. I like that it has the same 2-fold symmetry of the piece even though it looks like the piece has a 4-fold symmetry.

It is almost a perfect rhombicuboctahedron... So, I suggest Rhombiskewboctahedron. ;)

Hmmmm...
In fact... I might get my initial V there.
Like V-skewb-X or V-Skewbex...
I'm not sure how to change this topics Title.
Can't find this option anywhere...
Can someone help?

Great puzzle Vadim. I still remember your original V-Cube and how a greater power forced you to change it's name!

Thanks, Tony.
To be honest they didn't make me to change my puzzle name, they just adopted it after having different name for years.
Oh well...
Thanks for the comment though.
I like that you still appreciate even simple mods, made by hand.
I enjoyed making it... from YOUR invention!
Thank you, Tony!
Vadim

Cool puzzle, it reminds me of my Truncated Skewb Kite, with additional cuts on all the corners.

First of all it was Smaz's "hollow" stickers.
I used rims off the blocks of 3x3x3 stickers from China.
applying stickers around the edge of the squares, I had some more of them left.
I decided to use them up.
