I have recently finished a brand new puzzle. It was my intention to make a small batch for the Dutch Cube Day in October. For reasons outside my control this now seems unlikely.

The cuts remind me a lot in the skewb ultimate when I look at it. Well, probably because it's exactly that, where the vertices are "sliced" away a bit.

Once again tony, you completely astound me with your skill and precision. If I hadn't known better, I would have thought this was a production puzzle!

Great work!

Thanks. As many of you have probably realised it is a very simple idea and I am surprised it hasn't been made before. I feel that every possiblity should be made at least once.

wait a second tony, is this a build up of a skewb/skewb ball or is this just a truncation of the skewb ultimate?
If its just a truncation, that would probably explain youre comment about the ultimate skewb ripoff site.
