A Skewb with rectangular centers and four enlarged corners.

This puzzle utilizes a special property which made the Skewb possible in first place. The eight corners of the Skewb can be divided into two sets with four corners each. These sets can't be intermingled. Therefore the two sets are implemented mechanically different. Comparably the skewb faces can only be twisted by 180° not 90°.
For the Offset Skewb one set of corners was reduced and the other set enlarged. The Cubominx has a similar but more radical concept.
Edge length: 55 mm
