The Half Truncated Cube is one of the most popular shapes a 3x3x3 can be truncated into. In this case the creator gave this variant a new twist. He added one layer of cubies to three of the puzzle's sides to give one the illusion of a half truncated 4x4x4.
The shape of this puzzle closely matches the chamfered tetrahedron.
