I was messing around tonight and made a new Skewb shape mod. Like with my previous one, I do not have the money to 3D print this currently although I may have a sponsor to help, but for the time being I hope renderings will do. It has the standard skewb inner mechanism and may feature some parity situations with the ability to swap some centers and edges as well as center and corner orientations being able to vary. I hope you like it and I appreciate any and all feed back.

Like my SkewFO, this one also has an alternate stickering pattern when one layer is turned 180 degrees. I call this variant the Peace Barrel:
