I will be listing a SuperSkewb on eBay.co.uk within the next week.
Any offers before that will be considered.

I started with a fairly new Skewb in VGC and carefully restickered with one and a half sets of 2x2x2 stickers.

Restickering is excellent. There are 12 equal edge regions and opposite edge regions are the same colour - I find this design aesthetically pleasing. The solution is unique: this is essentially a topological variation of the Skewb Ultimate.

maybe after you sell this one you could consider selling sticker sets as well.

Good idea - I have enough to make 2 sets.

Here's the 7 day ebay auction. It's priced to cover material costs.

No problem.
Small Packet Airmail outside Europe would be GBP 3.20
(Within Europe would be GBP 2.30)

Mark, how are you getting those rates?

I sent a 5x5 to US for £5...A 1kg parcel to Luxembourg cost the same to mind...

Prices are based on Royal Mail website. My 5x5x5 is twice as heavy as a Skewb when packed.
