A pillowed version of the 5x7x7. Made from a 7x7x7.

The inventor made this puzzle by gluing the top two and bottom two layers of a mass-produced 7x7x7 together and then truncating the puzzle, hence creating the pillowing and the unconventional cut pattern on the top two layers. This cuboid shapeshifts on two axes, and when fully scrambled only 5x5x5 turns may be made due to the bandaging.
The 78 mm cubic 7x7x7 can be cut down by 7 mm still with olzing on 3 types of pieces and 8 mm at maximum without pillowing, but giving each top and bottom piece too weirdly shaped. The earlier pillowed 7x7x7 could not be cut down as deep and gave too pillowed look.
