Dumbbell Skewb
Click a thumbnail to see its larger version and description.
Two Skewbs (or better: Holey Skewbs) connected with a complex mechanism. Every turn is followed by one turn of the other Skewb.

After Oskar's Dumbbell Skewb this is the second implementation of a puzzle for intellectual weight lifters. In this case the designer connected two Holey Skewbs. As a result one move on one skewb is linked to a move on the second Skewb.
The "holeyness" of the skewbs guarantee that the user can take a look into the puzzle's mechanism.
There are only two different configurations to connect the four moves of both skewbs. One of these configurations is useless because the second skewb is always solved after the first one and therefore does not pose a new challenge in solving. Obviously the designer decided for the second configuration.
Edge length (skewb): 60 mm
Grip length: 120 mm
Weight: 237 grams
