The Skewb was invented by Tony Durham. It is a puzzle that has four turning axles. It has little metal pieces in it to fix the sides into the right positions. The weight of a Skewb is normally about 150g. It is a deep vertex-cut cube; each cut divides the cube into two congruent pieces by a hexagonal plain which passes through all six faces at two adjacent edge centres.
Higher order Skewbs, named Master Skewb and Elite Skewb, have also been made. They have more layers. There is also the Skewb Diamond, Skewb Xtreme, and the Skewb Ultimate.
World Records Edit
