The Dino Skewb is a combination of two famous puzzles, the Dino Cube and the Skewb. The Dino Skewb's mechanism is based on my Tetrahedral Twins (also available from my shop).

This is, to my knowledge, the first ever Dino Skewb. It looks exactly like a Lattice Cube (Master Dino), but it is quite different. A Lattice Cube turns like a Dino Cube with turning tips.
My Dino Skewb does not have those turning tips but, contrary to the Lattice Cube, it does have the deep cut of a Skewb. The turning on the Skewb cuts is great, the Dino cuts have a little click to them because I needed the pieces to overlap a little to prevent gaps from appearing. I choose aesthetics over functionality in this case. But it isn't bad at all. The puzzle can be a little squishy at times, but overall I'm very pleased with the result. 

This item is for a DIY kit only - it only contains the plastic 3D printed pieces, you will need to supply your own M3 springs/screws to assemble this puzzle and also supply your own stickers (available from Dr. Sticker). Alternatively, you can order fully assembled and stickered puzzles from me at tom@tomvanderzanden.nl.
