This is the Compy Skewb. It is a combination of the Skewb and the Compy Cube (shallow cut Dino Cube). It was conceived after a suggestion from Carl Hoff (wwwmwww on twistypuzzles.com) to make visible all internal parts of my Dino Skewb. The puzzle looks like a cubic Elite Skewb but it only has four layers. The tips do not turn on their own, they are linked to the internal Skewb. This allows them to display both the internal Skewb's corner orientation and permutation. If you want a puzzle with trivial tips, then it is easy enough to use a blade and cut off the blocking part.
This puzzle was suggested to me by Carl Hoff. Visit his shop for more puzzles.

The quality of this puzzle is excellent. Rotation and stability are both very good. This puzzle comes as a DIY kit. You will need to assemble it, supplying your own stickers, screws, springs and washers (M3). You can purchase stickers from www.dr-sticker.com - just ask him, he already has my template. Buying this only gets you the plastic pieces. Alternatively, contact me directly (firstname.lastname@example.org
) to purchase a fully assembled and stickered puzzle.
