The skew triangle is a regular skew polygon in 3D Euclidean space. Despite its name it has 6 sides and 6 vertices. It is the result of blending a triangle with a digon. Since the triangle is not 2-colorable the result has twice as many vertices and edges as the triangle.
Its edges form the diagonals of the rectangular faces of a general triangular prism.
