Mantis Knives Gearhead in brass. OK, very cool knife. I was a 'Steam Punker' before there was such a term! This planetary gear knife fits the bill. The locking liner device did not work correctly and I had to bend the lock a little to make it work. The action is cool when not using the lever. I am old and have arthritis and the lever is a bit hard for me.  I realize the lever will be a bit stiff until broken in a bit. This is a lovely knife, and something I wanted for my collection. I will keep it in running order, that is a promise. Rating: 8/10 Kathleen E. Snowflake , AZ
