In spite of all the complexities of this brace and its patent, the ratchet mechanism of the patent does not represent the brace's ratchet. There are the adjustable ferrules all right, and the fancy jaw springs (which are often mangled, but not here), but the ratchet used is not what the patent shows, even though it's what makes the brace easy to identify.
The brace would be operationally and physically perfect, except for the loss of most of its nickel plating and the catchy peeling of a small portion. The rosewood handles are especially nice, and the ratchet is among the smoothest and easiest to operate.
