Hey Guys! So a few weeks back I got a Gear Octahedron. When I bought it off of hknowstore.com, it was labeled "Oskar's Gear Octahedron". True to it's name, it did have an Oskar sticker slapped over the white face. Upon further research, I discovered that Mr. Deventer himself wasn't even selling it on his shapeways shop and instead had a different model of a gear cube in which you could turn the actual corners. Looking further still, I found that LanLan sells a cube remarkably similar to what I bought (The only difference is the stickering) Any thoughts one whether its a knock off or not?

OKay, so, on another note, It is a rather well made cube. It doesn't catch, the stickers haven't peeled yet, and it turns quite well. I am, however, having troubles solving the puzzle. I have solved it twice. Unfortunately, I think it was by sheer luck rather than me knowing what I was doing. I can get as far as 2 corners being unsolved. they are in the right positions, just not oriented properly.

These are just various pictures of it's current state. I can get the puzzle to this state but after that, I don't know what to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
