Flood of "damascus" Native ripoffs
We've seen these before - and marveled at their intricate "neo-damascus patterned" blades. These Hong Kong-based sellers are getting a bit wiser and listing these now as "no-brand" knives. Still the hole and design are direct violations of Spyderco patents... This time, there appears to be a dozen or more for sale, starting at $0.99!
Wonder how they make a profit selling at that price?
Also, the handle design is from an earlier Spyderco design I think. Wonder whether they made the moulds from scratch.
