    Congrats to Jay. I'm jealous that they haven't copied my stuff.

    I used to be on an off roader forum and there was a group of guys from Pakistan that would post work from their shop. All they basically had was an oxy acetylene torch and hand tools like hammers and such. They loved old FJ cruisers, but couldn't afford them. So they would take the bodies off Jeeps and just make all new sheetmetal so it looked just like an FJ. And they made everything, trim, door handles, little bits and pieces, everything. And it looked great. Better than some of the work other shops were cranking out with all the cool tools you could ever want.

    If Jay kept his knives simple, they'd be pretty killer.

    That's a good one Rick.

    And Dave, first of all those first two knives are no where near the same. One has 23 holes and the other has 22. Completely different.

    Btw, I know in Indonesia, expats will regularly take take pictures of furniture from catalogs or magazines and the woodworkers there will replicate it. I've heard the same thing happening with shoes in the Philippines. It could be that some expat or soldier in Pakistan asked the person to copy his knives, and now he reproduces them for eBay.

    the philippines thing is usually a bunch of chinese business owners taking advantage of the skilled workers that my country has and copying other people's work and passing them off as the real thing.

    The DT has alot of material left for some more holes, just look at the tip and heel... would be easy to fit 10-15 holes in there.
