    This is just not fair , I don't want to make a profit , I just like the design for my personal use ( which is not patented) and as I understand it may take years to get one from Olexey ( if at all )

    Well......I do appreciate the interest in my work. Seriously. Thank you.


    I don't think too many makers will step up and volunteer to make an exact copy of another makers knife. I wish I had time to make you one but unfortunately I could not get to it within a reasonable amount of time.

    I will say that I have no problem with someone making you a version of that particular design, (Super Pry prototype).


    Thanks again for the interest and good luck with your search.

    Scimitar:

    I think you will have a hard time finding a maker that will purposely copy another's design. Patent or not. At least not in the US. It's frowned upon by just about every knifemaker I have ever known. But I got to tell you..... coming here in the JD and asking for members to copy another member's design was way over the top.:devilroll::tardball:

    Knife

    Guys,
    Thank you all for the invaluable feedback .But I think it's time to let it go. I got the point . Then got it again . And again and again.
    In the end I"ll design my own knife and have it made.
    And by the way I can think of a few truly great knifemakers , highly respected names who had their designs copied over and over again and don't seem to have any problem with it.
    So thanks again and get off my case.

    Name one, please name one respected knife maker who had his design copied and didn't have an issue with it:devilzeek And by the way I wouldn't have weighed in on this till you told us to back off.
    I understand how someone from a country that has a history of copying/ripping off designs could have your attitude, but I don't have to put up with it. Example of an Israeli copied design? The Uzi, originally a Czechoslovakian design that Uzi took and made work.

    I thought the whole thread was pretty civil.....a little righteous abuse but just as much polite redirection.


    I've seen much worse for sure :grinyes:

    excuse this from a newb but one of the best things in my life was to watch the gent who taught me blade makin ( Neil Charity) dress down a bloke at a small town market for doing that ( copying his work ) Neil, wrote a book and put three designs in it for anyone to copy , but not the rest ... he did it very politely , not a swear word at all , the bloke who made the copies i have never seen since anywhere , seems everywhere he went , folks reminded him of the dressing down ..

    i make and sell one of the Neil Charity designs from the book , his Jackaroo ( one of the three he generously allowed anyone to copy)

    ( bottom two in this pic ) but they are all referred to as the Neil Charity designed Jackaroo's and thats printed on the label on the box

    even though i've changed it a bit here and there ( anyone who knows his work will see they are based , but not 100% copied , from the book ) and carry the jackaroo name that Neil gave them so folks KNOW where the idea came from ..

    [​IMG]

    to do otherwise or to make any of his other designs not in the book would be ripping him off in my opinion ..
