    I don`t know what is going on between them (Mat -BRS) ,but making some replacement handles for a knife does not constitute a rip off, you could easily say it`s a homage....

    The rehandle I don't care about.

    Every modder and their grandma does some type of rehandle and it's just getting some work done to a knife you already bought. Some people have problems with using other's designs for the mod work, but in this case I'm gonna agree with you as more often than not, it's the modder's take on the work being done to a different knife anyway.


    However, my comments were directed about the making of "custom" Replicants and the previously posted attempt to sell "New" Dirty Dozen Midtechs with the AB design (apparently going from the chevron to an X is a huge design change...?). Which at 2500-2800 is already a fuckin joke on it's own.

    But no, sadly Matt looks like he's going the batshit insane mixed with a heavy pour of spite route of say Exiled Cutlery and his "FU42".

    To avoid the accusation that you've copied someone elses design... why wouldnt you do something completely different than the chevron design?

    Matt clearly has the ability.

    He's considered a knife-maker, rather than a modder.

    The whole thing is weird.

    using the same logic ,as far as I know none of the BRS guys served in the Armed forces so....why they copied the chevrons which is clearly a military thing?
    I have not see any military guys go batshit crazy about it,and also I have not seen any guys say anything about a certain knife maker who has made knives that look like BRS designs
    ( a lot more than these handles do)
    for few years now....

    You pull something stretching for that one there?

    Honestly not sure who you're talking about, so gonna have to ask you to clarify who you're talking about, if you don't mind.

    Your logic is flawed.

    Chevrons were appropriated by the military but have been around for hundreds of years.

    Pointed up they're a symbol for Male and down Female.

    If the military have used them for their own balisong handle design.. then you may have a point lol.

    so they used the chevrons on a balisong first and nobody else should use it after that? why?
    As long as he doesn't try to pass it as a BRS product why it`s a problem?

    It's not a problem for Matt! Hes benefitting off a very popular design used by another balisong manufacturer.

    I suppose this type of thing is common place now anyway. The Chinese are very good at it :bwah:

    neither the barebones or the rep rehandle in the pic look like a BRS handle, even though they incorporate the chevron, so what`s your beef really?
    is there something you know that we don't?

    I dont have a "beef".

    This is a discussion forum, no?

    There are an infinite amount of original designs he could have come up with instead of biting off others.

    *** I'm keeping score an its 3-0 to me :bwah:
