    I've known this guy's knives were fakes since noting he's located in a country noted for producing clones of American branded shoes and sporting equipment.

    But to reverse the argument, isn't America cloning what many Filipinos believe to be a type of knife intrinsic to their culture?

    There is a huge difference between cloning and making the same type of knife, if a car company makes a new car, woopdy doop, but if it's car is an exact copy of another company's car, that a clone and that is a problem

    Exactly. Sometimes it's hard to draw the line but taking a functional design and making it your own is all fine and dandy. Taking someone else's design and explicitly copying it is bullshit. They put the hard work into designing it and you have no fucking right to leach off their hard work without putting any thought of your own into it. We can delve into this further and go on about "inspiration" but fuck that.

    You can't steal a traditional knife design. We ALL know the difference between authentic Pinoy balisongs and American made balisongs which are often made to much more exacting standards and better materials. To my knowledge, there are no "counterfeit" pinoy bali's floating around because of a high demand, nor are there any up-to-date patents out there concerning their design.
    As far as the culture argument, you can't control what other cultures adapt from your culture. Everybody acknowledges that the birth of the modern balisong was started by Les De Asis, a Philippino-American. Would it be better if he hadn't started Balisong USA/PCC/Benchmade because that way the culture wouldn't be contaminated?
    We're talking about intellectual property and/or deliberately trying to mislead people with merchandise that isn't authentic, not culture.

    Just to further mr nathans point a bit, the americanized flippers are a branch, and are adding to what balisong were, clones add nothing, they are just steeling.

    The link that was posted also displayed pics of clones, anything pertaining to a clone such as photos links etc. Is not permitted here.

    Here's the thing.... you are catching the flack you deserve because your "friend", whom you are promoting here, is making fake AB's. BRS has done more for the current balisong scene and us flippers than just about anyone I can think of. They have proven over and over that they are all about making a quality balisong (and now other knives), going above and beyond for their customers, and making themselves extremely accessible... all while reasonably pricing their knives. While in a perfect world, this is how knife companies should conduct themselves.... unfortunately most do not.

    Their product, on top of their customer support and ethos, creates a very loyal user and fanbase. So when you come in here posting pics of your "friends" bullshit that you support and align yourself with, then it should be no surprise when you receive negativity. Honestly, I'm surprised there aren't more folks thumping on you.


    As previously stated, I continue to wish your friend an early transmission failure and a bag of dicks for dinner... but if you had any respect for BRS and the flipping community, YOU would call him on his fuckery... instead of buying his fakes and promoting his business.
