    In this day and age I don't think you could design anything that wasn't similar to something else in some way! :devilzeek:ropeman::thumbsup::ropeman::devilzeek

    I don't think it's a direct or even intentional copy. I don't think Balzano pays enough attention to the knife world to know what a Southard or JWS Dauntless looks like exactly.

    It's definitely not original looking and add extra flutes doesn't make it look less like a Dauntless.

    Ok, looks like there might be more than meets the eye. This knife apparently started out as a knife for Prometheus Design Werx called the Capricorn 66. PDW is owned by Patrick Ma of TAD fame. I'm guessing that's why it looks like a Dauntless.

    The Dauntless is a general theme on which several different makers have done their own spin. It Patrick wants another variation on the theme that's his business. He started it in the first place, right?

    I honestly didn't know about this until yesterday.
    It's also no secret I've been suspicious of the gentleman in general, but as a rule I don't begrudge people if they do something note-worthy.

    Never understood the use of fullers in folding knives; you can't pry anything with them.

    Must be a USN thing

    Dude, makes them Ninja.

    They are also assembly points for Quadra-Blade. They slide in, lock together, the fourth sticks out the ass-end of the handle. Don't take my word for it, ask Mike.

    Traction maybe on the handle? And why would you want to pry with a folding knife?
