I’m don’t support clones/counterfeits.
When I try to look at the issue as impartial as I can, the negative aspects of clones outweighs the good. Here’s my outlook:
The good thing about clones seems to be that people are able to try or afford a knife without paying full price.
The bad things...
-Snapped the tip off by prying like crazy
-Didn’t use the warranty or even think about sending it in
Surprised such a small, thin bladed, liner-less knife held up as well as it did. Abuse broke it.
