    Why is it okay to clone a traditional, but not clone a modern knife?

    Why is it okay to clone a traditional, but not clone a modern knife?

    Those traditional designs are not "stolen". Case etc. have never claimed to have invented those patterns. In 200 years it might be perfectly acceptable to manufacture an "old timey" Manix.

    Why is it okay to clone a traditional, but not clone a modern knife?

    The authority comes from Intellectual Property law. How enforceable it is, is another question and probably varies from case to case. I am no expert in IP law.

    Why is it okay to clone a traditional, but not clone a modern knife?
