Spyderco clones - gone!
Just noticed that Fasttech has removed nearly all the spyderco clones from the site - possibly under duress from spyderco or maybe too many are getting confiscated at customs.
Shame as I had my eye on a couple.

I got a C94 in October from here. For 6.63 ok, but nothing to loose sleep over.
Ali has some better clones.

^absolutely correct. Mr Baba is the man to see if you're looking for a high quality AAA counterfeit knife.

No PITS clone anymore :( Except the stiff opening that's a nice little folder, maybe a Spyderco Made in China sprint run :P
But you can still hae the wonderful SR ball lock knife SKU 1678410

Well seriously, I won't touch any SR knives unless get them for free :P

Er -no. They are ganzo's - they are not exact copies and don't have spyderco markings on them so are perfectly legit. It's the clones that Fasttech has removed from sale.

er yeah I know. :P the Ganzo Firebird F759M & F729 do resemble the Manix 2 & delica but as you say not identically.

Btw these spyderco clone's you speak of. how long ago were they listed? I just went through the entire catalog of both ft & the best of gear place 2 or 3 days ago & don't recall seeing spyderco logo'd knives.
I wouldn't mind getting an actual manix2 copy or other spyderco alike.

I purchased the one below in October:



- if you search for the SKU number now a totally different knife is listed !!

There were a lot of clones listed about a week ago but when I looked yesterday they had nearly all gone - there's only 2 left by my (quick) count.

The logos are usually photoshopped out in the pictures.
You won't find much in the way of clones on that other place but I did get a brother mid lock a couple of weeks ago which I am positive is the discontinued Byrd Cara Cara model.

I have bought several spdc clones. Pretty good quality.
But unbelievably disappeared with no trace as if they were never exist. Seeing this It must be because of the copy right problem.
Bye clones of spdc.

Maybe fasttech wants to sell legitimate Spyderco or Byrd knives someday soon?
