    Anyone ever hear of these guys? They are supposedly making knives in Maricopa, Arizona.
    I saw one of their knives designs that I was a little interested in but I’ve never heard of them.

    Never heard of them but googled their knives. The UDT looks like the bastard child of a Bastinelli and a Lansky World Knife.

    Is this not a Chinese Microtech clone like 10,000 others, or am I missing something?

    I actually just got on here to make a thread about this. I messaged the seller more or less just stated that it was obvious what he was doing and that it's dishonest to lie about country of origin AND material components. His response was:

    /eyeroll

    I'd dismiss it as some idiot's poor business idea, but he does seem to be actually selling these rebranded clones at a reasonable pace, and his feedback is pretty good for a person who is clearly lying about the knives being CTS-XHP and made in the US.

    Also, this "company" exists entirely on eBay as far as I can tell. There isn't so much as a Facebook page. I'm pretty sure this is one guy buying them in bulk, putting a logo on them, and selling them at what looks like a ~100% markup.

    Its the Arizon... lesser known sister jungle to the Amazon. Drier though, but the natives are way friendlier.

    The logo is literally a stock image from shutterstock.

    Nice. At least they came up with a brilliant slogan to go with it:

    This is my favorite overkill, incidentally:

    I just realized the MT clone has the ol' ruler in the photo. I don't think he even took his own pictures of the knives lol.

    I don't know why this is such a valid rule, but it totally is.

    A knife is always a fake if there is a ruler in the photo.

    They don't even look that high quality... I'd expect more being made in Arizon!!

    Nice RIP OFF/CLONES.
    He took a Microtech Stitch Clone and called it by the name of another Microtech knife, the UDT ( LUDT, MUDT, Mini UDT ).
    According to a member above he didn’t even get his own logo. Total class act.
    His response to being called out was a perfect example of why some people just suck. He’s a liar, and I’m my opinion a thief for selling the knives as his own ideas and designs.
    I’m glad to hear that he took his web page down, hopefully not before Tony Marfione saved the images he’d need to sue the turd.
    I hear that he’s pretty aggressive in protecting his intellectual property.
