Counterfeit Benchmade Axis Lock Censored On Ebay

Fake Axis LockFake Axis Lock

Benchmade’s Axis lock is built like a brick shithouse. It is also, of course, patented. Chinese manufacturers (of software, electronics, car parts, or anything else) don’t really give a damn about patents or copyrights, and this ersatz Benchmade 860 Bedlam shamelessly copies the Axis locking mechanism. But they don’t want to make it too obvious, so their eBay ads are spotted with little smiley-faces.

Because nobody would ever think that was odd.

Here’s a de-smiley’d photo of the same knife, clearly showing the purloined Axis lock.

Just another example of how much counterfeit garbage is bought and sold on eBay. And how anything that seems too good to be true, like this 90%-off Benchmade, probably really is too good to be true.

    But for some, that’s close enough. I get catalogs with really low-priced knives–won’t buy those.

  2. Paul B says:

    Anything the Chinese find on the internet they think they can make a buck on they will copy….And these people are our friends?

  3. Matt in FL says:

    I like how the first photo has the line “Lock Mechanism: Axis” crudely, but not completely erased.

    You know Bill Clinton (communist) while in office gave China our complete patent office for free….. Shows us a little of our current problems like no jobs, crime out of control …Thanks Bill Clinton he started the down fall of America……..The answer is to tax imports (slave labor) , get rid of the IRS,U.N.,end free public Education, end EPA, get rid of the Dept. of Education,and get rid of Fed.Res. and use real money like gold and silver! stop the flow across our borders of 3 rd world peoples to get free hand outs like free ed.s free medical… and end this useless gun control acts.. We would get billions of blessings…The ANSWER not to hard is it….

  5. Paul B says:

    +1…Stop all foreign aid…..does not help and pisses of the aidee…..We need to start breaking some shit…
