Wow, this looks like a straight rip-off of the Force Two from Pohl Force.

I agree! I searched comments to see if it was being discussed.

Huh. It kinda does, doesn't it? I mean there's enough differences that it's legal and not a genuine clone, and the Force Two's more stylized in non-trivial ways, but yeah, that's gonna put some folks off buying it.

Not me though. My own personal rule in a case like this where someone's making a budget copy of a knife that's no longer in production or has an extravagant cost that's meant to render it an exclusive item for the wealthy: go hard or go home. I'm not shopping for a clone but if they've got their own brand on it, I don't mind so long as they're actually making a good knife that people can afford. The folks that are gonna pick this up are not the ones that now have a Pohl Force Mike Five in their pocket. No, they're the people who are happy to buy Ganzos, and Land 910s and other affordable reliable copies of knives that cost out the schnozz to buy an original, because they have less than $50 and need a good knife. If it sucks, all bets are off, of course. But Defcon's made some decent knives before. Figure I'm still in.

Definitely heavy inspiration. But I don't think anyone is going to mistake the two.
