With the original designer’s permission, we’re producing limited numbers of the QTR-1 “H.M. Murdock” and we’re excited to show enthusiasts around the Country what a little extra ingenuity will do to the performance of an already exceptional knife design.
That's my thinking. Quartermaster is the Pontiac of GM. They market a slightly fancier Camaro and call it a Firebird and sell the same car for a little more money.46Alpha wrote:This was covered over on BF, most agree that "Quatermaster" is just a Mantis off-shoot.

Eh, It's off topic.. It's fine. The "100% usa made" is a great selling point though for the Quartermaster knives, despite what business ethics they're practicing.Chipped Karambit wrote:Is copying a copy still copy??
Mantis blatantly ripped of the Minipocket Rocket (i love that name!) and named it like the pit boss and listed it as 154cm/s30v/440v/cpm154 (Got caught with it not being it) now quatermaster is doing it again. I am not sure what to think about it.
I am probably going with it is the same company just trying to do poor business ethics.
I will post the shane siberts custom version picture of the production model that was ripped off (Not sure if its cool to post competitions blades on here)
I seriously doubt that with their past business ethics. They have been caught lying about steel and production before. it just seems like there is something up. Especially looking at the prices. CPM154cm steel blade at 5mm thick (hinders mid techs are around there and hit 400s) and a 58-60 hrc at 88 bucks(probably 75 bucks bladehq), some things dont add up. Especially since it is made in america then a knife that has 3 thumbstuds??? or a subliminal lock?? it locks in your mind not in real life I guess /=Jeremy_A_Neel wrote:Eh, It's off topic..
