Let's see your cheapo copies that make us appreciate the big-brand multitool manufacturers all the more.

Ideally, photo comparisons to the "real thing" would be great and I've managed to accumulate a few to get the ball rolling....

Wave v Wavalike:




Micra v Micralike:




Juice v Juicalike:




Crunch v Crunchalike:



Altogether:

nice pictorial comparisons!

Do any of them come close to their copied makes in terms of quality?

Nice Wave too :D

That Micra copycat looks a bit rough in the scissor hinge. The Juice copy has more beef in the plier head. It's also weird how the Crunch copy pliers don't extend out like the branded ones do thru the side opening.

Actually my neighbor gave it to me, he's such a nice guy..  :)
But the 2CR frame is very close to the original... :think:

Those "Stainless 2CR" markings are on loads of Chinese tools. The Juicalike above has them, as does a Schrade branded tool I picked up a while back. I seem to recall Bob saying he had seen loads with it too.

Leatherman Mini-Tool vs. Mini-Tool Like.
















The copy on the right sure makes me appreciate the real thing on the left. Note how they haven't figured out that the notches could also be a bottle opener and a can opener. The copy is also larger and has no markings. But it is easy to tell which model they tried to copy.

A little Leatherman information.

That's the first Mini copy I've seen. The fact that they've cut away the handles and NOT made them into anything useful like a bottle opener, is frankly funny - why did they bother? :D Nice one Chako.

Dennis sent me that (not as a real Juice I hasten to add, we are still talking). ;)

I strongly suspect from someone in Hong Kong off of eBay.

A copy of the AutoTool? I thought my Mini copy was odd.

This is what  you get when the Chinese cross a Vic cybertool with a Gerber Multi-lite?

The head looks pretty good. The handles feel cheaper and some of the tools are different. Check out the typical poorly mad chinese phillips.

It also has leatherman type knurled bolts instead of bear torx head.

It's not nearly as well made as the gerber version. You can just call it Chinese . They forgot to   put a lite in this :D
