After seeing the last few posts about split ring pliers I really started wondering... Are these "Manufatures" just buying pre-designed product or are the overseas plants branding them differently without permission. I apologize in advance if this is a touchy subject... The Duel GT split ring pliers look exactly like the Braid split ring pliers. Duel Braid I also noticed that the HPA regular pliers. Look just like a pair of cheap shakespears I got for christmas... HPA Shakespear I noticed some other ones as well but I figured this would get my question across.
