BS Alert on amazon: trademark infringement - Tuesday, April 18, 2017 1:28 PM ( #1 )
Found this on amazon today. https://www.amazon.com/Damascus-Steel-Laredo-Micarta-Handle/dp/B018JE7TG6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1492546744&sr=8-1&keywords=b018je7tg6
It's advertised as a damascus "Cold Steel Laredo Bowie". Moderators, please let Lynn Thompson and CS legal staff know about it. They are infringing on Cold Steel's trademark. It might be legal if they changed the name, but any profits they made out of it to this point should be confiscated. 

Check out one of the comments: it says the buyer thought it really was a CS product! Wow, why don't people do their homework before they buy.

Technically the description says custom knife so there may be an issue.idk. I'm no lawyer.

Don't see how they can get away with using "Damascus Steel Cold Steel Laredo Bowie Black Micarta Handle" as
the product description. That's outright misrepresentation.

Yes, it's pretty outrageous. They're using CS name and the name of a CS knife to trick people into buying their crap.
