Default Re: I'll Bet Fred West Knows...

Long story short, Fred is right, Tom feels that WC basically pirated Toms designs and had them made in China.
I agree. While his are based on Stanley designs, they're still his improvements, his name, his marketing. And those Stanleys are long out of production. The Woodriver brand stuff, briefly, was displayed side by side in the store next to the LNs.
Though in the end, I doubt this hurts LN much at all. I think its the right call and his clientele will view it as such.
