Santini are 'famous' for their copy's, they also made a thing that looks a lot like a Vita.

There's also this:

Which was once described on this forum as 'the poor mans fluke' (can't find the post, so I don't know who to credir)

I'd say that's just another boat paddle shaped uke

I agree with bazmaz on this one. I wouldn't call that a copy, just a boat paddle shape.

I have a uke that is the same shape, but all aromatic cedar. It is an easy shape to use. I know Brad Donaldson has made a student uke in the same shape since it is so much easier to make.

Yeah, I would not consider that a copy. I think it is pretty classic. Flukes and Fleas have a distinctive look as well as materials used :)
