    There was a Bushcraft gear place in England selling a complete rip off of the Tops Lil wolf Wolf, Werewolf, Ninja wolf, scout wolf, Folkwolfe, peter and the wolf, big bad wolf...anyway it was something wolf, I called Tops they got a hold of the shop and shut it down I'm not really into that but buying Copies, Bootlegs, pirated, re pop, counterfeit anything is just bad form and dont help anything with gear or Info always consider the source factory seconds are a differant story but they should be described as that many of the Outlet type places with such great deals are selling seconds I have some PatgucciGoninia layers I bought in Cabazon Cali at the Patagroinia Outlet that would pop up everything in it was cut tag seconds but its lasted more years than I ever imagined and have got alot of use out of that stuff... they make a batch the color is of or slight stitching prob and it goes to the outlet they cant melt it down even though it would look great if they said that in the Awesome catalog lol Look at a Campmore catalog they are very up front on that stuff



    In Other words I'd pass

    Not all Chinese made stuff is junk. I have some knives and other gear that are quite good. Many are made in Chinese factories under the supervision of American engineers and carry good names. In this case, however, it isn't a knife made on the order of an older design but one purporting to be an original and that is fraud, plain and simple. I wouldn't touch it at any price. I think Pap11 said what I think about the matter.

    I don't mind imitations, just about every knife company in the world has made an imitation of the Buck 110. Just as lon as they don't have the actual companies logo and try to pass it as the real thing.

    But when you startn making knock offs, putting on the trademark logos, and selling it as an original I don't agree with it.

    make a k nife that looks like the F1, but keep the fallkniven name and logo off of it.

    I haven't attacked you for asking the question. With less experience with fallkniven I may have been caught out too.

    Its one thing if a brand is making something to compete with a product in a similar market. Its a whole other thing when they are deceiving people into believing this is that exact product..

    This hurts good companies every where and the sellers should not be supported. Eventually it costs people their jobs.

    If people still want to buy this stuff hey knock yourself out but as I said "you get what you deserve"

    If you want a cheaper knife that is tried and tested from a reputable company get a condor or a mora. Support people and companies who are working hard to give you great products.

    These people do not deserve your money.

    I agree with all of you, and have no desire to support counterfit knives.

    The reason I posted this is because it looked just like a real Fallkniven, I wondered if these were maybe factory seconds or something like that.

    I have a F1 with that leather sheath. I've had it for a couple of years. I think I paid $120 for it. I would say the pictures look real, but those could have been swiped from anywhere. I believe they were, they they are not sharp. I can see the lamination line, but that doesn't mean anything.

    If it was me, I would stay away from this "deal". If it seems to good to be true, it probably is. Buyer beware I guess. If you wave $30 to throw away, have at it.
