    Counterfeit knives are illegal to make, sell, etc. Buying one by accident is not criminal, but advocating for them is pushing the line.

    I think any further comments favorable to buying the known counterfeits will be looked upon as deliberate advocacy for illegal activity.

    Hmmm never heard of a knock off Fallkniven before. I would discourage buying it mostly because I wouldnt want my money going to a fake competitor instead of a company thats worked hard to produce their knives. Just my $0.2.

    May I suggest that you remove the direct links to the knock off site in previous post(s).

    "While Fällkniven is a Swedish company, most if not all of its production is done by subcontractors. Early F1 knives made of ATS34 steel were manufactured in Germany by Linder-Solingen. Production has been moved to Japan since Fallkniven replaced ATS34 steel with VG-10 steel in its products" thanks wikipedia.

    i mistakenly purchased a knock off fallkniven F1. i did not know it was until, i too, did some digging. for all i know it was a factory second that was resold. everything down to the box was spot on save the grind type.

    I guess it's a big problem with shoes and handbags, I guess I never figured there would be a big enough market that it would be worth the effort for knives...

    Any high dollar, cheap to produce knockoff will do. They even counterfeit fountain pens!
