A Couple Fake eBay Sellers. - Thursday, September 29, 2016 6:24 PM ( #1 )
OK I thought I would give folks a heads up on a couple of eBay sellers.  Both are selling Fake CS straight from AliEspress. Now these sellers have 100% positive feedback but the items are fake. Go figure.  I assure everyone that all three of these are clones.

1: sharperedgesrus.  two items he is selling

http://www.ebay.com/itm...g:R0UAAOSwFe5Xzugr 


The other Fake item is a fake Trailmaster with a custom sheath.  http://www.ebay.com/itm/Cold-Steel-Trailmaster-Knife/302072218025?_trksid=p2055119.c100022.m2048&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20140122153519%26meid%3Dfeef6808d23540eb8eb25bc34d28dad1%26pid%3D100022%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D2%26sd%3D262638289951
The trouble with having an open mind, of course, is that people will insist on coming along and trying to put things in it.

Way to go, name them and shame them. It's the only way.

Another eBay seller with 100% rating selling fakes. This time Fake AK47's.  lonestar27mark

eBay has gotten so bad about allowing Fake Sellers, your no longer (at least I am not) allowed to report fake CS products.

We seem to pick them out quite easily, but then we're about the biggest fans and experts too, grin. For someone whoe doesn't spend half it's time studying Cold Steel and it's history the fakes probably look like an excellent deal.

There are so many fakes right now, especially on Ebay. I can usually spot them, but lately there are some that are scarily close to the real thing. I used to post links on this forum. Lately there are so many it would take too much time to post them here.

 Even if they are legit, the seller can easily use a picture of the real thing and send you a fake.

 I have a standing offer. If any forum member or guest is in doubt, I will verify if the picture is of a genuine Cold Steel product
I have been flipping Cold Steel products for years. That, combined with 20+ years as a QC manager, allows me to spot subtle
differences.

But, as the saying goes "If it sounds to good to be true...."
