A Suggestion For Those Who Post In The Counterfeit Forum

Discuss and show off counterfeit knives here. Post pictures and share information if you spot one, or own some. Make sure to ask questions if you are not certain about the authenticity of a knife you are considering buying or selling. There are plenty of great people here willing to help.

I went through every page last night of this forum, unfortunately not being able to see all the counterfeit knives that I'd loved to have seen what was wrong with them. I think this is a great idea and I hope everyone does start doing that!

I agree. ::nod:: It's not always possible, but when it is possible if you can post a picture of the suspect knife AND explain what is wrong with it, that will help educate everyone who reads the post as to what to look for to determine a knife isn't right. Even better, if you also have an honest knife as an example of what a correct knife should look like, post a picture of it and explain the differences between it and the fake.

Counterfeiters are a plague. We collectors need to do everything legally possible to make it difficult for them to make a buck via their dishonesty. The more educated collectors there are, the fewer suckers buying fakes and the less attractive it should be to produce and sell them.

I would like to remind everyone posting a link to an eBay auction under discussion to please post the pictures of the knife in question. There has been a lot of links posted lately with no pictures posted, the information will be lost after eBay takes the photos down. Thanks ::tu::

Absolutely great idea Mr. Miller. I just rejoined after a couple years of relocating and buying/selling home(s). Glad to be back. I have couple faked Remington Girl Scouts - will try to photograph and post. I keep them around as a lesson to be more careful.

Bumping this again, it's been a year since I posted the last reminder.

Please, if you are discussing a knife on eBay post pictures of the knife!! years down the road these discussions are useless to the reader if there are no pictures to see what is being discussed!

I have seen a rash of topics recently with just a link to the knife, no pictures in the thread :( I have added pictures to several threads but I can't do them all. Thanks guys ::tu::

Everyone should know by now we do like pictures.

I've had luck putting items in my wishlist. They're stored there, unless pulled by Ebay, for future reference.

I wouldn't depend on ebay for any information you want to keep longer than about 90 days. Many of the pictures in ebay ads are not stored by ebay - the pictures are just links to outside image websites that are controlled by the seller, not ebay. If the seller deletes the picture, it disappears from the ebay listing. I have seen pictures disappear a couple of days after the auction ends.

I'm lost (a frequent event according to my wife). How does this prevent anyone from being a victim of counterfeiting? Maybe there's a trick I'm missing? ::shrug::

Just my method for tracking EBay, after posting is over, in case I want to reference item later, or follow bids, etc.

Ok I got that. Still don't follow how this has anything to do with counterfeiting. Are you saying it helps determine if a knife is counterfeit? If so, how? This thread is about counterfeits and how to help others not fall victim to them. I'm trying to learn if there's some technique I'm missing that could help me or others identify and avoid buying counterfeits ::shrug::

Sorry if I'm just dense. ::facepalm::
