Hi Bill, Can you help me ID this knife? Age? Coating? Steel?

That logo is laser engraved, I've never had that mark laser engraved, it's always been electro chemical etched which is dark.
I didn't make that knife.


Edited to add: It is also not in any way an "authorized by me" project.

Bill, I thought that might be the case. Several things bothered me.
Mark placement
Mark font
blade finish
handle finish
Lanyard grommet material


I did purchase the knife to get it out of circulation. I loosened the scales last night. There was a black line next to the scale and it looked like it might be a sharpie mark. Turned-out to be a a piece of paper. One side painted black, the other partially black but showing a corner of "stick writing"! (I'm not really a PC guy).

This particular knife is now off the market forever. If you would like the knife send anywhere for analysis, etc. just LMK.

Have you reported this forgery to whichever (presumably online) market from which you purchased this?

I let the seller know he had a counterfeit, he chose to threaten to sue me for defamation or some such bs and was happy to sell it anyway.

Well you may want to contact the FBI and let them know what Mr. Happy said when you informed him it was a fake.

Its one thing to sell a fake in good faith not knowing it is a fake, but his actions tell me he knew it was a fake. The FBI might be intrested and this might be the break they need you never know.

About as useful as the "gov" telephone "OPT OUT". The FBI and Customs work for the NFL to stop fake jerseys and if you're not an NFL owner, forget them actively working a fake knife case.
