You da man! And thanks, Iron, for reporting this.
It's the first time I've seen Chinese sellers try to sell counterfeits for full price.
They're getting smart!
..... his name is Andy.....did you expect ANYTHING less...
But he's not from Austria.
....but aspires to be !
I guess we can't all be perfect.
I recently bought a couple esee knives from The Knife Guy on eBay and noticed that the esee 3 and esee 4 Knife I bought doesn't have the orange liner or liner at all and was wondering if these might be fake I can send some pictures. The esee 3 has canvas Micarta handles and the esee 4 is a Clip point which said it's supposed to be linen Micarta handles but they are hard to like G10 handles. They also have 5 digit serial numbers
These are the descriptions on the listing s
They look legit but that's hard to verify with only one angle showing half of the knife.
Thanks for the quick reply because if I can have a little re-insurance if they're real I will keep them because I was thinking of sending them back, just bought them. here are some actual pictures of the actual knives the rat one has a rough coating on it I thought the rat one came with a smooth coating or maybe it's just the old rat one's came with the smooth coating, not sure.
@Jeff Randall @shaneadams90
I don't see anything that looks off. I'm not familiar with Ontario knives so I can't help there.
Ok thanks for your response, I appreciate it
Do you know anything about the knife guy on eBay if they sold any fake esee 3 or 4 knives before?
Sorry for the multiple messages, I don't what I'm doing over here
He is listed as "knifeguy78"
No specific knowledge of that seller but it is worth noting that I don't yet think any "fake" versions of the 3 or 4 have shown up thus far, they have been Izulas or knives obviously not an ESEE model.
Thank you for feedback means a lot to me, that's what I thought just wanted to ask the professionals because I just bought 4 esee knives, but my next knives I buy is going to be from this site or your recommend dealers. Thanks again
