    Pics are bad but I don't see a place for LH carry

    I would have to agree with you on this one, rycen. No cutouts for LH carry screams "Fake!" in my book as well. While most fakes are fairly easy to spot, the UKPK fakes are some of the "best" knockoffs I've seen as far as accuracy is concerned.

    +1. Assuming the knife being sold is the one in the photos, then it's definitely a fake. There are no cuts for LH carry, so the chances of it being real are zero.

    Seems like the seller doesnt really have an idea if it's real or not, either he doesnt know or is playing dumb to get it out of his hands (highly possible considering the price).

    Sent him a message on eBay, he replied, said he was going to pull the auction, and has.

    It has the same "flaws" as the others I have listed. One big clue though easy to overlook at quick glance is no slots for LH carry.

    Hmm... seeing how these fakes seem to be getting better and better---doesn't pointing out the dead giveaways on a public forum help the bad guys perfect their counterfeit goods(bads in this case ).

    I really don't think the bad guys need the forum to find out what they are doing wrong. I am sure they have the capability to counterfit a perfect replica if they really wanted to. The idea behind the fake is to create a cheaper produced product and try and pass it off as a more expensive item. If they fixed every flaw in the product, why not just build the real thing.

    If they got it that close I am sure they could have made it 100% if they cared to.My thread is here to warn potential buyers what to look out for.

    Well, in the case of this example, if the other side had clip cutouts it would be even harder to identify it as a fake. It obviously has people fooled. They even etched Sal's logo on the blade... jackass counterfeiters.
