    Fake lefty military ?

    I was just wondering if anyone has heard of or seen a fake left handed military. I just one off of eBay since they're discontinued and that was the only place I could find one. Nothing seems off to me, but after reading some post on how good the fakes are I was a little concerned. I wouldn't think that taking the time to make a lefty fake would make much sense, but you never know.

    Anything is possible, but I've never seen a fake LH.

    I try to keep an eye out for updates on fakes (comp lock Paras) and any new ones out there (Southard, Domino).I have not seen a fake lefty.

    It seems unlikely that it would be worth their while from a volume standpoint as well.

    So, congrats on the pick-up! I always thought the Military would be too large and wasn't really interested, but then the lefty went on sale and I figured for $99 I should pick one up while I had the chance. So glad I did, it is awesome.

    A fake LH Military does sound implausible from a sales/profit standpoint. Perhaps the one advantage us lefties have in regard to folders.

    I missed out on one on ebay recently, perhaps the one you got. Congrats!
