Fakes?

  • Crowley357 Sunday, June 20, 2010 5:12 PM Reply
    Some of the products in DX are etched as "Böker" or other brands. Are there fakes or slightly defective material sold by the manufacturer in a secondary market?
    I've seen that happening in my country, and the reviews make this theory solid, as far as I can reach.

    It depend on the sku you buy.

    Dudes- check out this link to Bokers own website and see for yourself...

    EDIT: Link removed- I thought that might happen. oh well. The bokers sold here are all counterfeit acccording to Bokers own site. (is it okay to say that much?)


    -also I have found more than one style of knife here on DX that has one brand name on it- and found that style elsewhere but made by a totally different brand... this pretty much confirms the 'knockoffiness' of the knife here.

    -sometimes you'll find two almost identical knives on DX with different brands on them... you can probably figure out what this means.

    For the record: Boker Plus brand is manufactured in the far east under supervision and quality control by Boker (as per their own website). Boker Arbolito brand is made in South America (if I remember right), and Boker also makes knives out of USA and Germany, of course. Taylor Cutlery/Smith & Wesson, M-Tec, and BudK also have many of their knives manufactured in the Orient. Doesn't mean they are not good knives though.

    Can anyone else confirm where other brands are made?

    Glad to remember Böker, the original, I mean. Not for my pocket, but... I'm almost speechless. They're beatiful (prices not so beautiful+brazilian taxes, OUCH!).
    But I can dream, always...

    China produces some good quality steel. Maybe (just MAYBE) some of these worth the effort&money involved.

    @cantstopshopper: do you own dx knives? How about steel quality issues?
    [edit] nevermind. Following the other post, I saw your favorites.

    It is rare, but it does happen that overstock or production seconds from the factories making the real products makes it onto DX.

    Except for every single piece of flash memory on this site, they are all factory seconds.

    The DX knives are fakes. The Boker Subcom for example, has major spelling mistakes. It's made in "Talwan" (Taiwan) and is a Chad Los Bonos "Desion" (design).

    the knives at dx are all real knives!!

    they cut slice and stab just like any other knife.

    but they are not genuine brand name.

    there is a difference!

    there is a big difference, but depending on your perspective, 25 of the fakes might be better than one of the real ones.
