Discuss and show off counterfeit knives here. Post pictures and share information if you spot one, or own some. Make sure to ask questions if you are not certain about the authenticity of a knife you are considering buying or selling. There are plenty of great people here willing to help.
I personally wouldn't call the photos deceptive, the guy COULD just be a bad photographer (a trait I share with him) however, listing this knife in the "Vintage" category on Ebay and calling it a Hammer Brand NEW YORK (when the only mark is "Hammer Brand") and thereby implying that it is a New York Knife Co. knife and calling it "Old" in his description is deceptive.
Thank you all !! got the money back in my account, take it as a honest mistake, seller says he picked it up at a gun show. last month i went to a gun show in CT. a lot of new schrades mixed in as vintage. keep up the good work guys
Never Argue With a idiot They'll bring you down to their level & beat you with experience PAUL
The handles alone were enough to sound the alerts. The actual New York Knife Co Cotton Knife is a plain-jane wood handled 4" 1-blade knife. I have never seen one with any handles other than wood. One is pictured on page 237 of Bruce Voyles' Antique Knives 1st ed.
