Counterfeits in my local pawn shop!
The Pawn Shop at Lake Ella, one of the few such stores where I live, just opened up recently. It's in one of the two or three most "upscale" parts of town, and it gets a good amount of exposure among the wealthier folks around here. Naturally, I went in looking for knives.
And they had some.
Several new Microtech Combat Troodons and even an NIB Extrema Ratio RAO, for just $99 each!
Obviously, these were typical, common fakes, and I was a little miffed by their presence in the storefront. When I leaned over the glass to take a closer look, the attendant asked me if I'd like to hold any of the knives. I told him I don't have any interest in counterfeit goods and walked out.
I'm not sure if there's anything else I should be doing in this situation (Do I contact the authorities? Do I call and ask to speak to management and voice my displeasure?), but if you're ever in the North Florida area, it's probably best you skip this seedy shop. Maybe this kind of thing is actually pretty common for pawn shops, but it was a little bit shocking to see these fakes front and center in my town.
