    We have recently discovered that counterfeit American Kensei 47 Swords are being made right here in the States and sold on Ebay and possibly on other sites as well.

    We have not yet been able to make contact with all of the buyers as of this posting.

    We understand that these swords are being made and sold out of the (Broken Arrow)/Tulsa, Oklahoma area by sources not affiliated with us.

    This blatant counterfeiting of our product and selling by use of our name and reputation will not stand.

    The ones that we have examined look exactly like the real deal at first glance and in photos. However, these samples have not been heat treated and have handles that are not flush with the tang. We have seen samples with multi-colored G-10 and Black paper micarta handles.

    A few threads have been started about this in the past couple of days but were deleted at our request as our attorneys were working on this matter.

    If you believe that you may have purchased a counterfeit Busse sword or spot one on another site, please call us immediately! Ask for Jerry when you call: (419) 923-6471

    I am not able to give out any more information at this point but will keep you updated when possible.

    If you see a “Sterile” or suspicious looking American Kensei 47 sword for sale on the secondary market or have any other questions, please do not hesitate to call.


    Here are the fakes. . .

    Seriously hope you find out who the scum bag is/are... Then post their coordinates here, just in case anyone is going to be passing by and would like to express their respectful displeasure at such practices, by stuffing the crap these guys produce up every orifice the bastids got.

    That's ridiculous. I'll keep my eyes out and that's a shame that people take advantage of others in this manner.

    As China learns about more and more of our best made American products, this is going to become all too common in the future, unfortunately. I realize this is from OK, but this will only become more of an issue.

    One of my ex-girlfriends is Chinese-American. Some of her Chinese family was visiting my house once and I showed them a Finnish M39 Mosin bolt action rifle from the Winter War in World War II. I described how it was a unique piece of history and very collectible. One of them turned it over in her hands and said, "You can just make these and sell them." I said, "Oh no, there's arsenal stamps all over the metal, under the wood, that tell where it's been." She looked at me and said, "Well yeah, you just recreate them." I was like, "What the fffffuuuuuuuuu........" Her family doesn't own any factories. That reaction was her first instinctual response.
