    Yeah! The price was a dead give away to a fake.

    The amount of counterfeit sogs on ebay is staggering. One could spend all day report the different iterations of the Flash II.

    POS counterfeiters.

    Looks too big for a PUP though....

    Incredible, that some folks believe, that theyll get a decent knife and buy this one. Might not cut much, might be downright dangerous.

    I don't know the current price of sog baby seals but the one I got eons ago in Walmart was so cheap I doubt anybody would fake them and who would buy a fake to save $5?
    Strange.

    Even weirder. Just checked the river site and with free prime shipping it's $3 cheaper than the fake.
    What am I missing?

    Yeah, it is claimed to be a Seal Team but it looks like a Seal 2000 to me.

    Yes when I first saw the listing photo I thought it was a "Seal 2000 clone". Then I saw the Square SOG Logo and thought it was
    a counterfeit Seal2000. Then I saw the blade length described below as;

    Specifications

    Overall Length: 30 cm
    Blade Length: 12.5 cm
    Blade Thickness: 0.55 cm
    Blade Material: 440 C
    Blade-HRC: 58 HRC
    Handle Materia: ABS
    Sheath:Included

    12.5cm is 4.9 inches.
