    Hi guys! recently bought this beautiful SAK from biggest auction site. Everything looks good, tools are perfect, mesurements and weight are exactly as should be.
    The only concern i have is scales. Could you take a look and confirm that this one is not fake. What makes me doubt:
    1) logo is printed under the scale, not engraved. (not sure if it should be engraved or not);
    2) noticeable miscoloration - look at pic#1 (from Internet) it's what I was expect to get. And look at my pictures - red is not red but more dark orange;
    3) colors of scales kinda strange, not homogeneous but more like sprayed.
    4) there is no such "flag" color on victorinox official website
    What's your thoughts guys?
    Thanks in advance and stay sharp!

    Looks genuine to me. Victorinox made many specialty runs for a gazillion clients. Red, white and blue are popular colors for national emblems, so lots of these could be sold as generic budget version "unique" giveaways, I think.

    It looks legit I picked up a few flag knives at the warehouse sale last month.

    Always go by the tools. There are enough aftermarket and special scales out there, that you could easily walk past something good because a scale wasn't quite what you thought it should be. The fakes all have tell-tales that give them away, and in general they are made in massive batches so there are not many variations to have to look for.
