Sorry to hear that Daz. I hope you didn't pay too much for it.
Hello guys, really new to this forum and to multitools.I really want to buy a gerber multitool since i have had multiple occasions where i didn't have my toolbox with me because i wasn't working and i needed some tools.Now, i found this seller on a website in my country(similar to ebay) and he is selling this thing for 25$ secondhand.The title says the following : 215 GERBER tool DETHere are some pictures.I don't know if this is an obvious fake like the one in OP's post, since i am really new with these kind of tools.Thanks in advanceEdited, I emailed the seller asking whether or not if its a real gerber, and if he has a receipt or whatever to prove it. waiting for a response now.
Thanks!For the price i kind off new it was too good to be true.. i flagged it for the website to take a look at it.Dont know if its bad going off topic here, but does anyone know what kind of multitools have that slide mechanism?I was thinking about either buying the gerber 600, or a leatherman, not sure which though
How the heck would a batch of fake Gerbers get in the system?!! Someone on the fiddle?
Found a rare and coveted () fake stainless EOD on eBay:http://www.ebay.com/itm/G...90370?hash=item5423f018a2I've only seem the black fakes show up. Might be good for a collector (I'm no advocate for straight-up knockoffs).
Seen it, and bid on it (but I guess I will now have more competition ) These turn up on fleabay every now and then.

g***o ( 926)Hopes that's you!!
Good score!If you can't convince him, send me a PM and I can be a proxy ship address (I'm in the US).
Thank you for the kind offer, but I managed to get there via a most convoluted method ( I had to pretend to buy something else of the same value that was available to Oz buyers). As long as the correct tool gets here I guess all's well that ends well
Very cool - post a pic or 2 when it shows up!
