Here's a fake Squirt P4 I came across the other day. It was in a pile of stuff on an EBay auction and I thought I was getting a deal it since I don't mind surface wear/dirt. Unfortunately, fake.

Almost identical pliers, shape, size, etc. I noticed the file on this one had a serrated blade edge which is what got me looking and then saw both the blade and pliers were missing the Leatherman logo. Knife actually sharpened up alright (better than any other Chinese knife I've had) and the pliers work identical to the real deal so I may throw it in with the fishing gear since those knives always seem to go missing eventually anyways. But figured I'd share a comparison between the fake and a real one I had laying around. See attachments!

 :like:  Yeah, it's fake but that serrated blade is a cool feature; something I wish the real deal had.

That's actually a good find IMO (but I've been known to collect the weird and not-so-wonderful ;) )

I don't remember seeing a Squirt copy before.  I've seen several Juice copies (of various sizes), but never a Squirt copy.  If shipping isn't too expensive I'd like to buy or trade it from you (I have lots of "real" Squirts).

Here's one Flair copy.

I think Protocol must have had a couple of people who had the job of copying LM tools, I've seen several different models.

There’s a lot of fake skeletools (Feletools?...Fakeletools?) on AliExpress as well...

All look like dog poop though

One reason to not use fleabay.

Ive been ordering directly from Leatherman. Cant find an actual seller that sells them less. Even Home Depot has the Wave+ for $99.
