Apart from the price, the seller location seems rather suspicious as well: Rio Rancho, New Mexico, China  :facepalm:
"made of Swiss stainless steel parts and assembled in china"
Why do I not believe this? Maybe they are claiming that they buy steel from Switzerland to make their parts out of. 
The photo of a SwissChamp in blisterpack is surely not the item one will receive for $22.  Or are they counterfeiting the packaging too?

Good point!

What I was trying to say though... Last time I checked Rio Rancho, New Mexico was in the US of A,  not China :D

Clearly not a knockoff, it does not even exist in the Victorinox line-up.
It is blatant name and brand theft, lawsuit material me thinks.

Ok that's the stupidest fake I've seen in a long time... Apart from the Vic shield, that has nothing that looks even remotely like Victorinox... :rant:

If I remember right, it was a Chinese Swisschamp with a Vic shield.

This one looks fake in the fourth picture but it is definitely being passed off as a Victorinox:

They even have a negative feedback about selling a fake knife. I reported it to eBay on Friday but it is still there.  Does Victorinox have a site we can report them to for them to follow up?

Wow, that one's pretty cool.   ;)  Didn't know Victorinox made a knife with back side Phillips and a corkscrew!...


:ahhh   :ahhh   :ahhh
Horrible.

No real problem with this last one -- doesn't claim to be Victorinox or Wenger.
Not many are aware that the Swiss companies have a copyright on the phrase Swiss Army Knife when used for a red-handled multi-tooled pocketknife.  Your average seller of a used red folder is probably not trying to deceive a buyer...
