Fake or genuine SOG knife?
« on: June 27, 2015, 12:25:17 PM »
Hi,  I have a question for you maybe some might help me clear this out. Ihave recently baught a SOG knife fron a local shop. It had all the right packing and everything but the coating on the blade is not smooth. Looks cheaply made. Has what looks like bumps in the coating. When I asked the owner of the shop he showed me other knifes and alk looked like having the same type of coating problems.

The coating does not look uniform and has sort of bubble marks on it. Can some obe please help me specify if its a fake or not please.

I'm new to forums and don't know how to post pictures of the item. Sorry.
Thank you.

Hello I just bought this SOG Instinct Mini for $6 here in the Philippines. Is this genuine?

I'm not allowed by SOG to discuss wholesale pricing, but I will say that dealer cost on the Mini Instinct is significantly more than $6, so unless your local dealer really likes you, I would be a bit suspect on that one.

I also passed by a legitimate store on the wsy home and it had several brands on really low prices like this SOG. I'm now thinking they were counterfeits...

I've sent a message off to SOG to see what they have to say.  Maybe they can identify them?

Just email this to Grant, but posting it here as well

Hmmm, that is really weird. From looking at the pictures it looks like a legit product.  Although someone selling it for $6 makes me think it’s a fake.  From what I can see in the photos, everything looks to be right. Having stated that without actually seeing the knife it is almost impossible to 100% verify the authenticity of the product. Wish I could provide a more definite answer for you.

Road Trip!  Swing by and pick me up on the way to Malta!

Seriously, thanks for stopping in Chris.  The price does seem very suspect to me as well and makes me wonder how they could be legitimate.

Thanks, Chris and Grant! Very helpful info. I think I finally found one of the sources, check out the Facebook page here:

And judging by the extremely low prices of the Spydercos, Benchmades, Gerbers, etc., I'd say these are first class Chinese knockoffs?

I'd say that is a safe bet indeed.

Dang. My fake Mini got confiscated in the train station when my bag was x-rayed.

Good thing it was fake.

Whew.
