What a sin!
« on: December 02, 2018, 10:43:47 PM »
I can tell right away this isn't a Classic, it's the $1.99 knockoff that used to be found everywhere, and is now common as a cheap giveaway knife. This is ought-right deception from this seller. I've had it happen before locally at a flea market, some cheap bargain bin Frost POS in a Boker USA box.  Guy had two knives ,one a Boker USA in the correct box, and the POS in a Boker box, tried to make me buy both. Took all kinds of negotiating while trying to avoid saying that's a POS in a Boker box, to only buy the one authentic knife.

I don't get that either. The only time it would be "Swedish" is if it had an ad for Volvo or Sandvik (both I've seen Vic ad knives for) for example.

No matter how well it looks...I will not buy on one photo...show me more so I can make a better decision! Even on two photos, I have requested more photo’s and if they don’t I will not bid or buy.

As a kid I always got Swiss and Swedish confused

Sent the seller a pointed message

PS Not about Swiss Swedish  - About selling fakes!

This happens quite frequently on the Swiss rifles forum. So much so that the transgressor is treated to a couple of verses of “Oh Swederland Oh Swederland” and a quick lesson in geography.

This is not a Joke, I used to install/setup a lot of Dell computers, they always had Switzerland as the default country but Keyboard/Language was set to Swedish. :think: :dunno:
