                   Hi of all places  I found this in a local street fair in Rio de Janeiro Brazil.
Fairly cheap abour 25 bucks.
After learning a bit I guess it´s fake, but it´s sturdy, no wobbling head at all and the washers are slim at least to me. What do you think?
Thanks and regards, Ray

Hi. By the looks of it (glossy paint, combination Torx/notched pivots, painted letttering, gaps between tools and washers, and lack of blade exchanger), I'd say a fake.
Perhaps look into this and compare?

This is how an OG would look:
 

Still a good score at its price as it makes for a good, usable tool without fearing for it to be broken or "rescued" by another one. :tu:
