    Just like the subject says, has anyone ever seen a knockoff 5? Picked one up in a lost mail auction, wanted to know if its real or not. Looks real, came in white cardboard box inside of a sleave, inside the box was some stickers, the plastic card, bag of screws.. and a ESEE-52-MB-OD .. but no kydex sheath, seems like an odd way to order it.

    What is the item number on the bar code affixed to the end of the box?

    And another side note, it is not very often, that the man with the name on the door replies back to you. I'm starting to see why the brand is doing so well. Bravo on that

    Ok, so the box is correct for what you got but I'm not sure how you landed a molle back with that knife. The -KO means Knife Only (no sheath).

    Im pretty sure its molle back. Still crazy they didnt order the sheath with it. Maybe that got lost in the mail as well

    Yep, that's a MOLLE Back. Way more expensive than the molded sheath so you came out ahead on that deal.

    Yeah really looking forward to get the molle back. I have my ESSE 5 as my go to bigger carry in the woods. Awesome kydex sheath, if that's what your looking to purchase, you will really like it. I really dig the retention bolt.

LOL will make a great Christmas gift.. guess i'll keep and eye out on ebay for him
