    They look ok to me, appears to be g-10 scales which would need to be removed to see the serial #'s. Not familiar with that forum or site so no opinion on that. How about a link to the sale info?

    I would suggest buying from reputable dealers.

    I do, not all that useful in the secondary market though, and I was only interested in letting purchaser know if they were authentic or not.

    If you remove the g10 scales you see the serial numbers.

    Knives are not in my possession, guess I should have been clear on that. They both sold (another forum) for $25 each, highly suspect on its own.

    I do appreciate the replies though!

    I've seen the colors before. Look legit to me. I would probably have to hold one to tell for sure.

    The sheaths are old stock (slot) but removing the scales so you can see if they bear a 51455 serial number would be the only way to know for sure. They do have the very small sharpening choil which the counterfeits do not.
