    I'm only working on the Ebay listings. Happy to say that I've knocked about 70 offline so far.

    If you see one, definitely send it to me. I think I can knock those down just as easily as the ones in English.

    wesa75 on eBay is using credit card fraud. I purchased 2 ESEE PR4’s drone eBay. They were shipped from SMKW to me in separate transactions with separate parties paying. No response from seller when questioned. Filed a claim through eBay. eBay said ship them back to seller and they would issue a refund. I would rather ship them to SMKW.

    Unfortunately, I can't help with that. Did you contact SMKW to let them know what happened? They would probably be in a better position to tackle this than Ebay is.

    That's awesome, bud. Keep it up!

    This is a very low price for an ESEE knife, but the seller says the knife is used and has some damage to the finish. I guess he just wants to guarantee a sale with this price.

    Here's are two examples of counterfeit listings:
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/124235385402
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/174307666211

    I found and reported those yesterday, so hopefully they'll disappear sometime today. Both are for counterfeit Izula knives. On the second one, I may have to report it under a different heading because of the weasel way he structured his listing.

    There are factories in China cranking out the counterfeit Izula knives. They do the notorious 51455 serial number on painted knives, and they also make what they usually describe as a "D2 Izula" knife that has a different serial number (usually starts with 121....). A few months back I saw that a factory in China also started making a counterfeit Candiru, but it hasn't shown up on Ebay yet, as far as I can tell. Beyond those two, the Ebay counterfeits are limited to strange homebrew knives that people claim are ESEE.
