    It's the first time I've seen Chinese sellers try to sell counterfeits for full price.

    I guess we can't all be perfect.

    I recently bought a couple esee knives from The Knife Guy on eBay and noticed that the esee 3 and esee 4 Knife I bought doesn't have the orange liner or liner at all and was wondering if these might be fake I can send some pictures. The esee 3 has canvas Micarta handles and the esee 4 is a Clip point which said it's supposed to be linen Micarta handles but they are hard to like G10 handles. They also have 5 digit serial numbers

    They look legit but that's hard to verify with only one angle showing half of the knife.

    Thanks for the quick reply because if I can have a little re-insurance if they're real I will keep them because I was thinking of sending them back, just bought them. here are some actual pictures of the actual knives the rat one has a rough coating on it I thought the rat one came with a smooth coating or maybe it's just the old rat one's came with the smooth coating, not sure.

    I don't see anything that looks off. I'm not familiar with Ontario knives so I can't help there.

    Do you know anything about the knife guy on eBay if they sold any fake esee 3 or 4 knives before?

    No specific knowledge of that seller but it is worth noting that I don't yet think any "fake" versions of the 3 or 4 have shown up thus far, they have been Izulas or knives obviously not an ESEE model.

    Thank you for feedback means a lot to me, that's what I thought just wanted to ask the professionals because I just bought 4 esee knives, but my next knives I buy is going to be from this site or your recommend dealers. Thanks again
