    He's using a picture of an Izula, guarantee the knife you get will not be. Also, this guys name look familiar... Have we seen him before?

    Authenticity: Reproduction

    The listing above got taken offline, so Ebay recommended some alternate counterfeit Izula instead. I reported that one as counterfeit as well.

    There was some talk that Ebay was going to shut down a lot of these Chinese sellers, but I don't see any signs of it happening.

    I seriously hope eBay will take proactive measures like Amazon is doing. Not holding my breath though.

    Yes, you can do brand registry on Amazon now and control the content for a brand.

    That's great news. I hope this works well and that companies take advantage of it.

    There are items you simply could not buy on Amazon because you could not count on them to be real. Batteries (of all things) have been a huge pain in the ass.

    Looks like I got a few of the counterfeits taken down. First time I've ever seen that work.

    Thanks, Andy. Mike battles with eBay on a weekly basis and they never pay attention to him.

    Yeah that's ridiculous. I just joined the forum today, but I seen those "izula" counterfeits. The seller originates from China and immediately I knew... buying one would be foolish.
