Product Information:

For an untrained eye or a non-experienced customer, it is pretty difficult to understand if you are buying an original, or a Chinese made counterfeit. When Fallkniven Knife copies are sold in boxes which are copied exactly to the authentic items detail, it almost impossible for a customer to tell what's right or wrong.

Authentic Fallkniven boxes light brown inside while the Chinese boxes are just as white as the outside of the counterfeit box.

The authentic Fallkaniven knives are all convex ground, but this is a technical term which the average buyer might not know about. See the picture below which will easily inform you about the difference between a flat ground and a convex ground blade.

All counterfeit knives are flat ground and the edge is a traditional secondary, so called factory edge.

Authentic Fallkniven knives are made in clad (laminate) steel, and you are able to see the lamination line close to the edge. Some illegal Chinese knife manufacturers, but not all, have tried to imitate that feature by etching such a line along the edge to deliberately deceive the inexperienced viewer.

Fallkniven controls the steel in the F1 and A1 knifes made in China. A test is made by Swedish SWEDAC, an accredited test laboratory, the LKAB/MetLab. An xamination of the counterfeit reveals that the Chinese copies are made of poor or fairly poor stainless steel and far from the authentic models quality, toughness and edge retention.
