    I know close to nothing about EKs, but I love that one, Ingrid

    Ingrid, I am not sure this is a good one. Those inner corners are too rounded for my liking. It looks like its trying to be a Souval.

    I hope I am wrong lets here the other guys views

    It does have some of the characteristics of a Souval EK, or perhaps a F.Hoffstatter, but as Nick has just stated above, there are issues with this one I fear. The inner corners of that framework are very rounded, and the hardware doesn't match anything I recognise. I hope I am wrong Ingrid, but my gut instinct says not good at the moment.

    Good, glad you won't lose out Ingrid. For the record, any EK with corners this round will be a fake. Souval corners are quite conservative by comparison!

    Thanks Adrian! I hoped a TR EKI would have been my first, but I guess a 57er EKI will be the first. It will arrive this week.

    Pity. I hope you will get your money back Ingrid.
