    I think they will have a very hard time faking crossgrain. To me it seems impossible to make it look like real crossgrain but maybe I'm being too optimistic. When someone finds examples of faked crossgrain, please post them here so we can all compare it with the real deal!

    Hi Gerd, thanks for posting this blade. The crossgrain in the indicated area looks quite convincing. Is it possible to show more pictures of this blade? Especially a picture that shows the crossgrain on the entire lenght of the blade?

    I would say that crossgraining is fairly easy to fake with the right tools and know how. I know this because I do it as a service to refurbish customers modern knives (nothing TR related). Not trying to be rude just saying don't put all your pennies in the crossgrain basket.

    No Larry,
    this is an 807/36 blade.I also have a 807 blade with the typical 1203 Herder etch pattern in my database.
