No problem. It's really sad in this hobby what some will try to pull off to make a buck. The Chinese replica I pictured I got years ago for 15 dollars. I think they still make them.
Karaya i cant say it to many times....... but use what we have here: a huge reference database.
If you would invest a bit of your time you would have noticed the scabbard ( Huge give away) and after a bit of research the knife also as a complete fake.
Collecting is no rocket science, but it take commitment and time to get familiar with this stuff.
You simply cant collect if your not willing to put some serious time in collecting knowledge...otherwise this hobby will cost you a lot of "learning"money
