Wrong. Narnia is just a step through your cupboard so Sarnia is obviously just through your fridge.

the funny thing about international law is that it's applied even more selectively than our own government's laws. especially since there's not really any enforcement mechanism.

I use the law firm of Smith & Wesson for domestic copyright enforcement, I hear Heckler & Koch is helpful for overseas problems well known international You won't find too many intelligent, well intentioned people in this business.

Real HEST cuts too quick, pops the cartoid too soon. Fake one would be slower, rustier, painfullier

bought a fake HEST/f in a Kabul bazaar - $7. Just in case anybody is curious about how much HEST 7 bucks buys you:

Top is my real sterile LE, bottom is the fake. Not sure what's going on with the masonic symbol but all the fake HESTs had them on, weird. Scales appear to be micarta

Note there is no roto-block on the $7 model

I'll take suggestions on torture testing the POS to see how it holds up. I'm talking about the fake knife BTW not the guy selling them.

Dude - everything you make will eventually be knocked off in China, that is a 100% certainty - A good friend of mine who is a leader in the tactical gear industry said "don't waste your time bothering with the fakes and instead use your time to make innovate gear and you will thrive in this industry"

I take it as a compliment that the cunts repro'd the knife. Badly.

I will however take great pleasure in slowly disemboweling the owner, factory manager, shift supervisor and sales manager with a real HEST to show them the crispness of the blade and stoutness required for severing the neck bone just below the skull. The trick is to keep them alive so they are still awake when their chin hits their breastplate.

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Unfortunately quality is never imitated.

Does eBay take any action on these frauds? Would they shut down his sales or do they even give a shit, all I know is every time I have looked for an item on eBay I get 1000 hits, but I always restrict it to North American sales and the number drops to about 30, and still half of that is some idiot selling Chinese knock offs from North America

we have a nice selection of severed heads outside our office. Usually the bootleggers have a life span of about a day before they get shut down. Ebay and others are pretty good about pulling the plug on bootleggers. Normally these folks do other stuff that attracts the attention of local law enforcement as well.

Yeah I was just in the police station on Thursday reporting an Identity theft, so far they have tried to get 2 credit cards under my name and racked up a $250 eBay bill in my original name, I legally changed my name 2 years ago to my mother's maiden name, and on Wednesday I got a bill from eBay in my birth name for charges someone racked up by doing sales on eBay in my old name. I would greatly love that severed head nailed to the wall outside my door. So now I have to constantly get credit reports to ensure nothing is out there in my name building up a debt.

I'd honestly rather spend a few extra bucks at a reputable dealer than try and grab an ebay bargin - I've been burned by ebay before.
