Fake benchmade 42??

Post by Beretta92 » Sun Apr 30, 2017 8:22 pm

Hello. Reaching out to some experts here.

Do any real benchmade 42s have this type of latch? I am thinking fake because of this, but I am no expert.

Thanks!

Exactly. That's the only place I could find this latch. Have not been able to find a real one with this latch.

I don't think someone would put that thing on a real 42.

I did then edited my post once I checked out dhgate. Real BM42's aren't that rough inside the channels.

Yep. That's what I thought. Thank you. I know the guy and will let him know it's not real.

Thanks! Nice to be here. Don't know much, but I do know what I like! More into swithblades, I was looking at the balisong for my son. Too bad.

The guy also has a taylor/seto manila folder. VERY thick and heavy. Only pic I have. Any thoughts?
