Every torx aside from the one holding the clip is t6. The non clip side doesn't have slots milled for the clip.

It does look off. My Tern has larger screws and does have the slots for the wire clip on both sides.

You don’t see many fakes of $20 knives. That’s just strange....

Perhaps genuine but tampered with?

oh, really, you wouldn't believe...
I've seen fakes of 3 Byrd models that I can recall, not counting the dozen models of Spyderco fakes of course

and you also have RAT1, Kershaw, CRKT and budget Cold Steel fakes. Nowadays it's crazy :(

I received a refund

Seller updated photos to show actual product. Authentic Tern photos were previously used.
I reported the listing
