Legit or Fake Millie M390 Carbon Fiber?

Postby Zvinets » Sat Aug 31, 2019 9:15 am

Hello everyone, I found this auction on the Bay and wondering whether this is Original or Fakey Millie in M390 Carbon Fiber?

I know the Bay and similar are the risky shots but regardless I'll have little research in meantime :)

*Some things that makes me doubt are:

1. The price is magical: $103.50 although still going up till auction over. Despite described as 2nd in good condition, I believe the range couldn't be that low.

2. No box photos. If there are box photos it could somewhat help me in identifying.

*Link to the auction and more photos here:

That's all to conclude my little topic here.
Have a pleasant day y'all :) :spyder:

I'm assuming that it is a 2nd from this part of the quoted item description:

"Good condition.It was carried and used very little. Factory edge. Never sharpened. This was Sprint run. Carbon fiber. 154cm. No box. Pictures are of actual knife for sale. Feel free to ask questions or if you need more pictures."

*I just noticed that there's no box. My bad I didn't read that part. So now it's only the photos to clarify the authenticity

I thought you were referring to a factory second which has a distinctive notch cut out of the blade which that knife does not as far as i can see in the pictures. I have never seen a fake of this particular sprint. It looks kosher to me although that seller doesn't have any feedback (red flag) although they are also selling a legit lum folder as well

There's nothing on the face of it to suggest anything wrong, and to be honest I don't think fakery is something you have to worry much about *in this instance* rather, the issue may be the condition of the knife (which looks pretty decent IMO). In short, I think you're good.
My collection so far: 52100 Military (2); 52100 PM2 (2); 52100 Para3; Stretch2 V-Toku; KnifeWorks M4 PM2; BentoBox M390 PM2; BentoBox S90V Military; Police4 K390; S110V PM2; SS Delica AUS-6; Wayne Goddard Sprint VG-10
Wish list: Hundred Pacer; Sliverax; Mantra; 52100 PM2 SE; Kapara
