    You guys know if the "correct weight" method is still a valid way to verify a Microtech being authentic?

    Apparently no matter how they try to fake them, the weight will always be pretty obvious on a fake vs an authentic piece. Just making sure that fact hasn't changed over the years.

    Picked up a variety of MT autos lately and just wanting to make sure everything checks out. Of course they all "look" authentic but the damn CCC can sometimes be pretty damn similar.

    Thanks!

    I know this is an old thread, but I used to collect fakes before switching to the real deal. Aside from the obvious things like the lettering matching the knife (i.e. T/E is not written on a single edge knife), the 2 easiest ways to tell are

    1) The real deal always has a label on the box that exactly matches the knife whereas fakes never have that
    2) The logo and laser engraving on the real deal is smooth and the double lines running through the name are crisp and distinct whereas fakes have a notable "etch" in the engraving that you can feel with your finger
