Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! Dear All, I live in Italy, I bought my first Cold Steel knife in 1987, a Magnum Tanto. Three days ago I bought on Amazon a Rajah II, I was looking for something stronger and easier to resharpen than my Vaquero Grande I bought about 18 years ago. The Rajah II arrived this morning. I bought it on Amazon because here in Italy knives from American brands are sold at a ridicolous high price: I found a Rajah II at 155 Euros, its price can easily be greater than 200 Euros. But I saw there are some "clone" of Rajah II, and some of them are quite similar to the real one. I am asking you how can I be sure I received a REAL RAJAH II, because I am afraid: on the blade there isn't the mark "BD1" on the ricasso, and on the box there is a strange label saying "Certified CTS BD1 Steel President Lynn C. Thompson: " and a three letter signature saying "LCT". I can imagine they can mean "Lynn C. Thompson" but it is a weird way to make a signature, it is easy to counterfait. On the box there is another label, with a bar code, and the following numbers: 0 705442 007562 I removed the label, and under it there is the Cold Steel box bar code saying 7 05442 01284 9 62KGC Moreover, on the ricasso the "Rajah II" printing is not so near to the thumb plate, as it can be seen on the catalogue. Again, on the other side of the blade the words "Cold Steel" are on the same line, they are not "on different level". Please help me to find if it is a REAL COLD STEEL RAJAH 2 !!! Thank you so much!!!
