The best way to protect yourself from fakes is to buy from this website or from our amazon store. You can also be sure your knife is fully backed by our Limited Lifetime Warranty.
As you would expect, counterfeiting hurts a manufacturer like GCS. We not only lose sales, but by having our name associated with fake products, our brand reputation suffers. Counterfeiting hurts us. And ultimately, it hurts you, our customers.
We, also being the manufacturers, are taking all the legal steps we can to deter the counterfeiters. But it’s not a problem that can be solved overnight. In the meantime, protect yourself, your family, and friends by being vigilant and making sure that what’s in your pocket is a genuine GCS.
