Extrema Ratio: fake knives are for fake people

Hi everybody,

I’m pleased to open this post here, having received from Extrema Ratio several pics illustrating the differences between original ER knives and fakes. I guess this will be useful for most ER fans so for all knives’ passionate.

Extrema Ratio knives are easily recognizable for their peculiar style, and they are 100% made in Italy. I know that not all of us likes them, and several people think they are a bit expensive. Well, I just think that, if Extrema Ratio continue to launch new models and to grow up as a company, that means the quality/price ratio is not all bad at the end of the day.

Me, I don’t like all the ER knives, but having tested several models throughout the years, I learned to appreciate the original style of this brand and – as an Italian – I appreciate the choice to not move the production in China or in some other South-East country, in these hard last years too.

Coming back to the main purpose of this thread, I think fakes knives are just a shame. They are low quality and dangerous tools, they damage our economy, and they were made without any work’s safety and environment’s respect.

Now, few pics illustrating the differences between original ER knives and fakes. Hope this help, thanks for watching.

  1. Ciao, avendo posseduto per curiosità un falso RAO non posso che confermare, che le copie sono oltre che fatte in maniera pressapochista e mal temprate, anche potenzialmente pericolose. Nel RAO infatti, segnalo che il blocco è molto ma molto debole, lo scalino che dovrebbe tenere bloccata la lama è di appena 2-3 mm.
