A Fake Sanrenmu Knife in Chinese Market GB-908

Recenetly there is a copy model of Sanrenmmu GB-908(even the hand work of this knife is not bad). Be Ware! Pictures as followed

As the sanrenmu has stopped produce the popular 9 seriers(the blade is too long according to Chinese Law)

and there is no signs that they will produce in the near future.

in this case, the price for 9 series surged a lot in Chinese Market, like the MC-962, the price before in Chinese market is around 40 RMB, now it goes up to 100 RMB.

So there is profit and market for fake ones.

for the other model which is still in production, there is almost no copies in Chinese Market

fake

For now, Sanrenmu has no models with this color handle

there is some similar color knives from Enlan, they are :

1) L01-MCT

 

 

2) L04

It looks pretty nice to me even though it is fake.  

I wonder where I can buy one.  Wink

Okay, that's kinda funny.  It is a pretty handle, though.

The fake GB-908 is a very nice looking knife. How does it compare to real SRM quality?

To bad that Sanrenmu discontinued production of the 9 series. I loaded up on several a month ago and now most are sold out.

Yes its too bad, I became interested in knives like this recently and missed out on the 9 series and the larger knives...

 

Anyway Im really happy with the EL01 (why isnt that stopped like the 962?) and I like the smaller knives for pocket carry.

 

Still, as FF said, that fake looks nice, Id like to get one, LOL.

Hi, Peter:

even it is beautiful as showed in the pictures,

but as they use cheap material for the blade, the blade will not be durable

that is why Enlan produce the EL series knvies(EL01, EL02, EL03), some of them are similar to SRM 9 series.

Just joking Dave but then again if you can get them and sell them cheap--some people around here will buy them.

Im not sure all of exactly what I have... its late and Id have to go digging. Im still waiting on a few knives to arrive but bought around 50 brand new knives within the past few months. I plan on doing an online photo slide pictorial real soon. Then all I have to do is add pics to the slide show when new knives arrive.

it will cost around 14 USD including shipping.

for this price, you can have a realy Sanrennmu 7 series knife.

ashuang0731, how do you know that your GB908 is fake and not left over inventory? Even the box looks legitimate (damn thats scarey!). Do you have an original to compare?

Yes, its very sad so why try to hide it? Yell

Now is actually a great time to collect. The quality of certain select Chinese knives is no longer a secret and prices will continue to rise as their popularity increases. Im wondering if quality will drop when their demand surpasses their supply.

I hope not but in the meantime all we have to do is keep buying knives early while the quality is still good.  I sound like a crack addict but addicted to knives.

I dunno if that's true. Knives don't exactly have inelastic supply, nor demand for that matter. The production base in china is essentially infinite, and the quality issue is more of a new cultural problem (transitional capitalist greed) than anything else. But hey, whatever we gotta tell ourselves... I like to think of the times I missed out on some flashlight deal to motivate my purchases.

I just try not to think about it...:( My last order I bought I think 8 SRM710s so Id never run out, and will have some spares if I loose one, or they get discontinued, or prices increase, or I want to mod, etc.

 

In hindsight it was kind of stupid, now I need to order a black one, a yellow camo one, and a couple others, so I wish I bought a variety of different models in the first place.

 

But the good news is that Im not addicted to flashlights, I just have one Sipik AA zoom, its perfect for me and thats all I need.  This is the only sub forum I check, LOL.

Your version certainly sounds far more plausible but does very little in helping me feed my addiction! Yell

Well I started out addicted to flashlights then a few people (you all know who you are ) around here started talking knives and so knife addiction it is. 

I wonder what's next....multitools?

Hi David,

Good to see you on the forum.  I bought some SRM 605s from you a few weeks ago.

There's another LAND knife on Aliexpress, the GB9-908, that looks like the knife in your original post but with black scales.  Also a fake?

I have this 908. Its the typical SRM legendary build quality, although I feel the blade is on the thin side for a knife of its size. Its still adequate for most cutting chores and could be an advantage for food preparation. Its to bad these are almost all gone.
