So i found this Boker usm3 trench knife but i have a feeling it is a repro.. Has or does anyone one this site own one and if so do you have any pics? I really like this knife but they are asking close to $300 and i want to know its authentic before i dish out the cash. I do have one big issue with it and that is that there is a small printed "China" at the hilt just below the sharpened part of the blade. This makes me think it's a repro,,,,,Am I Right?

I agree

But a repro is still a repro!!! and the repro's i have found are $65 so even with shipping its not worth more then $80.. Yours being authentic with the proper sheath is worth the money they are asking for this one or more. Who made yours?
