    I need some help to asses two knives. Maybe someone can help to asses if those knives are made by United Cutlery / Master Cutlery or if they are chinese fakes.
    Maybe the knive sheath is a hint.

    Thank you!

    Yes, now I learned that the Rambo lettering at licenced knives are stamped at the steel, while it's just printed at the budget knives.
