    I thought ejs were rebranded dovo.. these look kind of too generic. Grab one and let us know.

    I vote "to good to be true".. Looks a lot like an Imperial (available from same seller for same price) with different etching.. The case is the same as the Imperials.

    It's also missing the Solingen stamp on the tang and the logo on the scales.

    It might be real but I would skip it myself.
