Every genuine tool manufacturer featured in our pages has spend years and considerable amounts of money developing products, improving manufacturing processes, improving design features and building a reputation for high end quality tools.

Replica tools - Counterfeit tools tend to be manufactured from cheap materials, using inferior processes and sub-standard components. Every counterfeit tool which we have seen is of much lower quality than the original. Many counterfeit tools can best be described as "a waste of money" and some fake tools are downright dangerous and even life threatening.

Additionally; genuine tool manufacturers and authorised agents spend years building their reputation for quality products and service. Counterfeit tools can usually be described as "cheap Tat". They are usually either blatant copies of quality brands but bear a different name, or they simply bear the name of a quality brand in order to con potential buyers into believing that they are buying a genuine - quality tool (eg; a cheap tool which criminals have illegally labeled as being a quality brand).

There is also an increasing trend for illegal vendors to pretend to be authorized genuine agents and dealers. They then sell counterfeit tools and fake tools to customers. The customer naturally believes that they have bought a genuine tool and blames the legitimate manufacturer (often via online forums and also by "word of mouth"). This phenomenon can have devastating repercussions for the genuine manufacturer and can ruin a company's good name.
