Default Fake Navy tools, a dirty dozen.

America, it has been said, is a land of opportunity, a land of risk takers and entrepreneurs, where anything is possible, even turning a $5.00 tool into one that can be sold for $150.00 plus. Over the years I have collected these as I see them, heavens no! not the tools! just the photos! Enjoy...

Hi Tom,
I have about another half dozen fishy looking tools plus another couple that belong to friends of mine who think that "theirs are authentic". My belief is that un-inspected and unmarked DWM tools were delivered with each of the 52,000 Navies manufactured.

LU, you know these weapons are way too valuable to be shipped out to sea with the officers....I am certain they wrapped them in an oil cloth and hid them away before boarding........
