Fake Pilot G2 Pen


"I thought it was some sort of clearance when I bought this HKD $3
fake Pilot G2 pen from a "warehouse" in Causeway Bay. The standard retail price
is HKD $11. $3 is even half of what retailers get from wholeseller or
distributor. You won’t even notice the subtle differences if you are not holding
a real one side by side..

. the pirates even printed the same barcode and model number on the
sticker. It is an impressive deception unless you are trained to observe the
manufacturing quality differences of sticker/barcode/plastic/ink etc. Shame!
Wasted me $3 instead of saving $8."

  1. I’m curious…do you think that being a good fake is a good thing?

  2. I am consistently amazed by the cheap things that will be counterfeited.

    FYI, it is not a good fake. It is deceiving instead of replicating. The ink leaks when you write, I found this out after 3 days of test.

    “That which seems to be too good to be true, often is.”
