Again just wanted to reiterate i never passed it off as authentic as im not an expert on the brand. I got this as a gift a yr ago but never used it. To my knowledge, the item given to me was authentic. This brand was a low end brand, in my opinion too cheap for fakers to even bother producing replicas nowadays; perhaps maybe during the brands prime about 10Yrs ago. The item was never used and condition was as the photos i posted. Again apologies if it didn’t live up to your standards.
