Indeed, but for dazzler and draupnir it is identifiable just through images because of the engraving.

Ahh I see your point. Japanese and Chinese are quite similar so it’s confusing :slight_smile:

We share the same currency symbol (¥) and character (元). So the prices are in Chinese Yuan.

I mean either way this is more helpful than harmful if you are in the market to buy these yoyos, as it shows what the fakes look like.

Also conveniently gives direct links to TaoBao where you can buy fakes to trade! How considerate.

Anyway – I’ve flagged it as spam. Let the moderators decide.
