I have no idea who this guy is or why he's using my name.
I've certainly never claimed to be an expert on Japanese
swords, much less keris????? I didn't laugh myself silly, just
got p-ssed off mad!

This is the 2nd time it appears on eBay (as far as I've observed).
The storyline is quite mis-leading.

Rich,

Relax and don't be p-ssed off. I do understand your feelings very well, but it is not worth it and bad for your heart. Just laugh about it like we all do about such an insane story.
The only thing you can do is contact the guy through his auction and ask him why on earth he dares to use your name without your permission. Or did he promissed you the half of the profit he would make ???

I guess I should be use to it by now. The Chinese fakers selling fake,
"Japanese swords" (aka chinese crapola) have been using my name and
website graphics for years. No amount of complaining to ebay ever does
any good. This is a first on kris though. Have no idea where the seller
got that I did kris. I've got a couple and think they are neat, but know
squat about them.

THE SPELLING IS VERY POOR AND THE STORY HOGWASH BUT FUNNY. THE FACT THAT HE USES SOMEONE BY NAME AS REFRENCE WITHOUT THEIR PERMISSION IS NOT FUNNY. THERE CAN BE NO DOUBT THAT HE KNOWS THAT WHAT HE IS SELLING IS NOT WHAT HE SAYS IT IS, AS IT IS ONE OF THE POOREST TYPES OF SOUVINEER KERIS WITH THE PARMOR PAINTED ON AND THE WORST GRADE OF CARVING FOR THE HULU AND NO SCABBARD. TO PASS YOURSELF OFF AS A GALLERY WITH EXPERT INFORMATION AND TO ASK A EXTREME RIPPOFF PRICE FOR FAKE MISSREPRESENTED GOODS IS A EBAY SELLER AT THEIR WORST.
MAY THE FLEAS OF A THOUSAND CAMELS INFEST HIS ARMPITS!

Actually, I'd wish an infestation a bit further down on his anatomy :-)

Thumbs down But wait, there's more...

If you liked the Keris...

You will love this magnificent well articulated Saber tooth tiger skull, very rare and collectible! (It seems to be a habit with this seller... oh, this auction has ended by the way by the way).

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dl...item=7349463222

The only problem? At best, it is a single piece casting (it's so bad, I can not tell if it is real or cast from a poor carving). I guess someone needs a dictionary to look up the word articulated.

The buyer even wrote: "Great skull and one seldom offered, especially at this price. Many thanks."

"Never give a sucker and even break... and never smarten up a chump."

That looks like plaster of Paris. I bet he is from a long line of snake oil salesmen, you can only inherit that type of gall. Tim

I thought this was the best part:
