I know this thread has been moved to the nether world, but I want to warn anybody that ordered this. Amazon tried to bamboozle me by sending me only one punch instead of an entire set. I knew that price was too good to be true. About a 0% chance this works out in my favor. Grumble.
So according to all of the reviews, the sets Amazon is sending are knock-offs and not made by B&S. They are now selling the set at full price - I wonder if I order the full price set if I would receive the OEM set or the knock-off.
Wow, I received mine in the mail today too. Those negative reviews are correct. You can see the "erased" markings on the plastic pouch. I don't think this was perpetrated by Amazon, though. Why would they go through all the trouble? They could've just cancelled everyone's orders claiming a price mistake. I hope this wasn't on Brown and Sharpe's end either. I've had my eye on that bunch since Hexagon Metrology bought them out. I've been really happy with everything from B&S I've ever bought. I would hate to see the brand's reputation start to go down like so many other American companies that have taken to offshoring. Oh well, this is not a great price if it is indeed a made in India set, but I guess I'll just keep them because I'm tired of fooling with it. They don't look like complete crap and were just going to be a backup to my Starrett set anyway. Sorry to all you guys that got hoodwinked.
I received my 8-piece punch set the other day... and yep.. I got hoodwinked also. Even at first glance I could easily tell these were NOT the quality hardened punches that would come from Browne & Sharp. Obvious they are cheap and much lower quality foreign made imports. I hold Amazon fully accountable for selling fake/counterfeit items, such as these clearly are!
