|Accster||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!|

|cke-gt||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.|

|HofstraJet||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.|

|HofstraJet||Mine just shipped - 0.8 lbs according to Lasership. Sounds pretty light.|

I received a single puncht today as well. The 1/4". There is a label on the package that states:
8 Piece. Time to contact Amazon

|cke-gt||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.|

|twiggss94||got these while price was still $11 but with shipping of 1-2 months makes me wondering if it might end up canceled.|

HF pin punches are probably made out of pot metal!!

Everything I own with the Brown and Sharpe label was either made in the USA, Germany, or Switzerland. I feel confident ordering anything by Brown and Sharpe. Their reputation is still top-notch.
Harbor Freight is not as good and likely never will be. Now with that said, a pretty strong argument could be made to go with a Harbor Freight set if the B&S set was the full $57. But at these prices, it's a no-brainer.
It appears that the deal is now dead. Mine has already shipped. I hope everybody else gets theirs.
