Touch call based on these pics, but 2 things I don't like... the blade edges appear quite uneven, could just be the pics, and the motto is a bit low on the blade. Both are traits of repros, so beware, maybe insist on better pics...

I tend to agree with Red...

... the motto does appear to be too far down the blade and the blade shape, in particular, from the, "M", to the tip is a strange shape.

I'd be extemely cautious on this one...

Motto does look more than the standard 25mm from the crossguard

The motto looks too far down the blade. It should be 25mm, not what I am seeing here.

Also fake blades do have the billet marks on the tangs if they are forged steel, which most of them are.
