Anybody seen one of those Far East factories churning out a ti fork that looks like a Project 2?

Just found this:
http://m.alibaba.com/product/428967400/ ... fork_.html

This one looks even more like a P2

Did I read that wrong then? Thought that was the price buying direct from the manufacturer?

Even from that tiny pic the dropouts look pretty crude.
You would seriously consider riding on these?

If I could buy through a known agent and somewhere I could get buyers protection... then worth a punt?

I understood that kona never produced a Ti P2 as the prototypes were just far too springy in all the wrong directions?

Buyer's protection against what?
The cost of maxillo-facial surgery?
