Fake Henckles?

i just recieved some "Henckles" knives - but taking a closer look at them i noticed that they do not have the signature "Twins" symbol on them. does this mean they're fakes? anybody know? thanks!

    If they really say "Henckles" then they're definitely fake. It's spelled Henckels.

      On the other hand, if it's spelled right, but the symbol is just one figure rather than the twins, that's one of their low-end lines made in China or Spain. We have one of the "Spain" models, and it's not a very good knife.
