Ah. Then not a single one of those, under that criteria.

No right or wrong answer. Me personally would consider the Selle Royal made-in-Italy Brooks Cambium saddles as a type of "the entire Brooks England range, expertly handcrafted in England since 1866"* knockoff.

*The web page with this claim shows the Cambiums (Cambia?).

And, "Tullio" has two "ells." So it wasn't signed by Tullio. Unless it was that goofy under-the-radar Tulio from my high school gym class ... Hmmmm, he did like bikes and the machine shop class ... How did he keep from getting killed by the gang?
