I have uploaded some photos of a blade here. Can Anyone help me with the authenticity of this blade? Is it real or fake? To me, bty logo seems suspicious, but I need advise from acknowledged ones.

Thanks in advance. Here are the uploaded links of the blade:

That looks like the old butterfly logo to me. Why does that look suspicious to you? Any specific thing that concerns you in the logo?

its like there is a little fattened part(or a bump maybe?) at one of the butterfly's wings' lower part; silver tag at the bottom of the handle. And it is actually on one of the 2nd hand sale platforms on the web, overall suspicious coming from there actually Embarrassed

The serial number looks highly suspicious to me. Also the colour of the handle looks a little different. (Colour might be also due to wrong  white balance)
Font of the serial number does not look like the one I have.

The wings look wrong, but it could be caused by distortion created by camera angle.  If you have access to the real one (from other people at the club) you can compare side by side to see.  The fake one (or from your picture) the wings is longer (come down to the lower part of the handle).  You can even look at the picture from butterlyonline and compare it to your blade.

Also, if you look closer at the bh lens, you'll see Butterfly is spelled Butefly.
