View Full Version : Real or Fake?

Help me learn. Is this the real deal or an imposter? My gut says fake but heck, I've certainly been wrong before. Just curious.:o
If you read the description it sounds like this has come up before. :confused:

Fake, including the printed Damascus.

Thank you. It didn't look right but like I said, I have been wrong before.

In his description, the seller even says he had contact from a "self-acknowledged expert" who challenged the authenticity of the knife. Yet he shrugs it off and keeps on flogging it.
As fake as it gets. These fake ones are all over internet.

LOL at the dude's hostility...yeah, because you have to be an "expert" to identify a knife that has never been produced by Spyderco and is a common knockoff as being fake..I guess there are hundreds of "experts" on this forum then.
It pisses me off that he still calls it a "beautiful Spyderco". What a sham, it gives Spyderco a bad name. Coincidentally, believe that I was the "self-acknowledge expert" (improper wording, he means "self-proclaimed") who told him it was fake last time. I certainly never claimed to be an expert, I just said that I know what versions of the Native have been produced, and that that one is fake. He got all pissy, and said I was attacking his morals.
I have no problem with him, except if he tries to pass it off as real once he knows it's fake. The scum that rips off people's hard work and good name by copying it are to blame IMO.
PS-I think the dude got ripped off and overpaid for them, now he's really pissed when he hears the truth, he wants other people to pay for his mistake.

Especially love the "purchased at an estate sale" line. If P. T. Barnum had just recently died, I might believe him. As things stand, not so much.

I like this part:
"he last knife sold for thirty eight dollars plus and the buyer was apparently very happy with it"
That buyer was the sucker P.T. Barnum spoke of. Wonder what happens when they send these to Spyderco for work or repair.

This guy again? Looks like I have to report him...again. This is about as blatantly fake as it gets, coming in second only to that tanto-bladed, spider-webbed counterfeit you see as well all over ebay.

That buyer was the sucker P.T. Barnum spoke of. Wonder what happens when they send these to Spyderco for work or repair.They find out the sad truth, but probably too late to leave the negative feedback that seller so richly deserves.
