    It was seeing one of these advertised that convinced me to go and buy a genuine Sharpmaker.

    Very good for kitchen knives.

    The Delica and Endura, to the best of my knowledge, have no copies.

    So you can carry something like a 27cm traditional Navaja, as long as it's concealed?

    Does the dealer sell a lot of Spyderco knives? Where are they located? Google is your friend.

    To be honest they look and weigh about the same (apparently fakes are much heavier (20 grams?)), the...

    If you want to keep cutting cardboard I suggest grabbing the ZDP-189 Delica. You'll want diamonds for sharpening but I can't see it going dull for a very very long time.

    Your best insurance is buying from a reputable seller.

    If the seller is in China then you're probably not looking at an authentic knife.

    That's an interesting looking folder.

    A 10mm thick tanto blade, where much of the blade is 10mm wide up close to the tip would be stronger than a 10mm FFG which has a definite taper to the point.

    Basically on eBay look for sellers with a lot of positive feedback, who stock a lot of knives, and are based in the USA.

    You're unlikely to go wrong with those guidelines.
