Greetings all. I finally ordered my first Spyderco after carrying Kershaw and Case knives my entire life. The reviews of the pm2 were so good that I could no longer resist. However, after reading some of the forums, I am concerned that I may have a counterfeit knife. There are 3 reasons for this.
1) As you can see in the photos, the lettering is very much angled. After looking at the photos on the Spyderco site, it seems that is is supposed to be more parallel.
2) The plunge on the blade is not even close to being even on both sides.
3) Opening the blade is not smooth at all. I can flick it open with a significant amount of wrist action but it doesn't seem to be as buttery smooth as the ones I have seen in youtube reviews. Most of the blades I see in reviews just fall due to gravity when the compression lock is disengaged. Mine does not move at all when disengaged.
Thanks in advance for all of the help.
