    Fake Native III or not?

    Hello,

    I bought this Native III into a forum.
    Another Spyder fan tell methat it's a fake model.
    But a knives shop where I bought a lot of Spydies and who made a quick polish on my native not notice that is a fake.

    Can you help me to decide if it's a genuine one or not?

    Fake:
    Picture 2: Strange thumb texture
    Picture 10: Bad finish

    Genuine:
    Picture 3: The logo is well realised
    Picture 6: SG logo

    And the others pictures.

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm not a pro and don't even own a native 3, but from what I saw, this seems like a true psyderco from some years back.

    Review from a native 3 in 2005 :

    Owned : Broken tip ZDP-189 Endura, Mule Team 18, Mr Itou R2 180mm Gyoto
    In the wish list model list (even if I can't afford to spend more on knifes): *Yuna Qi 4.1 in K390*, ZDP-189 Ladybug, Chaparral or any K390 Spyderco decide to sprint in a folder design

    Seems legit but looks to have been messed with.
    We would rather be the knife in your pocket, because is "works" better, than the knife in your showcase, because it "looks" better.
