    Is this Spin a real Spyderco or a knock-off???

    Hi Everyone,

    I need some help. Someone has just told me that this Spyderco Spin of mine is a fake. I'm a bit stressed now because I really do not believe it is a fake, but after seeing some Spyderco Forum posts about possible fake Spins that look almost exactly like real ones I don't know what conclusion to draw. The reasons this person gave me for this knife being fake are:

    "First, the box doesn't have the name/model #/barcode as Spyderco knives do. Second, It is finished differently than Spyderco Etched knives are (I have 2 of them).
    Third, It weighs about 0.75 grams more than the Spyderco knife. And lastly, the engravings on the blade are much finer/lighter than the real thing."

    Do all acid etched Spins have the same exact etch pattern? Can someone confirm or deny with certainty whether this is a real Spyderco or a knock-off??? I would greatly appreciate any feedback! Thank you.

    I found a thread on Blade Forums discussing this same exact thing! This knife is a fake... the etching & Torx screws give it away (when you compare a close-up picture of the real thing versus this one). Damn Chinese forgers! These people are ridiculous!
