    Is this real?

    I'm looking to get a Syperco knife and i found this one on ebay:

    http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Quality-s...cc1279d&_uhb=1

    Just wonder if its real or if anyone has experience with the buyer, price just seems to good to be true!

    For that price, it's most definitely a fake. Many people will tell you to stay away from eBay and stick to reputable dealers.

    It would be way too good to be true if the seller was in the USA. Most other countries impose some form of VAT/excise tax on imported knives, which only adds to the price. If the taxes in Australia are anything like those in the UK and EU, I suspect that, on a genuine Spyderco Military, they'd be greater than his BIN price.

    If it's too good to be true then most times it is not true. Nobody would sell a new genuine Spyderco for that price.

    30 bucks for a Military seems legit

    Welcome to the forums. If you don't live in the US finding a good dealer who has a good selection is a bit more difficult.
