    Para mill 2 + questions?? black liners

    Hi guys, my first post here . Sadly its in this section..
    I became interested in the paramilitary 2 sometime back & started my usual research before jumping in blindly. I found out quickly that a lot of fakes had begun to saturate the market. After waiting patiently, I finally found the model I wanted for sale in slightly used condition (C81GBK2). After it arrived I was happy to see the thumb jumping was slanted & there was no indent (very small like a micro choil at the beginning of the grind - a dead giveaway of a knockoff). Also the cutaway for accessing the compression lock was correct & the pivot screw took a larger bit than the scale/body screws. A couple other details matched up also.
    OK rambling out of the way - I just came across a para 2 camo/black with DLC coated liners & lock bar. It looks sick, but is this an improvement as Spyderco is well known for adding or another giveaway of a fake?? The knife looks leget but the date code on the box was DL (4\12) thats a red flag to me.

    Anyway here's my baby - I pretty sure she's real

    OK right after I posted this & then posted on another thread (3 double taps by accident - sorry the forum was really messed up glad its back up now). I checked "that Chinese import site" & found that exact knife with black liner's... That fake just sold for $170 I feel for the poor guy that bought it... This counterfeit thing has gotten out of hand...
