Re: Did Anyone Purchase Cold Steel December 2020

Between myself and my two oldest boys, our household was on a bit of a Cold Steel buying frenzy in December...three Wasps, two Counter Point XLs, two War Hawks, two Gladius Machetes, Royal Kukri Machete, S35VN Immortal, AUS8A Ti-Lite, Luzon.

Re: What the heck is this??

It's genuine, it's been heavily customized, and it's a pre-CQI example with the more slanted plunge grind.

Re: Not sure what this is.

That's not a fake Spyderco, just a mislabeled knife. He probably bought the whole lot at an estate sale and has no idea what he's selling. The knife was in a Spyderco box, therefore it's a Spyderco as far as he's concerned. Even if he does know what he's selling and is acting in bad faith, simply mi...

They're both fake, and reported to eBay.

Re: Not sure what this is.

In the listing, the seller specifies exactly which buyers are getting the item of significant value, in compliance with the rules. FIRST GRAB BAG ORDER GETS 1 OF 2 SPYDERCO KNIVES!!!

Re: Not sure what this is.

eBay has rules for grab bag listings, but it looks like the seller is following the rules... "Listings that offer an opportunity to win an item by chance or contest are not allowed. This includes mystery items, giveaways, lotteries, sweepstakes, random drawings, raffles, and contests. Listings that ...

Re: Something different i'm going after

Ganzo is generally considered a bad actor in the knife industry. They clone designs by Spyderco, Benchmade and others with impunity, even going as far as taking a stolen axis lock design and cramming it into a stolen PM2 pattern. Sal had a bad encounter with Ganzo employees in the past, at a trade s...

Re: 'nother fake PM2

It's definitely fake. The print is wrong, there's no jimping on the thumb ramp or choil, the screws are wrong, the clip is wrong, Sal's mark is hilariously crooked and in the wrong place, etc. That's probably the worst fake I've seen in a while.

Re: fake PM2 with conflicting info

I'm pretty sure eBay is just ignoring reports lately. I report around 100 fake Spydercos per month, and about 1/3 of those are counterfeit PM2s. I haven't seen a single listing get pulled in the past two months.

That guy sells tons of fake PM2s. I've reported his listings many times, but eBay doesn't do anything about it.

Re: Recs for Self Defense while running/biking?

I would be incredibly cautious about buying a Spyderco at a gun show. Around here, the gun shows are absolutely loaded with counterfeits.

It's definitely real.

I've seen that same slight finish variation on black PM2 clip screws many times.

Re: Question on another brand's heat treat and such

Naperville - you have a history on BF which brings your impartiality into question. History? Impartiality?

Re: Question on another brand's heat treat and such

The many relevant criticisms of BRK are indisputable facts, and go well beyond the opinions of BF members. BF is just a one-stop shop for the OP to get all of the information quickly.

I would suggest visiting Bladeforums and doing some research on BRK. Heat treatment may be the least of your worries.

Re: Tenacious C122GBOR in stock anywhere

The knife you're looking for (C122GPBOR) was released by Cutlery Shoppe in 2017 and is long gone. The only place you're going to find one is somewhere like eBay. https://cutleryshoppe.com/spyderco-c122gpbor-tenacious-3-39-black-finish-plain-edge-8cr13mov-blade-orange-g-10-handle-cutlery-shoppe-exclu...

The list is outdated because the thread is almost two years old. K390, 10V and 4V have also been added to the lineup in the interim.
