Thanks. Maybe multiple reports will help ebay get their head out and remove it.

I love when people use the word "Style" to feel it gives them the right to put up a patent infringing Chinese knockoff....

Thanks guys. Nothing more than i expected, i was never in danger of bidding. I just feel sorry for the poor slob who ends up with a 'great deal' on a Gunting.

Unfortunately, filing fakes reports with ebay never results in thier pulling listings anymore.

Is this a fake?

Ebay link

It does not have the dimple or a swedge, and the lock is on the wrong side. IIRC, Sal does not usually release pre-production prototypes.

So, what's the verdict--Real or Fake?

Thanks!

To be honest, I prefer the knife-bst.com board for Spyderco buying/selling... Bladeforums is bigger, but bigger isn't always better. There are quite a few Spyderco sales through the existing forum, and although it woul be nice to make sorting through them easier, it works just fine. If anything, su...

New Bladeforums dedicated Spyderco for sale sub forum

Greetings, Spark put up a thread in the feedback forum asking for ideas for new sub forums, and a dedicated Spyderco for sale forum was suggested and is getting some traction. The idea would be similar to the Buck or Busse dedicated for sale forums, the reason being that Spyderco is a dominant playe...

Does this ddtcity guy ever bid on any other sellers' auctions? If not, then I would probably say your right. ddtcity bought 29 Surefire flashlights and Spyderco knives from an ebay seller named " tacticaltool " between Nov 8, 2008 and Dec 13, 2008. There may be more, however I did not look any furt...

The Salt was again the star in the fourth and final episode of Feasting on Waves "Won Love", making its initial appearance on Salt Island, of all places. Later in the show, the "boss" appeared to be using a different Salt model to chop food, as while Alton's was serrated, his appeared to be PE. The ...

English please, guys! heh. Well, after much searching, I cannot locate the discs that have the drivers for the NIC or the Antivirus (assuming Dell ever provided them).

*sigh* Well there is good news and bad news. The f12 trick worked, and I was in the process of using the recovery utility until it asked for an administrator password. I never set up an admin PW, but it apparently has one anyway, so that was a dead end. Thus I opted to reinstall XP. After an hour of...

Hi Ron and Percival, thanks for chiming in. The computer fails to boot from Dell's supplied Win XP SP2 "Reinstall disc". The disc does not suggest that it has any "recovery" abilities, and unless I am mistaken, I am not able to boot from it based on the files in its root directory (autorun, readme, ...

Saturday Update

Well after much fiddling with the BIOS, I got the computer to boot off of the Drive Medic recovery disk. It looked good until... INVALID OPCODE (a bunch of digits). sigh. Unfortunately, I can't even get it to a C: command prompt, so I fear that I have more problems than just the registry. As far as ...

The OEM recovery disk didn't recover anything, though the BIOS is showing lots of discs that it is not capable of booting from, that I have no idea where they are (I have 2 optical and one HD only) unless they are partitions. Today I picked up Iolo's System Mechanic, as it comes with "Drive Medic" e...

Long story short:

Can anyone help other than to recommend taking it in to the geeks? I would rather fix this myself if possible.

Thanks!
