Red/Hap40 Delica x 2 and a pre-CQI S35VN G10 Native that should have been sent the first time, but they sent me the S30V instead. I hope that Spyderco changes model #s and upc codes in the future when making CQI changes to the blade steel. Lots of confusion around the Native changes.
Got the S35VN Native today and it is clearly a fake. Awesome! This is a reputable eBay dealer that I have dealt with before, so I assume some unscrupulous buyer did a return and shipped a fake back to them, which went unnoticed by their warehouse folks, who then shipped it to me. Pretty good fake to be honest. The majority of folks who dont lurk this forum probably would have zero idea, and I bet half the forumites wouldnt even be able to tell. Hard to train a warehouse worker to spot fakes on thousands of different items, especially when they are this good. Im confident I will get it resolved with the seller. Just sucks that this is so prevalent as this is part of the reason knives are so expensive. Dealers need to make more money to cover losses on theft and fraud.
Wishing for in 2019: Native, Native LW, and CQI Military in 3V and CRUWEAR, Military Salt in Day glow yellow G10 with H1 SE and LC200N PE, Blacked out Native Salts and Dfly2 Salts, Chaparral LW Salt in H1 SE and LC200N PE, Jester Salts in H1 SE and PE with GITD FRN scales, Native Salt sprint with a Vanax blade and GITD scales.
Impatiently waiting for: LC200N Pacific Salts, CRUWEAR Shaman
