Try to get it on amazon, or at a surplus store. I've done both and they've worked for me

I've purchase a few Spydercos recently from "outfittercountry" and "whitemountainknives".
Great service from them both, and great knives of course !

Knife looks legit, but my washers have holes in it. Also I have 2 washers per side.

Thanks for you advice, problem is i live in Sweden and i pay $23 every time it crosses the border to Sweden otherwise sending the knife back would be the ideal thing to do.
Ever checked Lamnia?

Cheers
Agreed. My experiences exactly. You have the real item.

If you are worried about getting a fake; buy from a smaller retail store that specializes in knives. They have a reputation to maintain and would never willingly sell you a fake. These include (but are not limited to) National Knives, Knife Center, Blade HQ, Cutlery Shoppe, and Knife Works.
