Fake endura 4?

Postby Cave_Hermit » Thu Apr 12, 2018 6:16 pm

Hello guys this is my first post I’m new to the forums but have a few spyderco knives, I got this endura 4 at a pawn shop without the box I’m just wandering if it is authentic and the spyderco site directed me to ask you experts :) thanks guys.

I'm certainly not the best expert but that looks real to me

Typically the fake Japanese Spyderco's will have the words laser etched that say Spyderco VG10 and Japan but these look stamped as they should be. Jimping looks clean and neat. I think it's legit but there are people on here who consider themselves experts in the matter. Might wait for one of them to chime in.

I am not an expert, but, I have a couple of Enduras and it looks real to me. What makes you think it's a fake?

By the scale, and tang stamp it looks real.
You got a fine knife at good price I hope.

Check Les Garten Youtube channe. Unless the faker now upgrade their FRN molds, this looks good to me.

Thanks guys yeah I got it for $40 Australian dollars ($31 USD) and that’s a very good price here, I don’t think the pawn shop knew what a spyderco knife was and it is in good condition after I cleaned it and sharpened it on my sharpmaker. Thanks Sal and everyone for the welcome!

It looks legit and also nearly new, to boot. That price would be a bargain in the USA!

They don't seem to know (If it's not one of the well known big names).

Very Good pick up
3 x Endura 1 SE, 1 x Endura ? CE and a Black Pacific Salt. Want Aqua Salt, Fish Hunter and a Pacific Salt Yellow.

Hey mate I just thought it was too good of a price to be real but as someone mentioned I don’t think a lot of pawn shops know much about cutlery.

Well I told the guy at the pawn shop to call if any knives come in and he said he has ‘one of those ladybug logo knives shaped like a broken japanese sword’ he can’t send pics and won’t hold it for me but come Monday I’ll check it out it sounds like it’s a spyderco ronin or Yojimbo!
