Agree and I've done the same, reported.

But agree with poster below you, I doubt these are fake.

Wait. Sal says these are not out yet. You guys say they are real. Are you implying that someone inside Spyderco stole these and sold them to a pawn shop in Colorado? Shouldn't these be in Spyderco's possession? I'm curious. How else would they get into a pawn shop?

How do you make a fake of something that isn't on the market yet ?

And the fact that they clearly state production sample.

And that they are close to Spyderco.

So on that basis I'd lean towards not being fake.

Sorry, bad assumption

But still Spyderco has more fakes out there than any other company that I've seen on eBay

I don't look for fakes so wouldn't know. And only know about fakes from here.

Surely other companies knives get copied ?

The plot thickens.. What's with the withdrawal of the original post rycen?
Eagerly awaiting explanation from Spyderco because i don't understand what's going on. If the knives are counterfeit/copies they/the pirates are setting a new record since the knife is not yet available?

Yes.

The fastest I've heard of a China copy being made was a Golf club (Driver) by (I think) Callaway.

Released in US, flown overnight to China, copied and made and a few copies returned to the US within 3-5 days. The company couldn't believe how quickly the fakes hit the market.

The speed the Chinese can make samples is unbelievable.

Me thinks the deletion of thread title has something to do with something hitting the fan !

No conspiracies, just thought it was better kept private for now.
