I'm hoping someone with knowledge of Spyderco history can help me here. I recently purchased a used Worker and was admittedly trigger happy when I did so, as I let the prospect of snagging a vintage Spyderco get the better of my senses. Afterwards, I did some digging around on Spydiewiki to see what variant I ended up getting, and I don't see a listing that matches mine. I'm just hoping I didn't purchase a counterfeit of some sort and would appreciate any help either verifying authenticity or lack thereof.
The main detail that has me in doubt is from Spydiewiki. It notes an original 2 screw clip version with thin handle slabs. The next version had a 3 screw clip with a thick handle slab on the clip side. Even later versions had the 3 screw clip with thick handle slabs on both sides. From what I understand, the thick handle slabs feature chamfering but the thin slabs are just flat with a 90 degree transition to the spine. Based on this, I think what I have is a 3 screw clip with thin handle slabs on both sides. If that's the case...does that mean this is a fake? If it is, the hunt continues for a vintage stainless-handled non-sprint Worker to add to my collection.
Thanks in advance for your help and comments!
Edit: and Happy Mother's Day everyone!
