Hey folks, sorry for the late reply, hectic last day and half... l've been comparing the shape, mechanics, lockup, 'feel' of my new specimen particularly the SS Police that I bought from National Knives. They feel identical in every conceivable way. I would swear I've seen this model before, but not in a couple yeaers. Comparing their spines, blades, lockup, everything, it just feels like the SS model with G10 slapped over it instead...
...any further angles or shots wanted?
Hey, I'm replying to try to help give one more input that this is 100% definitely a fake you bought. Sorry you're in that position of having gotten screwed over. It seems like you are trying to convince yourself it must be real but I'd bet lots of money it is a fake. That is how sure I am just based on your photos.
I'd hate to see you waste even more money by paying shipping to and from Spyderco to mail to them just for them to also confirm what several of us have been trying to suggest in this thread. Can you send it back and get fully refunded?
I don't personally care to see more angles or photos, but since you asked and I think it would help YOU realize it is a fake you could post photos showing close ups of the "Spyderco VG-10" and "Seki City Japan" and the "POLICE and bug logo" that will make it all the more undeniable this is not legitimate.
It's a crazy world we live in that fakes are such a problem.
