Hi folks I was wondering if anyone could help me out with an authenticity question or give any background on this Spyderco Cat I recently purchased.
It is a 440C version from back in 2011, NOS I believe. It is from a smaller Spyderco dealer but a legit one to my knowledge.
Anyway after receiving the knife and looking at it I thought it was odd that the back side of the blade wasn't marked with Taiwan, as pretty much every other Spyderco I own has an origin marking. Anyone know if some Cat's came without a Taiwan marking? Most of the pictures and YouTube videos I've seen show it with Taiwan on the non-show side of the blade. I didn't think this would be a model that has clones out there.
