I would buy a Damascus bladed Native if it was actually made by Spyderco.
I would too! (Well, if I could afford it)

Actually, the blade steel specified on that one is listed as "440 vein", whatever that is.

Make sure to avoid the fake Gunting in this eBay auction.

MSG'd the guy I got the fake UKPK from and he's going to let me return and refund. He was really quick to be friendly and help me out on it. I was very happy/surprised. Now.. what am I going to get with that money?

First make sure you actually get the refund. From where I'm sitting, there are 3 likely scenarios:

1. You return the knife, seller does not refund --> You're screwed

2. You keep the knife, but give the seller a fair load of negative feedback, and inform the people at eBay that this person is selling fake items.

3. You return the knife, get your refund, and live happily ever after while the seller takes this minor loss and tries again on somebody else.

[quote="The Deacon"] Only obvious difference is that there are no channels in G-10 on left scale for clip mounting, while the real one is ambi TU. Aside from that, it's impossible to tell, at least from a picture, that it's a fake.QUOTE]

The only other thing I might be seeing is the clip screwhead might be slightly larger in diameter than the rest of the screws which makes the wire appear to not run parallel - as I sit here and examine my UKPK.

Outside of that, it is a phenomenal looking copy.
