Yea I noticed a few of those as well and thought "wow that looks fake and its shipping from the US (supposedly)"clonewarsvet wrote:I hate to do this on Christmas day but I've been watching a certain seller on eBay and it just gets my goat that people are bidding on these auctions. I just had to make an account to report this. Handle is t_amena_oyuno3
I strongly suspect this seller is peddling fakes, mostly Spydies but also other commonly faked brands.
Here's a finished auction for a CF pm2 that's marked "s30v." I'm pretty sure the real models were in s90v and the blade marking looks off in any case.

Every recent spydie he or she has sold is either commonly faked model and the limited pictures show the same characteristics as the known fakes.
I don't have a PM2 on hand, real or fake, but beyond the grind, I don't see anything that sets off any alarms. Have you checked the liners, screws, and jimping? The jimping looks backswept to me but I can't confirm from the pictures. Look up the comparisons on YouTube. There's also a reddit thread on it that's called something like "Spotting a Fake Paramilitary 2" that's more recent.H0bbs wrote:
