Real or fake Delica 4? Thanks in advance

Postby Str8NyCe » Thu Aug 16, 2018 2:36 pm

In my search to become EDGE-u-cated, I will greatly appreciate it if anyone can let me know if my Delica 4 is real or fake. It was purchased on Amazon for the normal price at that time of $65. I will provide links down below, thanks so much guys!

Below are Delica 4 pics:

Got this today at a garage sale, kinda dull took it to a guy that sharpens knives. He told me it was a knock off and would give me my 10$ back for it. It sounded shady so I tried to look it up can’t find a whole lot about it. Anyone have any ideas if it’s real or not? He said since the spider wasn’t on the blade it’s fake.

99.99% chance it's a real Spyderco Military made about 20 years ago. Very nice find, very collectible knife, and the guy who told you it's fake is an idiot.

Saw this when negotiating on a used Spydie.

Think this might be fake, based on price and location

Been a long time since I've posted, but I spend about an hour a day reporting sellers offering knock-offs as the real thing. I'm sick of seeing people fall for it and pay real Spyderco prices. They have no idea that they've been duped, and Ebay never does anything about the sellers that I report. I have gone so far as to purposefully overbid on counterfeit knives and then not pay, citing that the knife is a counterfeit. Sometimes, all I have to do is win the auction, and the seller will immediately cancel my order, knowing that I'm knowledgeable enough to know that they're scamming. I've called Ebay CS multiple times and they always give some convoluted "we can't keep track of every listing" type of answer. The problem is, I've been sending multiple reports on some sellers for months now and they continue to operate unimpeded, selling $25 knives for $160. I sell some Spydercos on Ebay and it hurts that I'm only making $20-30 a knife on the real deal while these guys are making a fortune duping the innocent. It degrades from Spyderco's reputation as well as hurting my income. Before the counterfeits really started hitting, I had a pretty successful knife business on Ebay - now, I'm constantly being questioned if my knives are authentic and have seen a steady decline in sales as the counterfeiters move in en masse on Ebay. I'm trying but Ebay seems more concerned with making a $ than busting the bad guys. Spyderco, you need to move now and shut these guys down.

I have seen a number of Harpies with the making "SEK-CITY Japan", that is "SEK" instead of "SEKI". Has anybody else seen the same thing, and if so are these knives cheap knock-offs?

There's a fake Tenacious with light blue scales for sale on ebay.
It's located in Bulgaria, with worldwide shipping. The listing doesn't mention any model name, but the knife is claimed to be a Spyderco.

The seller is a newly created account and also offers a fake Squeak for sale.

Hello, new to this forum and Spyderco.
Anyone have experience with this Ebay seller? Looks like the best deal for this knife. Too good to be true?
Thanks.

Hi, etn06448:
Welcome to our forum. I would highly recommend that you not purchase that knife. You know what they say about things that seem too good to be true.

We hope you enjoy your time with us.

I know a lot of folks cannot not afford to buy some of the knives retail and look for bargains on ebay, Amazon and Craig's list. IMHO I buy direct from Spyderco - yes, prices are not discounted but I save up until I can afford one. Plus I know I am getting a genuine Spyderco, the customer support is outstanding and I am supporting a company that makes great knives. When I am in Denver, I also go to the outlet in Golden - prices are discounted at the Spyderco outlet. Thanks, Sal for making great knives.

I have to admit I was too intrigued by a $30 Spyderco Police for sale on eBay to pass it up. My biggest surprise was how authentic it looked, down to the box and paperwork. It actually fooled me, briefly, until I used it for a few days, and the edge dulled quickly. It shipped from Amsterdam, but the listed point of origin was China.
https://www.ebay.com/itm/Spyderco-Knife ... ctupt=true.
There are several other sellers, with identical listings. I got the C model, Stainless steel.
I have a Spyderco Catcherman, and a Grasshopper (my EDC). Both are real, and well worth the money. You get what you pay for. Can you buy from the factory directly, to insure you get the real deal??
Every day is a gift.
