Nice guy, he let you return yours and now he screwed somebody else. Maybe time for Kristi to warn eBay about that seller...aebfroman wrote:Its a fake. I've made the mistake of buying one >.< but at least the guy let me return.
One thing to note on the fake ones that stands out to me is the strange hazy looking area just above the bevel. The knife looks close to real but the quality is sheeeyit. Blade is made of, what appears to be, melted down beer cans and the blade contacts the back spacer when you close the knife. The spine wasn't even ground flat...
Did you click on the link I posted? Same pic, but different auction number and end date, May 23 vs June 15 for the one the OP posted.aebfroman wrote:How can you tell? The history is cut short past 90 days. There is only the one linked by the OP.
Those Enduras look perfectly legit to me. What looks "off" about them to you?LorenzoL wrote:The same seller posted two Enduras, they look fake to me, especially the second one:

Jim, as of the moment, the UKPK is the only total "clone" out there. It copies not only the design, but the markings of the original. Everything else either copies a design, but is marked in a way that should "give it away" to anyone with even minimal knowledgeable of Spyderco knives (like the NAVY marked Lil Temp knockoff) or copies some Spyderco design elements, but in a "model" Spyderco never produced (like that "damascus" bladed Native/Native III mash-up and the oversize Rookie/undersized Police), or slaps Spyderco's name and logos on a knife which is obviously not a Spyderco (like that "thing" with the thumb stud and the rear mounted Wischard snap).MountainManJim wrote:I too was going to bid on this one, but decided it was far from new. I'm glad I didn't, but wow we really need to be careful to review every knife.
So, what is everyone yard stick for judging a knife and determining if it's a fake? I was thinking of opening up Spyderco catalog website and comparing. With this I can go through the knife point by point.
