So... with the new lawsuit, it turns out it's eBay that's not doing the right thing.

There’s many companies that are getting cloned by overseas companies were laws are not reinforced.
Electronic cigarette companies now use scratch off codes for verification and it actually works very good.
Let’s say you buy a kangertech device sealed in plastic.On box under plastic there’s a scratch off that reveals a 6-12 digit or letter code.You go to thier website enter code and if codes never been used ,you got an authentic item.
If 7 random digits are used then odds it’s not a clone are 1 in a million.If code is repeated its probably a clone.
I buy many authentic items this way and it’s a very satisfying feeling when it says number has never been used so it’s authentic.

However, please keep in mind, there are many things going on behind our doors that we cannot discuss here. Ultimately, having "Bob's" auction taken down is not always in our best interest. Does it cause an issue for "Bob"? Of course, but it may not have any affect on the bigger picture.

Our biggest resource though in this constant battle is you. The links that ya'll post here are key to our ability to address this issue. Not just on EBay, but on the internet as a whole. As I said when I started this sub-section, we would never be able to duplicate the number of eyes on this problem in-house compared to all of you. You are highly educated on the topic of Spyderco and byrd. You are interested and motivated and you genuinely care.

So, please keep doing what you're doing. Post links when you find questionable items. It may not seem like it, but I promise, we are looking and we are following up with each and every post.

Spyderco takes great pride in what we do. 33 years of hard work, our commitment to quality high-performance products and always striving to do business in a fair and proper manner is not something were willing to sit back and watch get diluted or worse.

We sincerely thank you, each of you, for looking out for us. It does not go unnoticed and it is always appreciated.


New to forum but owner of a Spyderco for 30+ years (still going strong !). I must have purchased it only a couple of years after Spyderco started (without realising it).

Just recently been looking for more and on ebay Australia seem to be a huge number of fake Spyderco's being offered from China,
logo and all!

Will try to post links in the next 7 days.

Now that the Chinese selling cheap FAKE Spyderco knives have become less, someone on eBay AUS has started selling fakes at high prices with a listing using the words 'Spyderco OEM'.

It's a never ending battle!

I did report the listing(s) but don't think it will do much good.
