I'm pretty sure the liner lock Paramilitary 2 can be called a fake without purchasing one. Full non-nested liners, no spine jimping, different lock, suspiciously low price....yeah, I'm going to bet it's a fakeuidyn wrote:en,,,thanks for sharing, but how do you know that? Have you bought one?
I don't even see a lock mechanism on these PM2 clones.At least the ad is honest, I don't much mind people selling fakes for cheap as fakes being fully transparent. Some of those knives aren't too bad. I have an imitation catherman I picked up at a flea market for like 5 bucks, and it's not too poor an imitation. Seems like it would be useful for the same purpose, though I intend to likely get the real thing for more money eventually.Dutchy357 wrote:The pressure must be getting to Ali Express.

Includes the wording: Please note this is a imitated spyderco.
This is obviously Chinese Engrish for FAKE!
I'm not saying they are not fakes but you can not always look at the picture. They use pictures of actual Spyderco's sometimes.darkstar29 wrote:Just look at the knives, man.

Welcome to the forum. If budget is an issue, you should check out Spyderco's value line, as well as their "Byrd" branded knives.Mason777 wrote:I couldn't afford a real PM2, so I turned to aliexpress, I've got to say it isn't bad but you can see straight away it isn't real, I'm working on getting enough money together for the real thing but may take a while
I also want a dragonfly 2 but again I have no money:(
Ive only just got into knives and started with a Lansky World Legal, however it bored me and I wanted to move onwards but unfortunately all my money is going in my training for the army so that's my priority but as soon as I get in ill be getting several real different models and I can't wait
But back to the copy PM2 as I said it isn't bad, has a bit of play and obviously isn't S30V but I only really bought it to play with at home.
But I'm really excited to own a real one
Well saidTazKristi wrote: ↑Tue Aug 07, 2012 3:04 pmuidyn,uidyn wrote:en,,,thanks for sharing, but how do you know that? Have you bought one?
Welcome to the Spyderco Forum. I cannot tell you if we have purchased one or not. That is something our legal team handles. Just the same though, it is not necessary for us to buy one of anything from their site. We are the manufacturer, we can recognize a fake/copy quite easily. We have very loyal fans and we are very proud of what we do. We've spent over 33 years building our name and earning the reputation that we have. So when someone comes along and attempts to make a quick profit off of our hard work and our customer's loyalty to our name, we take that very seriously.
