Actually it is easy to find in google. You can try next time by yourself
Thanks, I was more worried of buying one second hand on other websites with B/S/T, so that if a deal came up that was too good to pass up I would to be a bit more self aware.Parhelion wrote:Fake has single drilled hole (to reduce weight) in each liner.
Real has single in the left liner and two holes in the right liner.
+1 Especially on the pics. Some sellers might take pics of a real one and send you the fake, too.The Deacon wrote:Problem is, a lot of the "red flags" are hard to spot in photos, especially the low quality ones some folks use in their B/S/T posts. Then too, Spyderco's policy of "constant quality improvement" pretty much insures there will be small visual differences between the oldest PM2's and the ones being produced today. As for the presence or absence of a small unsharpened spot at the tang end of the blade, genuine Spydercos are ground by hand, so that can vary from knife to knife within a model. Your safest bet is to realize that any deal that sounds "too good to pass up" probably should be passed up, especially when the knife in question is in high demand, short supply, and fairly accurate fakes of it are known to exist. With the PM2 and a couple other models, the only time I might go against that advice would be if the knife had a Spyderco Collectors Club number on the blade, since I've yet to see a CC#'ed fake.
