Is my delica 4 fake?

Postby lord_kinboat » Thu Jan 05, 2017 9:46 am

I bought this on amazon (sold and shipped by them) and it came in the correct packaging. I have no reason to believe it is fake but after seeing how good the fakes are it got me paranoid. This is my knife http://imgur.com/a/GFpol

Not seeing anything that jumps out and screams FAKE!!!. Still, if you're paranoid, the only way to know for sure would be to send it to Spyderco, along with $5 for return postage, for verification.

UPDATE, I contacted spyderco about my concern. The representative informed me that amazon gets their stock of knives directly from spyderco. This means that as long as you purchase from amazon youre in the clear.

Unfortunately, that's not necessarily true. See the links below.

The knife was able to shave the hair off of my arm when it was new. Not sure if a fake could do that

The thing is - you have to see if the product is fulfilled by Amazon or an outside supplier. Amazon will stand behind their fulfillment and will shut down a counterfeit supplier once they know about it. That's my understanding anyway.

The gleam of the VG10 looks real and the FRN teeth near the middle logo raised platform is consistent with real too.
My knowledge is about Endura 4, so I might be wrong, but it seems legit.

Check Les Garten YouTube channel to learn more. I did.
