I need a knowledgeable person to help verify the authenticity of my recent ebay purchase. I thought the listing was from a reputable private seller and I paid what seemed fair market value for a Native 5 CPM REX 45 Sprint, C41PBORE5. Here is the listing

The knife appears to be legit but I noticed the action of the lockback is terribly gritty. I acknowledge that lock-backs are not the quick free falling action of PM 2 compression locks however, out of the box my delica was butter smooth by comparison (just heavy resistance from the spring bar). I also notice the end of the tang is different; a polished / beveled radius is present around the end of the tang from the notch cut out where the blade lock up occurs.

Here are pictures of what I received in the box.

To stand up straight with your shoulders back is to accept the terrible responsibility of life, with eyes wide open

Your knife is authentic. Everything looks correct, and sprints aren't really counterfeited.
