@TazKristi Thanks for your welcome, i've been a contributing member on BF for years now and all my non-budget knives are Spydercos, i've got four original models. Small collection but reasonably so. Before that, i did get my hands filthy from AliExpress knives which sported the
logo and also cross checked with the many fake comparison videos on Youtube, so i know a thing or two about the topic. I agree that the FRN having "sharp" edges is not the best indicator (but in the case of Endura4 and Delica4 it can
be the starting point) but apparently you guys don't really want to shout out loud the red flag detail for some reason. I guess for the op it's good enough to know the official confirmation from your part and move on from there. I have no problem with that.
