Nice price !!! I won a bid for my Tenacious on Ebay for 21.00 shipped Best 21 bucks I spentsmitty704 wrote:I purchased a spyderco tenacious tonight on eBay from username "unitedoutdoors". It was for $29.99 shipped. I think this is a pretty good deal, and was curious it this sounds to good to be true, or is this a pretty reasonable price seen lots of times before. Also, has anyone heard of there being any fake "tenacious" models, or is this not an expensive enough model for the need to manufacture a fake?
And hello to everyone here, I am new to this forum. Great to be on a knife forum for a change, I pretty much live on gun forums.
Simplest way is to purchase your knives from reputable dealers. I won't suggest that it's all inclusive, but this thread contains the names of quite a few of them.Deal4 wrote:Hi still quite new to Spyderco, and the reason that attracted me was Spderco's famous quality. But, with so many knock offs floating around, I am starting to get a little leary.
Can anyone give me some good basic ideas of how to spot a fake out there in cyber space?
Like I said, I am very new to Spyderco, and can't spot a fake a mile away like so many of you can. Any hints for me?

I've yet to hear of anyone selling fake spyderco products on the bladeforum exchange, so i would consider it to be a safe source for older and/or used knives.
If shopping ebay for spyderco, avoid sellers located in china like the plague. Have not seen one yet that sells legitimate spyderco products. Beyond that, this section is an excellent resource. When in doubt, check it out.
Also pays to keep in mind that this problem is by no means unique to spyderco. Knives of every major brand get copied and their names and logos get tacked onto designs they never made.
That looks legitimate, it's a spot.Andreas wrote:Although there are only 2 hours left for the auction, I would still like to show this item which I believe is to be a fake Swick.

Maybe I'm wrong and this is an actual real Spyderco?
I guess that ethics are optional for some jewellers in Houston.Eagle has been making these for years- they get by the copyright by having a plastic "Bandit" insert in it. Too bad you can't read "Serrated Spyderco Delica" S T Y L E.
