    Yup. Fake as a 3 dollar bill. There's a lot of people just getting into knives who know some brands but not the models. Plus the price is less than the real thing and people don't always remember that you get what you pay for.

    On the bottom right of the third pic there is a divot, or imperfection. It looks cheap. Real cheap.

    On the Spyderco forum there's a "Spyderco-like knock-offs" area where people report these. Sometimes Spyderco is able to get them shut down but these knock off "artists" are like vermin. There's just too many of them ripping off other people's ideas.

    I'm a little surprised to see its a US seller. He has a few other listed that aren't real either.

    It's in that ballpark. The blade shape(except the flipper) is pretty close, but the handle is way off.

    I also like it when sellers have a "rare" "limited edition" or "discontinued"...etc, but they have 10 listed. LOL

    I like how it is described as a "Flipper Lockback" the two are mutually exclusive. the shown blade is a flipper frame lock that someone drilled a hole in. So many things wrong with this blade.

    Box looks real enough. Slap on a Spyderco emblem and you can charge more for the same crappy knife. Instead of $8, they get $40.

    Actually the shape of the handle is almost dead on. He's just changed the colour and added some grooves to the handle.

    Nothing like selling a rare sprint for $40.

    Lucky our customs department here in Oz will confiscate them, so they won't get into the country.
    So we don't have to worry about fakes :D, shame they do the same to the real ones and any other one handed opening knives as well... :mad:

    Looks like a Southard and a Techno had a one night stand and crapped that POS out.

    Funny how that is encouraged in the SAK community. How else are we going to get Alox with scissors?
