    I have heard there are some fake Spydercos out there for sale. What is the best way to tell a fake from the real thing?

    Depends on the knife, I know that fake para2s are prevalent. 1. Way to tell is if it's priced stupidly low of its on a Chinese based website. If you still end up with one. Look at the etching on the blade like the "golden Colorado", it will be less crisp. Also, the hardware are much less crisp and the g-10 isn't grippy at all.

    Dake: Best way to learn the differences and telltale signs is to find YouTube videos that compare a genuine and a fake version of the specific Spyderco model that you are looking to buy. For example, search for "Spyderco Dragonfly fake," and watch 2-3 of the first 10 results. Other than physical attributes, price appears to be another factor to watch. If the price is too good to be true, it probably is.

    At least for the Dragonfly, the fakes appear easy to identify, once you know what to look for. Thankfully, the dozen or so Spyderco knives I've bought to date are clearly genuine.

    Fake Dragonflies you say? I love my real Dflys... but I'd SRM or one of those guys made a FRN Wharncliffe with liners, I might bite! Then its not copying, right? How do I get into corporate knife making decisions? I missed my calling.

    Hi all. Recently got an endura 4 ffg. My first spydie ever and I don't know why I have been putting it off for so long. I'm wondering how the saber holds up. I like ffg knives but the tip on this one seems a bit delicate. So please some input on the two. Kind regards.

    Had both and gave the Sabre away, I felt that although the Sabre blade was a Beast It just didn't cut and slice as nicely as i want an edc blade to.

    I prefer the ffg and have had no issues with the tip. If I want to go hard on a blade i will take a fixed blade.

    I love the Endura but I would have to say the blade on the PM2 has the best of both worlds, an FFG you can have a bit more confidence in. In fact, if Spyderco could make an Endura /PM2 hybrid I think i would have something resembling my perfect folder! IE: no choil, more blade.

    Thanks. It's not for very hard use. Just every day tasks. As for slicing I always pair up with a small utility knife. So no problem there. Was just wondering about the tip. For hard use I will always use the proper tool.

    To be honest I have never heard anyone say they broke the tip off an Endura ffg, although I imagine it wouldn't be too hard if you tried to.

    Anyone out there ever broke the tip off an FFG Endura?
