This thread is meant to inform the naive so they do not get tricked into buying a fake.
Here is one I reported last week and even wrote to the seller but as you can see it went until auction end like most of them do and someone got took thinking they own a Spyderco.
It's a real beauty...
Here is one that is still an active auction so I won't post a link but here is a pic...
Nice pinky nail. Pathetic!
Here are a few more I have on my PC that I have ran across over the last few months. There is a brand called "NAVY" that is pretty good at pumping out the fakes. Sadly there are a lot more.
More knock offs and fakes:
You get the picture

Here is another one of the UKPK. Pretty good fake on this one. It took a few minutes to figure it out. I will post the link since it is an auction that has ended.
Blatant rip off using Spydero's name...
And a few more for your consideration if you have a strong stomach. I do have the link to the web site but an hesitant to post due to forum rules. The site actually lists more of them I just don't have time this morning to upload.
Spyderco 982 Pocket Folding Knife #696
Spyderco HL762 Discoloration 2.5'' Tactical Folding Knife
Spyderco Protable Pocket Knife Red #156
Spyderco Tactical Knife S30V Plain Edge Blade Aluminum Handle
Spyderco Spyderfly Hardness 4'~!# Blade Tactical Leather Sheath
Spyderco VS-10 Tactical Folding Knife #234
Spyderco Spyderfly Smallfly Training Butterfly Knife #620
and the last entry is the infamous one that has flooded the Ebay market over the last year. I have also seen this one on Ebay in silver.
Spyderco 119B Tactical Pocket Knife #421
I know. It's kinda scary isn't it? I'm almost ashamed to admit that I have one of those. One time I was on Ebay and pulled up items under ending soonest. I saw one like it and it only had a bid a 5 bucks with less than 10 seconds in the auction so I bid without paying attention. Luckily I got it for 5.11 so I didn't get screwed too bad. The pivot is about the size of a toothpick haha. It's a real POS.
There is also another one of those blue beauties but it won't let me save image in a postable format and since I can't post a link to a live auction, just know it's out there.
Merry Christmas Spydernuts!!
