Well known. But CHINA fakes knives never made in China.
pretty sad and very blatant example of what I consider IP theft:
The company doesn't seem to make any effort to be original, they simply solicit their participants to "offer ideas as to what to copy" next. Some go to great lengths to cover up their sources, other are proud at their lack or integrity and see it as a source of inspiration.
What a horrible place. Lots of longtime high post count members praising counterfeiting. Glad this place isn't like that. We have our issues at times but nothing like that!
I ran a search on the new Wolf Spider, and these guys came up; if it's not appropriate to post this here, let me know and I'll remove it.
ETA: nevermind - on further research they just link to Aliexpress, tinydeal, and other fake sellers - the site just links to the fakers.
I'm curious, how does Spyderco go about dealing with this kind of thing? (The fake manufacturers, I mean?)
They do go after them.
Aliexpress has really cracked down on them. They will deactivate their account.
That's why you won't see many use the word Spyderco in the title or description. If they do, they won't last long.
DHGATE is not on them as much. I think it has to do with Alibaba being publicly listed is why Ali cracks down more.
I think they need a couple more ad's on the top of their page
I think I see one on ebay that could be this fake but in camo. What kind of blade steel did the fake use? I'm wondering if I were to buy it what my recourse is to prove if it's indeed fake. Thanks.
Saw a couple fake Enduras on eBay.
Got this fellow making lots of knives with Spyderholes.
If there was an award for fugly, he would win it.
Opener hole on a fixed blade: GENIUS
Not familiar with the maker, but possibly they are licensed to use the Spyderhole...?
Sal would know.
Spyderco Farid K2 - knockoff or clone or doctored original?
Looks like a money scam to me ...
Have not made report to Ebay, as I assume Spyderco might choose to investigate seller personally.

Not only is the K2 now being cloned....I just saw a FireFly clone on ebay too! Its easy to spot as a clone because it looks really cheap. Also it uses black g10 instead of carbon fiber for the bolster. Also its not a high mirror polish on the scales like the original one.
I could list more but I don't want to give more hints to the cloners. Besides those two tells are really big and easy tells to spot
K2 clone has been out more than a year.
You're not giving them ideas...
I was talking about the Firefly but yea. All they have to do is buy one, scan it, then make them.
Here's a bunch that are new to me. Maybe old IDK
Endura 4 standard + waved
Theres now a fake Mamba. Pretty much a spot on copy thats well copied. Only difference which makes it super easy to spot is that its G10 handles and not Carbon Fiber. Otherwise the size, shape, blade colors, etc are the same.
I just bought a paramilitary and I think it is fake. How can I tell for sure?
Where did you get it and how much? If it sounds too good to be true...as they say. You could also maybe post pics, or for 100% certainty, send it in to Spyderco.
