    OK, well here's the story, they aren't Spyderco, they are fakes from China... But really good fakes. On the website it doesn't show the Spyderco brand, but this is what I got.

    They're just under $7 each shipped.. But, they are great for gifts, and even come in a Spyderco box. Just thought I show them off....

    Oh, by the way I am not a knife collector or expert.. Obviously!

    I've never understood the "cheap knockoff" thing. The idea of a spyderco is the quality that the name brings with it. I've got no problem with CCC (cheap Chinese crap), but just let it be the cheapo beater knife that it is.

    They need to be sued!
    Hey if want to make your own product with your name that's cool but a direct rip off is just that, a rip off!

    Sorry, I threw them away a while ago. But, It was black with Spyderco on it with the spyder.

    isn't it illegal to knowingly buy trademark-infringing products?

    Oh, jeez....

    Luckily, I didn't know until I got them.... But, if the feds want to come for me, I'll be here waiting... Besides, they possibly could be real Spyderco knives, since everything is made in China anyway. Who knows.

    It's not like I stole $100 million in taxpayers funds and gave it away during a massive recession to a third world country, while ignoring our own people....

    They are not.

    Spyderco's holes are round.

    They don't look like any Spyderco I know of. The handle might come close to the old Salsa, but not that close.

    +1 round hole.

    They might be the Spyderco Byrd series.

    They are virtual funds, hard to give away something we never had. :supergrin:

    They aren't. No byrd looks like that. Nor would a byrd knife have the Spyderco logo on it.

    Those are byrd knifes, not spyderco knives. They came up with the byrd brand to keep it separate from the Spyderco brand because they wanted to avoid market confusion (Spyderco is very particular about brand recognition). They don't even have the same warranty as Spyderco knives. Notice the link you posted to the Meadowlark is not labeled as a Spyderco.


    So Yes, all currently produced Spyderco's do have round holes. In the past there were some fixed blades that did not, but Spyderco started using it on them to protect their trade mark. Not sure about the modern kitchen series.

    ETA:
    There have been some exceptions. The Jess Horn was made without the hole due to the designers specifications.

    Is there an actual Spiderco knife that looks like that? I like the design. I don't like crappy knives though.

    Not really. It depends on the size, but the only thing I can think of that may come close might be the Meerkat, but that doesn't fit. Maybe the Navigator, but again it's different. Like I said, it doesn't look like any Spyderco that I'm familiar with.

    Exactly what I was going to say.

    Nicely stated.
