    I think most the fakes all have the same serial number. They may have corrected that though, not sure.

    Serial number 51455. Lack of sharpening choil. The ant hole is oddly shaped. I think the font is off in most cases too. Looks shrunk to me.

    Hey Tim, don’t worry about if the Izula I sent you is fake or not. Go ahead a box it back up and send it back. The un used Spyderco you sent me is very used. I’ll send it back tomorrow. Shoot me a PM

    Your description as unused except for some letters and boxes. Not accurate at all. Let’s keep it civil and simple and just swap back.

    Everything has been worked out between myself and Tim. And he's gone above and beyond on his end.
