I saw this,  https://www.bladeforums.com/threads/benchmade-9051sbk-afo-110-infidel-3300bk-280-and-stryker-110-bnib.1572285/ on another forum. Are these "Too Good To Be True" prices? The guy says he buys closeouts. I really don't want to get burned.

Zero feedback seller ... hmmm ... be careful as benchmades have been cloned.  Not saying these are clones, but without seeing them in person or better pics, wouldn't be worth the risk for me.

Thanks. It's a tough call as I'm not rich. I have to go for value, but can't afford to lose it. He assured me by saying, "You have full protection with Paypal." But I also read a "switchblade" knife is prohibited from coverage on Paypal.

Ill say this about the "full protection of Paypal". I once bought a $400 Meucci pool cue off eBay and received a $30 Kmart pool cue instead. When I contacted the seller they replied " I sent you a pool cue" to which I replied "yes but not the $400 one you advertised and I bought". 
I contacted PP and was told since the seller technically fulfilled the agreement to send "A pool cue" they would do nothing about the fraud. It seems there is (or at least was) a loop hole that if the seller actually sends you the "type item" that was promised they won't do anything ... and PP did nothing about the fraud that was perpetrated on me.
All to say it was an expensive lesson.
I won't buy anything of "real" value off eBay now.

Be Careful Bro

Good Luck.

That's too bad. I've gotten some "junk" from ebay before, and Paypal stood behind me. But it was nowhere near $400.00 worth.

Well, my 3300bk Infidel showed up today. According to my scale it weighs 4.94 oz and is razor sharp. Pocket clip has correct font, finish seems right, fit and finish seem 100% also. I think I did OK. Sorry for the crappy cell phone pics. My camera is at the office.
