One of the most recognizable and enduring folding knives ever made, the iconic Police Model has been a mainstay of Spyderco’s product line since its introduction in the 1980’s. It has also been the subject of years of relentless Constant Quality Improvement (C.Q.I.) that ultimately led to the current fourth-generation version of the design. The highly refined Police 4 incorporates a number of subtle ergonomic refinements and some not-so-subtle improvements in construction materials. Its broad, full-flat-ground, PlainEdge blade is crafted from Böhler-Uddeholm K390— an advanced high-alloy particle metallurgy tool steel that offers exceptional edge retention and toughness. The handle features skeletonized full stainless steel liners, a solid steel back spacer, and textured G-10 scales that collectively reduce weight while ensuring maximum structural strength and a secure grip in even the most demanding conditions. It is also home to a refined back lock mechanism and a four-position hourglass clip that supports all possible carry preferences. Together with the blade’s fully accessible Trademark Round Hole, these features guarantee easy accessibility and swift, fully ambidextrous operation.
