Re: K390 FRN models - Has Seki improved the edge angles or sharpness?

Thanks to everyone sharing their perspectives and nice photos Cambertree! It's helpful and definitely sounds like Seki is doing a better job on the K390 now compared to the discontinued K390 Police4. I have never seen any other spyderco that came with as obtuse of a factory edge as that K390 G-10 Po...

Re: Help with Police model number . . .

Hey JMM, You'll likely get much more feedback from others if you post clear close up photos of all the words on the blade like I mentioned. The big "tells" of a fake in this case is going to be the blade's markings and the clip and the "bug" on the clip. Not as many people will have ever seen inside...

K390 FRN models - Has Seki improved the edge angles or sharpness?

Simple question: Specifically with the blue handled FRN K390 models has Seki improved how they are sharpening K390 compared to the old G-10 Police 4 in K390? That model was very commonly arriving with very wide angles and not very sharp compared to most new Spydercos. So how are your brand new K390 ...

Re: Help with Police model number . . .

Hey folks, sorry for the late reply, hectic last day and half... l've been comparing the shape, mechanics, lockup, 'feel' of my new specimen particularly the SS Police that I bought from National Knives. They feel identical in every conceivable way. I would swear I've seen this model before, but no...

Re: P4 FRN aftermarket clip help

Here's a MXG 20191018_155740-1440x1920.jpg Thanks, but I'm looking to see what it would look like with the "long" version of the MXG or Lynch clips. Not the short clips. How do you find that short one working on the police? I would guess it's sort of rough on clothes or gets a bit caught up on mate...

Re: Let's take a look inside my Police 4

That DLC looks incredible! The screws were put back on the reverse side as normal. :D Do you mind saying how much the entire cost was for that DLC job? Please let us know how it holds up over time or if you notice anything noteworthy as it gets used related to rust etc. It would be great if spyderco...

P4 FRN aftermarket clip help

Could anyone who has the new police 4 lightweight version + either of the "Long" Lynch or MXG deep carry clips help me out? Specifically I wonder about the flat oval in the center of the FRN handles and if either of these 2 aftermarket clips make contact with that oval area any better than the stand...

Re: Police4 Sharpening and re-profiling advice?

Any more advice on some good options that haven't been mentioned yet for where to send this for a re-profiling and sharpening? I'd say I pretty much want to approach or push the limits of what K390 on this model can handle, so if I sent it to someone like BBB or vivi who already have been using thei...

Re: Police4 Sharpening and re-profiling advice?

Here's a quote from Sal about his Police 4 prototype's custom edge: Thanx for the edge Joris. What angle are you using? . I understand K390 will take and hold a very thin edge. I sharpened the proto to about 20 degrees inclusive with no problems. sal so it sounds like about 10 degrees per side is as...

Police4 Sharpening and re-profiling advice?

Hey everyone, I have a Police4 that had a pretty weird patina pattern until I took a long time scrubbing it away to start over. So what I have is pretty much a new Police4, but with a scoured blade. (It actually looks pretty cool now with a faded spyderco bug logo and wording on the blade. You can s...

Re: 2019 Catalog Live!

I'm curious about the Smock on page 72. I had heard it was going to be changed to have a differently designed clip that could be installed on either side. (instead of only 1 side) But this new catalog still shows it with the old clip design. Is that just an oversight? Maybe there is still enough tim...

Re: Spyderco Hatchet

As pointed out to me via PM, the GP Knives video shows the same issues. I don't know if it's a different one than i received but the marks are almost identical. Shoot, they look identical to me, enough to where i believe the one they show in the video is the one i received. Of course the video does...
