That's not the question. I don't own a Police either, but it encompasses the classic Spyderco look and many features found on some of the newer more popular models. The question is subjective and doesn't have one correct answer, but let's not confuse it with the question of "best" or "most popular" Spyderco.
I get the question but I certainly think popularity has to be taken into account. If the police or worker are to be considered the "iconic" Spyderco I would have to ask why more people here on the forum don't own one. Collectively we represent a pretty hardcore group of fans. The classic look is certainly present on a para 2 and is designed by the founder and his son together. The fact that it is considered by many to be the perfect pocket knife and is probably the most popular knife on the planet helps too.
Good discussion though. I could be wrong
