Hope it’s used in more models. Don’t have a chinook yet, but it’s on the list.

Makes me slightly irritated. At least we got the FRN Police coming.

Bumping this up in hopes of Sal commenting on the future of the PowerLock.

How about a specific question: do you think a power lock sage is likely?

I still don't understand why the Police 4 didn't get this lock.

Probably because “perfection is not when there’s nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.”

Spyderco definitely has a minimalist philosophy: nothing more than is necessary. I’m not saying a power lock police wouldn’t be awesome and a novelty, but does it make the police better? Not sure. And if it doesn’t make it better then don’t add parts.

Indeed, it would seem a like a good candidate for the PowerLock.

I'm very yin-yang about this and appeal to all extremes and middle ground about this debate. But for ease of function and because of alleged existing lock play I would love to see the Powerlock in use.
