I'm with you on wanting the Police 4! I've had it in my cart at multiple online retailers many times over the last few months (especially after I watched Mike Christys video).
Yes indeed -- so I just finished and hit the "submit order" button, so one should be on its way from Utah tomorrow.
I was hoping more people would dogpile on this thread and tell me to just "buy the doggone thing". But I appreciate you all holding back and letting me make this decision without all of that pressure.
And I do have the greatest respect for the Para 3, even though it doesn't hit my sweet spot. Funny how the Native 5 does, in the same size range. Anyway as someone said, not being nuts about the Para 3 is saving me a lot of money, so I can do things like buy a Police 4.
You know the current Police model sort of strikes me like a sprint run even though it is a regular production model, given the K390 steel. I wouldn't be at all surprised if it isn't available in that configuration long term, which is one of my reasons for grabbing one. I'll be interested to see how solid the lockup is given that some people have griped about it. My standards for backlock knives are the now discontinued Manix and the Native 5, which I understand have reengineered mechanisms. Those are very solid knives.
