Forgot to add, I too love the swedge and wish the Caly 3 and 3.5 were ground with this extra feature. My Caly Jr's don't see as much pocket time as they should because of their G-10 cousins. Wouldn't it be nice to see a Caly Jr return in stainless much like the Kopa returned?
Definitely; the Jr is an underappreciated model.
And don't get me started on Kopa's and Kiwi's!
Those babies have slimmed down my spending money quite a bit over the years! :p

Nice! Good to see some love for the Calypso and Junior :D

I'm still looking for the burgundy FRN one and the Micarta one of course. Awesome model.

Alpha and Omega

These represent the beginning and the end of the police model. 30, 25, 20 and 15 year old versions. The end of a perfect design by CQI where it's not needed. Full flat grind a classic. Multi position clip. The horror, the horror......

The 4 is not a Police. It's something else. Slight tweaks to the Endura resulted in a different model. The Endela.
Radical changes to the Police and its called the 4. Even the name was removed from the blade! WoW

I am so torn about the Spyker.. I honestly think it's awful, but then again it's a interesting collector's item. :)
Have already said no thanks to two sellers, time will tell if third time's a charm

My well used Vesuvius that I carried and used for work years ago. The bug fell out and as you can see I was unsuccessful and gluing it back in. This was also my first compression lock and it's been one of my favorite locks since.

Image
If you are interested I have an idea to replace the bug.

Thanks but I'm fine with the way it is.

That’s it! That’s the knife that started it all for me. Prior to my worker, I had SAKs, bucks, a double edged sog, and the old timer (first knife).
