Not too many surprises this year, EXCEPT the Police 4???
I was quite surprised to see the Police 4 on the discontinued list as well. Do you all think it’s because they’re already coming out with a Police 5?
Sal had hinted that it would be discontinued soon, especially with the advent of the new Police LW.
I imagine that the P4 was a bit of a slow seller: maybe not on this forum, but among Spyderco's main customer base. It's really an aficionado model, a true Sal Glesser creation - long thin blade, K390 steel, slender but solid design.
Unfortunately it wasn't helped by the fact that for some reason, G-10 from Seki City is very expensive. I think it is worth the money though. It is such a fine knife: you really need to hold one in hand to fully appreciate it.
