Glad to see in-depth review of the new Police 4 LW.
I am yet to found out if the loose pivot is a problem to be lookout for as I just received mine like last night. But for handling it a while I have no worries.
*Here's a little story of me getting one and a little off topic kinda hahah.
I've always wanted the G10 in K390 model but keeping out of luck and kept missing my chances on getting one. First try it was sold out where I end up getting my first Spydie a Manix 2 XL, same goes for second and third try I end up getting a latest Millie in Camo G10.
Three days ago a reputable local dealer puts up the Police 4 LW for sale, the pricing is quite on the marked up range but I was like eh whatever, I've always wanted one so I placed an order for one. When the piece arrived I was surprised turns out I got a numbered version, first Police variant and first numbered Spydie lol.
It is super slim among all my other folders & the length is just a win as I prefer the bigger options, surprised too for how light it is even lighter than the Millie in Camo G10. The FRN scales with Bi-Directional texturing, just nice grippy it stays in hand even the handles covered in oil as I lubricate mine, 4 position pocket clip offers flexible carry options and nice inside the jeans pocket for me.
Overall it's another 10/10 folder with signature hole opener (or a cute eye) to me. The K390 would only mean excellent ergonomics and weight with a "super steel"
Guess it gets "dangerous" when one finds their preference of choice combined with excellent craftsmanship quality, I already eyeing the Ronin or Yojimbo 2, plus many other models that attracts my attention. This "addiction" wouldn't stop anytime soon, I blamed Spyderco for making functional pieces with touch of aesthetics that appeals to me lol.
**A question tho, does Spyderco stopped / changed their boxes? I mean the "transparent" Spyder logo where one can see the line beneath it as a form to verify the product originality. Mine comes with all that looks legit except for the box, the Spyder logo is not transparent at all. Maybe I missed something.
