I believe the Police has been in the lineup in some form or other since 1984. It has obviously gone through some evolution to get to the Police 4 LW we have today, but the "Police" model has been around a long time. Maybe the longest? I can't say for sure.

The Delica 4 model specifically has been in production since 2006 but the Delica model in general was introduced in 1990.

Also, the Paramilitary 2 model specifically has been in production since 2010.

The sharpmaker has had a few revisions with new model numbers.

The CO7 Police has had a few changes but still maintains the C07 model number.

The Harpy is C08 but I don’t know if it came before the Police or not?

I think that C07 is the longest continually running model number.

Pretty sure the Police was released a couple years ahead of the Harpy.

According to Spydiewiki, the C08 Harpy was first released in 1987 and the C07 Police was 1984.

The Delica model has been around for a while. I used to have one that did not have a removable clip. The clip was molded into the handle. I wish I knew what happened to that knife.

I'd say the stainless steel Police must be the longest lasting, least changed model in the catalog.
Endura/Delica are true veterans as well but although still easily recognizable, has gone through more changes than the Police.

Didn't even realize it was still in production! The police 4 really should be a different model, looking at the differences

The cricket also feels like it's been around forever

As far as I can tell (according to Spydiewiki), Delica and Endura were released at the same time.

That´s an interesting, but probably in that rather early times of Spyderco also clever approach.

Imagine, they would have kept to this and small and large versions of a platform would have been released at the same time:
Chief and Native 5, PM2 and Para 3, Yojimbo and Yojumbo...courious, how that would have worked out.
Top three going by pocket-time: Endura 4 in VG 10/Micarta-scales; Stretch 1 in VG 10; Endura 4 in HAP 40

Should be the stainless steel Police C07. True classic, especially the Spyderedge version.

Was confirmed by Eric, in a video with Knifecenter, that the C07 Police is their longest running design.
