This looks like a winner to me. I’d be in for VG10

Sal,
If you are still listening for color suggestions for K390, (and I’m hoping that we see other color matched k390 releases with other models) I have a few...

1. Somewhere between a brick red and burnt orange.
2. A darker version of the desert tan
3. Not black. And I mean a very dark grey that is almost black, but not quite.

Thanks for listening. Looking forward to trying out an fern police.

Other than the black vg10 and the burnt orange hap40 (please do that), I'd be most interested in OD Green with black dlc and desert tan / khaki. Burgundy and dlc would also be swell.
I own an assisted knife and am embarrassed to admit I enjoy it.

Currently I'm thinking dark colors. Maybe black for VG-10, BRG for ZDP, very dark blue for K390, etc.

I feel like some sort of blue would be fitting for one of the runs, given the name of the design.

ZDP and BRG is already an established pair.

Black is a classic, and I'd imagine a consistent seller.

Makes sense to me.

A dark blue would be fitting and nice.

+1 on that!

Dark blue FRN is definitely the right choice for this knife!

If the price is right, the K390 version may find its way into my pocket. Dark blue FRN sounds great.

Navy Blue with DLC K390 sounds good to me.

Dark blue k390 would be pretty ideal for my tastes.

I assume the wire clip isn't being discussed, but I would love to see it on more LW models, P4 included. Also makes for a nice differentiator from the G10 model.

I actually do like wire clips but they have one huge drawback for me. With the exception of the Des Horn there has never been a Spydie with a wire clip that offered a tip down option. I am a tip down kind of guy.

Dark blue and k390 sound great!

What about a red, or lighter blue, or anything that you can find if you drop it?
Almost everything is either black, or a very dark shade of something. The red & black Delica looks pretty special :)

And if you already have K390 blades for the G10 version then why not just drop some in the FRN model. No extra tooling and a great steel ready to go! (I really want to try K390 out).

I can't wait to see one of these come out. Wire clip on everything FTW

Cyan, Fuchsia, (and if you can add a third color, yellow) Zome please. Pretty please. Pretty pretty please. Maybe a sprint endura and/or delica. VG10 is ok.

I do like the the choice for the dark blue FRN k390 police 4 though. I'll definitely be picking one of those up.

Repeating my request for at least one production run in partial serrations, please. Black FRN or other subdued color and VG-10 or other stainless prefered.

I love the idea of blue for a FRN color, just not too dark, please!

The Navy on the waved Endura and Delica is too dark.

And, having just got a ZDP Delica, I think the BRG is a tad too dark as well. It does look better now that I put a chrome clip on it tho. Smiley face, winky face.

I'm surprised by the requests for bright colors on such a large knife. Certainly our LEO's would not like a bright color?
