Sal, any plans for a fully serrated Police LW?

I've seen a lot of interest on the forum for the lightweight Police to be offered in spyderedge. I know I'd buy another if this were the case.

That’s what I’m talking about! I haven’t bought the plain edge version because I’m holding out for an SE blade!

But I may have to buy both

Police LW is somehow TOO large for me, still I want one more and more... and IF there was a SE model, I´d prefer that one over the PE, given that the serrations are similar to those on the Endela (which is likely, I guess, since the blades have the same stock and about the same height).

So, at least interested? Yes, indeed!!
Top three going by pocket-time (update July 21):
- EDC: Stretch 1 in VG10, Tenacious LW in S35VN, Endela SE in VG10.
- Mountains/outdoors: Pac.Salt 1 SE in H1, Endura in VG10 (Micarta scales), Salt 2 SE in LC200N

I thought the same thing, but I convinced myself it would be a useful addition to my collection (a worker blade that I can use around my apartment). The more I use and handle it, the more I really enjoy this knife. At first, it felt entirely too large, but now it feels very good. I always thought I was a smaller knife guy (love the Sage 2!), but a well done large knife is a pleasure to use.

For me the Police would be just a bit large in CARRY, not in use. I really like larger knives, the best combination of rather "short" carry length but long blade still is the Endura for me. Shorter-than-the-Endura-blades are generally "shorter than I prefer ideally" ;)

Vivi, sorry, I really don´t want to derail your thread, but I just HAVE to ask once more:

Sal, any plans for a serrated ENDURA in ffg other than the Wharnie?
The Endela is such an amazing performer in SE, a similar Endura would be just mind blowing...

Thank you for such a quick reply Sal. I'll do my part moving the PE version, just had to stock up on Pacific Salts first :D

I would be interested in a serrated Police lightweight. Especially if it is ground thinner at the edge than the PE Police.

Can you imagine the cutting power of a 4.5" thinly ground fully serrated blade?! Make it an LC200N Salt while you're at it. ;)

I will buy one if it is offered in SE but I will likely pass otherwise.

I already have a P4 G-10 but I'd be extremely interested in a P4 LW SE. It'd be a great backup folder as I normally carry and use something a little smaller.

Also I'd be interested in a P4LW in Super Blue, cladded or otherwise.

I would love a serrated version. But right now, I'm happy with the one I have. Right now, it's the Spyderco I'm EDCing. When I put it side-by-side with my Military, I was a bit surprised at how much bigger the P4 LWT is length-wise (but not in thickness). It's a large folder, but it doesn't FEEL as large as it is (if that makes any sense).

A serrated P4 LWT would be an absolute beast.

I'd buy the p4 lw in SE if it was ffg, which I imagine it would be. Would buy that before I bought the plain edge. I'm going ti be buying the plain edge too though lol. Probs nit until funds free up in December.
I own an assisted knife and am embarrassed to admit I enjoy it.

Voted no.

Although I do have a VG10 Assist, my interest in serrations is presently limited to H1.

H1’s serrations, owing to work-hardening, are said to be the hardest (HRC 68?) of any edge offered by Spyderco in all other steels.

I’m content with my K390 Police4(s).
