Spyderco Police 4 Lightweight Plain K390 Dark Cyan Blue FRN Back Lock C07FP4K390
The Spyderco Police Model is an iconic and timeless member of the Spyderco family. This venerable design continues moving forward through Spyderco's Constant Quality Improvement or CQI process combining the refined features of the fourth-generation Police 4 with the advantages of lightweight fiberglass-reinforced nylon (FRN) handles. The ultimate in lightweight cutting performance, this version of the Police 4 lightweight comes with dark cyan blue FRN handles and a plain edge Bohler K390 MICROCLEAN tool steel blade.
Brand new, direct from Spyderco Knives, Japan.
Blade: Fully flat ground K390 tool steel is satin finished with a razor sharp plain cutting edge delivering excellent performance. This steel lends itself to thin, high performance edges and with a relatively thin 3 mm thickness and nearly four inches of cutting edge make this blade a slicing machine. K390 offers top end edge retention with moderate toughness and some corrosion resistance for a non-stainless tool steel. A 14 mm Spyderco RoundHole allows for ambidextrous opening and index and thumb jimping on the blade provide a very secure grip.
Handle: The scales are made from Bi-Directional textured Fiberglass Reinforced Nylon or FRN a durable injection molded polymer, which is tough, lightweight and nearly impervious to decomposition and moisture. The scales are supported by skeletonized stainless steel liners which help to reduce weight while maintaining a high level of strength. A time tested mid-back lock offers simple operation with strong, secure lockup and paired with the RoundHole make the knife fully ambidextrous.
Carries via a 4-position stainless steel hourglass pocket clip.
Bohler K390: Bohler K390 is a cold work tool steel made with 3rd Gen particle metallurgy processing developed to provide the extreme wear resistance and high compressive strength needed in industrial cutting, blanking, and punching operations. K390 offers very high level edge retention with good toughness and high purity compared to conventional steels. As a tool steel, K390 is not stainless and requires consideration to prevent corrosion.
