    Just removed a standard G10 Manix 2 from my pocket and replaced it w/the Smock that I just received in the mail. :)

    This is great news! I love my Police 4.

    I love my recently acquired Police 4. But please educate me what's even better about FRN version of it? It will be lighter (I imagine) but for such a large knife, the current g10 version is not heavy at all. It will probably have better balance as the g10 version favors the handle end. I assume it will be cheaper?

    What else am I missing?

    @sharp_edge For clarification, I didn't say it will be better. I said this is great news.

    Some potential advantages of a FRN Police 4 are price, weight, and variety.

    Plus I actually like Spyderco's FRN. It provides excellent traction, and I think it looks nice depending on the color.

    Sorry - I may not have said it well but I was honestly curious of the FRN version of Police 4. I'm sure it will be a great knife and I am debating whether to get it or just another g10 Police 4.

    Just put a Tropen back in my pocket because of all of the nonsense people (who have never even held the knife) keep saying about it here.

    It's a great knife -- well suited for the purpose for which it was designed, which is SD. It's no more "dangerous" to carry and handle any any of the other 80+ Spydercos that I own and I like it far more than the "just released" Smock that it replaced in my pocket.

    Carrying my new Mantra 1 and VERY happy with this knife! At first I thought it needed a stronger detent (as others have suggested), but after some practice I'm pleased with the flipper action and easily deploy it 100% of the time. What a great knife.

    My Delica HAP40 arrived today so I'll carry that tomorrow. I really like the wharncliffe blade! The burnt orange is a little too drab for me but I didn't buy this for the color. Very cool! Poor lighting so forgive the picture.

    Very used Sage 1. Blade shows a lot more wear/scratching in person. Close to a perfect EDC for me. The edge is a mess with about 3 different bevels (bought used). Will re-profile before I post it again. [​IMG]

    Lil Nilakka. I love the obscure and slightly odd Spydies.
