As its name implies, the Police 3 is the third-generation expression of Spyderco’s classic Police Model. This full-service cutting tool combines all the defining features of the original design with the enhanced grip security of textured black G-10 handle scales. The blade of the Police 3 is crafted from VG-10 stainless steel and has a full-flat grind and a PlainEdge cutting edge for exceptional edge geometry and low-friction cutting performance. It also proudly boasts Spyderco’s Trademark Round Hole for quick, positive one-handed opening. Full-length stainless steel liners in the handle ensure superior strength and provide a secure foundation for the knife’s high-strength back lock mechanism. They also offer a solid platform for a four-position pocket clip that supports tip-up or tip-down carry on either side of the body. This feature, along with the back lock mechanism, and the blade’s Trademark Round Hole™ make carry and all aspects of the Police 3’s operation completely ambidextrous.
