    Rare Police knives ?

    I have 3 Police knives that I would like some more info about.

    It's a non-chamfered (so 1st gen) with Police model stamped on the blade, the uncoated aluminum version and the FFG in G10.
    Are these still readily available, very rare or somewhere in between ? All info is appreciated.

    I'd rate them all as fairly rare. I haven't been following the auctions for a while, but none of those came up very often when I was.

    I don't believe in safe queens, only in pre-need replacements.

    I'd agree with Yablanowitz. None of the three are versions that you see very often. Of them, relatively speaking, I'd say the FFG G-10 version would probably be the most common and the first generation with POLICE MODEL markings the least common.
