    They do call it an Interceptor, but we just call it an Explorer.

    Yes. It has been addressed. This is just a temporary vehicle. I drive the Taurus version normally. It's much faster. Mine is in the shop for repairs.

    Taurus, its called Mondeo here, our police use it exclusively as a K9 car in the wagon version... Normal patrolcars are VW Passat and Touran 2.0 TDI...

    The Illinois State Police Drive the Chevrolet Caprice which is only available as a fleet vehicle and not to the General Public. It's got a giant engine. We still have a couple of the old Ford Crown Victoria Police interceptors. If you remember the original movie Mad Max, they have a line in the movie about the last of the V8 interceptors. The ones we have are truly the last of the V8 interceptors. The Interceptor is the transmission.

    Fällkniven GPgm or Benchmade Proper? The GPgm has a liner lock and the Proper is a slip joint. I want a traditional folder with green Micarta. Is there another that is nice? Don't really care for the Case green Micarta folders.

    Well, the Benchmade is definitely cheaper.

    GEC periodically has configurations that might appeal to you.

    I replied, but now I don't see it on here. So, if this is redundant, I apologize. I like their knives, but have been hesitant to purchase 1095 tool steel on a pocket knife. Performance-wise, I have no problem with it and have it on several fixed blades, but I don't like that it's not a stainless for pocket carry.
