2013 Knife of the Year?

Postby twinboysdad » Fri Nov 01, 2013 7:56 pm

:spyder: of course. Superblue E4 or D4? Cru Mill? Lava sprint? Just curious what has been the afi fave thus far? I know the Stretch SB still is in the on deck circle for 2013.

I'd certainly toss the S110V Native 5 in the ring for contention.

Excluding sprints, because IMO they stand out on their own too much, I would have to say the Domino. If not then I'd say the Forum Native but then that's sort of a sprint run also.

+1. It would be hard to beat the Domino as far as new 2013 production knives go, and given all the hype associated with the forum knife in putting S110v steel into the Native5 format, I'd say they are both frontrunners.

I'd agree on the Domino, but the Hungarian is almost here...just saying.

in my book there is no match to this knife for several reasons: forum knife, exquisite and unique steel, unique G10 pattern and rare color.

Given the buzz, probably the Southard.

As much as I agree with Roman on the exquisite quality and workmanship of the S110V Native, I am voting with Evil's comment in mind about choosing new models over sprints/exclusives of existing models. Plus with the forum Native, I would have to add the forest green CTS-204P PM2 as a contender to the runner-up title this year; maybe we can award both honorable mentions!.

With that said, my vote goes for the Domino! Especially after some useful mods - a low rider Ti clip and a coarse G10 scale from Allen Putnam (which of course forced me to make the Southard's scale match in color! ;) ). What a wicked flipper duo from Spyderco this last 2 years!

From what I hear through the grapevine, maybe later this month!
