I'm voting for SpydieChef. The design, awesome steel and how well it carries. Not that it matters but I also bought a Nirvana, Magnitude and an Advocate from this list. Nirvana is a close second IMO.

Just to avoid confusion on my part are you voting for the Ouroboros as your overall winner? :)

Sorry for the confusion from my weak attempt to decide by differing category or criteria.



So, what the heck, I'll throw in a vote for original Stretch HAP40! :D
Going back to Caly.

Spydiechef for me. Awesome design, fantastic blade grind, excellent fit and finish, great steel, the light weight, and the fun to use factor.
This is a clear winner of 2016.

As much as I have craved a pm2 in cruwear and m4 for ages, I just can't get enough of my KW 204p Millie, love the steel the color and all the CQI changes :D

The hap 40 Dragonfly was an awesome knife this year as well and the Nirvana and Magnitude are knives I hope I'll have one day. 2016 was a great Spyderco year and I hope 2017 will follow in the same vein :)

For me, the Military S110V, a great introduction to the model with the CQI changes, ridiculous edge holding of S110V and the time tested design of the Millie :spyder: :cool: .

Sprig if it counts for 2016...

CTS-204P Military if it doesn't.

If the Sprig is considered 2016 I vote for this. (Mine was delivered first week in January 2016.) If not the S110V Millie gets my vote.

Paying homage to the classic Spyderco shape, setting a new standard in manufacturing fit, finish, and tolerances, and delivering everything in an exquisitely usable package: the Nirvana.

Well I would of voted GB2, and it probably would of won if released just a few weeks later.

So that being said it would have to be 1 of the 2 Military's that were released. I own the CTS-204p and simply love it!

But all bias aside I vote for the sprint run Military in 52100. To me it seemed to have the most hype within the Spydie forums, and it also seemed to deliver.

I'm pretty proud of the lowly Hap40 Stretch for doing as well as it did. It got my vote! A sprint run of a years old frn design coming within a vote of a $400 custom level knife like the Nirvana. Not bad little Stretch, not bad. :D

My personal best was the BBS Blue Para 2. The fit, finish, blade steel, action, color, everything; was perfect.
