Nothing for me either. I'm waiting on the Chinook 4 and Police 4. Everything released so far is too small for my taste.

K390 urban for me. Great little knife.
Great steel, great size, so light.

Runners up would be s110v ukpk, lc200n mule.

No.
I never considered myself a steelnut. Also currently I have absolutely no need for super wear-resistant steel. I have four S110V Natives (two forum's, one CF and one LW). With my current use I will not have an opportunity to see this super wear resistance. On week days I carry one of my S35Vn, which are absolutely sufficient. For recycle days I have my S110V. No reason to spend $150 for steel.

K390 Urban for me too! It's also the only 2017 release I have at this point. Unless the Para 3 counts as a 2017 release. Either way, I'd still pick the Urban.

Without a doubt, my Maxamet native. This steel is just fun. As for the Native, this is my third in 4 months, so yeah, I like the design. The other one is the Q-Ball, I don't have one yet (hoping for a sprint in a different steel), but I can tell I'm going to like that knife A LOT.
Carrying 3 knives is perfectly normal :D

Funny you mention; I was just looking at one. Looks like a great value at $66 or so.

Para 3 and Advocate. Para 3 is the perfect size and has all of the great features of the PM2. The Advocate orange peel titanium handle won me over when I picked one up at a show. The CPM-M4 steel is also a winner.

One of those things where I knew I was excited about it, but I'd been using the regular ones for so long I didn't realize how much I was going to love it until I got it. Just an amazing gift to us Soutpaws.

No doubt, Nate nailed it! Amen, shaztec.

The PM2LH speaks volumes about Spyderco. So appreciative.

I've really been enjoying the KC cruwear Manix. It's just a solid feeling knife with top notch fit and finish. The carbon fiber looks really cool too. A unique knife for sure.

My Maxamet Native. It's an amazing steel on a very smooth, strong ,well engineered and constructed knife. I sure didn't see maxamet folding knives being available but here they are.

Maxamet Manix 2.

Honorable mention to the Urban k390.

I also like the s110v UKPK quite a lot.

Now I want to see if the new Chaparral dethrones the Maxamet Manix.

Haven't gotten any new releases this year as of yet. The S110V UKPK is calling my name more than any others that are currently available. Other than that I really want that new Tasman Salt whenever it comes out.

The amazing Advocate!!
Great steel, great texture on handles, fantastic blade profile, soooooo thin, extremely comfy in hand, freaky good flipper and WOW does it slice!!

Haven't bought a new Spydie yet this year. Funds are tight and I am holding out for the Police4 and Caly3 HAP40. I may also pick up a M4 Military at some point.

Police 4, because it hasn't been released yet, and I want it, bad.

Although I have acquired several knives this year, none of them are 2017 release. Three 2017 knives I almost got (was ready to hit 'submit', but changed my mind in the last second),
- KW Military - already have a Military and holding out for Police 4
- New Manix 2 backlock - waiting for a different flavor, either all black or different steel
- Native 5 Maxamet - already have N5, so waiting/hoping for PM2 in Maxamet

I haven't picked up any of the new releases just yet, unless you count the Sage 5 which was "new" in the 2017 catalog but came out at the end of '16. I'm looking forward to the Caly3 HAP40 sprint, though.
