Difficult decision, even with my selective purchasing.

1. UK Penknife CPM S110V - ergonomics, simplicity, super steel, improvements over previous design, and completely surprising how much I like it

2. Police 4 K390 - probably would have been my top choice if it was FRN (I'll save that for next year ;))

3. Military and Para Military Left Hand

For me it's the fluted carbon fiber Native, with the pakkawood delica as the runner-up.

1 - Shaman (which I consider a new design, although it is based on the Native 5)
2 - Manix 2 Backlock (second to the Shaman only because it's a variant of an existing design)
3 - Darn Dao (exceptional, but won't be as easily used or widely sold as the two others).

Happy New Year to everyone.

Tough call, but I think I’ll go with the Shaman. I’ve been waiting on this model for several years, so it’s exciting to see it finally come to fruition.

Fluted CF Native5 (the only one I have listed here that I haven't acquired yet)
Caly3 HAP40
Police4 K390
M4 Military
Pakkawood Delica

But this is the knife that has wowed me the most this year:
Military CF/TI S90V

For me, it’s the CF cruwear Manix. It was my first blade in cruwear, which I really like and the execution is just flawless. One of my overall favorites.

The cruwear para3 was an unexpected, pleasant surprise. I also really enjoy the pakkawood Delica/Endura and the M4 Military and Sliverax have also had a lot of pocket time this year.

A solid choice. And such an attractive knife. The fixed blades just don’t get the love like the folders do.
