Have you gotten your dream blade of 2018?

I finally got a military in S30v. Have you gotten your most wanted blade of 2018?

I think the only knife I've bought this year was the Spyderhawk..not exactly my dream knife but very cool and definitely a keeper. The highest on my wish list is that Cruwear Shaman if it happens or if Blade HQ finally do a Sliverax in jade/M4. My Autonomy has kinda ruined my interest in other knives.

The Brouwer is the knife I was most excited about this year. I'll be getting it next month unless some terrible money stuff happens before then. I, too, have been a bit ruined on knives this year with the hap40 delica, the delica wharncliffe serrated, and native lw in s90v. Wanted some Damascus this year but that didn't really happen for me.
I own an assisted knife and am embarrassed to admit I enjoy it.

Yep. Police 4.

I had planned on waiting for a stainless FRN Police 4, but between K390 being surprisingly corrosion resistant, and the weather cooling off so sweat isn't as much of a concern, it's been working perfect.

This knife has my new favorite blade shape, hands down. The perfect combo of the Police 3 & Military blade profiles.

Not exactly sure what my "dream knife" is but I've been fortunate enough to be able to buy a lot of nice knives this year. More than I anticipated and probably more than I should. There's a few more on my list too. Haha! Kapara & Paysan are likely. Mantra 3 & McBee are possibles. C'mon Megamillions! :)

I have bought a lot of dreamy knives this year and for that I am grateful. That said, I am still waiting for the knife I long for the most, a Maxamet Military. :)

Also eagerly awaiting the Rex45 Military and Province.

Yes. A used one as it's discontinued.

Not as new or as Sharp as I'd like but serrations easily sharpened.

Nicest knives I got this year; Military CPM-S90V Carbon Fiber/Titanium Handle with R.I.L Lock, Military CTS204P Green G10 , Manix 2 52100 Gray G10, and 2018 Forum knife. Dream knife? Hmm - not sure.

Didn't have it on my "dream knife" wishlist before, but now that I've bought it and had a chance to feel its awesomeness firsthand, it is my ultimate awesome EDC dream knife and there is not a single knife in any of Spyderco's catalogues I want more. The discontinued ATS-55 Rescue.

Once I received and carried my 52100 Para 3, I haven’t looked into other models much. I have a cruwear para 3 but something about this 52100 model really warmed me up and got me used to the para 3 and I never thought I would like it this much. I like the endura in vtoku2 but there is just something about this para 3 that just clicks with me.

My "dream blade" changes pretty rapidly but it's safe to say that my 2018 dream blade is the Amalgam. Still waiting patiently.

Hard to say. I've only bought a few this year. A S110v Mille, para 2 and 3 and a super blue caly jr. I was content for the last several years rotating the spydercos I had acquired over the last ten or so previous years?

So is one of those my dream knife? Who knows. Seems like the "dream knife" is always the next purchase. At least that's how I jusify it.

Too soon to say but pretty sure my dream knife of 2018 (if it comes out in time) will be the Kapara. Sliverax has been the surprise daydream runner-up.
