Bought a lot in 2019... Maybe too much.
My top knife is the Spyderco Subvert collaboration with Black Snow Customs.
The fit and finish is next level and action is as good as early generation grimsmo norseman... But at a sliver of the cost.
Absolutely rock solid lockup. Zero blade play and it guillotines closed.
The blade shape is surprisingly useful, robust, and slicy considering the thickness.
The only knock I have on the subvert is the detent ramp... But I'm really digging into the weeds for flaws at that point.
Otherwise it's a perfect knife and a great showcase of what Spyderco is capable of.
The Subvert is just a really fun knife to own and use. Very pleased with it.
The drunken might have taken top spot except for the clip. I would have preferred a functional steel clip.
