    Best overall knife was the 0888? Yuck

    The 0600 is awesome looking, but i'm not a fan of the 0888 look.

    Did CRK win anything?
    What about the custom awards?

    Yea, they (KAI) are quickly becoming my favorite production knife company.

    Really disappointed that Benchmade (my old favorite production company) didn't debut a single knife for the blade show this year.

    Wow, it's surprising that spyderco put out another auto. They had people jump through hoops to be able to buy them in the past.

    Far from saying they suck. They make an awesome knife and some of my favorite production knives of all time. Still very disapointed in their showing

    It's a Coast Guard model from what I've seen.

    Benchmade launched all their new knives at the 2012 SHOT show. Amongst those was the limited edition Gold Class 940, 810 Contego, Bone Collector 15050, 916 Triage and the 275/375 Adamas.
    Long live the weasels!

    the 940 is nothing special, just a different version. The 810 looks ok. I like the blade steel, but wish they had a satin finish one. The BC 15050 and the triage don't appeal to me at all. The Adamas does though.

    Dude, benchmades don't suck. I have a lot of benchmades as well as spydercos, kershaws, zt's, busse, etc. Many fans on here for benchmades, so please refrain from using generalities. If you want to say you dont like a certain knife benchmade produces, that's legit but It's just not cool to say a knife company sucks and not back it up with squat. It really makes you look ignorant bro.

    A Google search for the Spyderco Autonomy didn't turn up much...I'm intrigued, has anyone seen it?
    Long live the weasels!

    Good job ZT/Kershaw/Shun. I might have to pick up a few of these. Maybe even the Spyderco if I have any money leftover
