    Well, I'll get the ball rolling. I didn't get to make as many knives this year due to work and redoing my shop (which still isn't done). But, out of the few, this was the best one.

    A8 SS blade
    300 series SS bolsters
    Tapered tang
    Stabilized quilted Pomelle Sapele scales
    Orange G10 liners
    Mosaic pins
    Custom etch for customer on backside
    My own leather work
    John Doyle inspired jimping (one of the guys who's work I really admire)
    Randy Haas inspired design (another guy who's work I really admire)

    And here's a composite for more details:

    I'll join in.
    I think this was likely my nicest of the year.
    This is one of my 3-finger hunters.
    Bohler N690 Steel-In-house heat treat and cryo
    Desert Ironwood Burl handle with Black G10 liners
    The sheath is also done in-house with Wickett and Craig Leather.

    Here's my favorite hunter I made this year. I'll enter it into this category.

    Hand forged 1075 steel, amboyna burl handle, black fittings and bronze accent spacer.

    This is a very tough group to join. Here is my nomination.

    I did not complete more than a dozen knives this year. But, I did complete a very special knife for myself. Number 100.

    Made from 1080 with a hamon, buffalo horn and dyed whitetail deer handle, stainless guard, accents, and pin. With a mosaic pin in the butt cap.
