The KnifeNews Dealers’ Choice Awards recognize extraordinary achievement in the production knife world. KnifeNews turned to knife dealers to determine the winners. With hundreds of new production knives passing through their hands and many hours spent interacting with end-users, dealers have the most comprehensive and informed perspective. 21 of North America’s top dealers cast their votes in 10 different categories to choose the best of the best in 2016.

We are pleased to announce that the Kershaw Launch 6 is the winner of the KnifeNews Dealers’ Choice Award for Best New Automatic Knife 2016. Votes cast by dealers indicated that other great new blades in this category include the Benchmade 2551 Mini-Reflex II, the Gerber 06 Auto, and the Kershaw Launch 4.
