Do the updated victorinox 111mm models count? If so, the 1H plain edge locksmith might be a contender  :think: :drool:

If it isn't released in 2017 it doesn't count for 2017.

Companies often announce things but then due to distribution or manufacturing issues they never materialize.

Can't have a MOTY that doesn't exist.  :D

Can’t think of anything else to add to the list...

Sure wished there would be more innovative offerings like the Baton and Sync series or even the center drive...

The Baton and Sync series are on the list?  The Center Drive was on last year's list.

Victorinox has updated their @work series with an USB 3 flashdrive and an USB-C connector. You can plug it in both, in your computer and in your mobile phone (provided it is quite new and not from Apple  :D)

Personally, I would not put the LM Skeletool KB/KBX and Juice B2 on the list. Those are pure knives, if we have those, we can add the Fällkniven MB or the Benchmade Bugout. In fact there are probably a plethora of rescue knives that offer a variety of functions (belt cutter / glass breaker). Being made by LM should not be a qualification for that list or else, where are the Gerber/SOG/etc. knives.
