I have all the Forum knives going back to (at least) 2010. The only one I use is the 2013 Irish Congress. To me this is the ideal Traditional Forum Knife, and representational of what I always hope we can accomplish with the annual; resurrection of an old, unusual, pattern. Sadly, looking back, this is not very often carried out; the ring pull and the easy open being the other major variations on that theme I can recall. I like to think that this forum, having prevailed on manufacturers to provide such examples, encouraged them to make available even larger runs in those patterns. There are so many patterns that are no longer available that it seems like a wasted opportunity when we "settle" for a current pattern with minimal cosmetic changes.
