Would you possibly help us out by re-listing the categories? Maybe the candidates you've listed as well, if all that isn't too much trouble. Thanks!
I was hoping for a couple negative categories to be a bit grinchy about some shitty gear and trends from 2015 - will that come in another form?
What Peter said. E.g.:* Plateau Award for Nonimprovement. This is not for a company that sucks but for one that is stuck. My finalists would be Chris Reeve, Benchmade, and Foursevens. The last is somewhat unfair b/c part of that was external circumstances -- but still, compare the lack of vigor of FS's redesign response to the Surefire patent litigation onslaught with, say, that of Fenix.* Bad Move of the Year. The Cold Steel v CRKT "virtual fixed blade!" lawsuit would probably be the runaway winner, even though I personally found it less ridiculous than most.* Most Played Out Trope. "Overbuilt"? Framelock Ti flippers? Insanely early lockup? Lumen wars? Side button UIs? Selector ring UIs?<--ohyeahIsaidthat)* Cheesiest Hipsterism.Spread the holiday cheer!
Yeah! separate negative poll please! Something of a razzie awards for gear
Plus Most Overhyped, Worst close, Most money for least product, ugliest knife
Any chance you'll be giving us the heads-up on Blade HQ Black Friday sales again this year?
Kinda slim pickins on choices, eh?
Multitool category, too!
