You never really know what will come out of Blade Show. Sometimes there are lots of announcements and surprises, sometimes less. But one thing that always comes out of the big Atlanta event are the Blade Show Awards. These awards are given out to specific knives and makers in certain categories: 11 categories for production knives, and 19 categories for custom ones.
I am most excited for Andy Armstrong, Swaggs, and the rest of the Rosecraft Blades crew. They have worked really hard over the last year and a half and it paid off with the Import Knife of the Year.
