4th Annual Readers’ Choice Awards Poll: Vote for Your Favorite Knives of 2021

Presented by: Work Sharp Knife & Tool Sharpeners

Readers, the 2021 KnifeNews Readers’ Choice Awards polls are open! Please vote in each of the ten categories before 9am EST on Monday, January 3rd to participate in this year’s awards. Then we’ll tally the votes and announce the winners in each category, one category a day, starting that afternoon.

No sign-in is necessary, but each reader is limited to one vote per category. If you have any issues please reach out with an email to the editor at benschwartz [at] knifenews.com and we’ll see what we can do to help. And remember, even though the polls only run through Monday, you have until 12pm EST on Thursday, January 20th to tell us about your personal picks for the best of the year and why. We’ll be including some of your write-ups in a Best of the Rest article, and everyone who emails us will be entered into a drawing to win a Spyderco SpydieChef, courtesy of KnivesShipFree! Send those emails with the subject line “RCA 2021” to info [at] KnifeNews.com

Thanks for taking the time to participate in the Readers’ Choice Awards again this year. We’re pumped to see what your picks for the best knives of 2021 will be!
