Popular Mechanics Editor's Choice Awards from the Hardware Show

If there ever was a beauty pageant for the tool lover, it's the National Hardware Show (in Vegas no less). All of the latest and greatest tools are exhibited and the Judge Judys of the tool world (i.e. magazine editors, freelance writers, and obnoxious bloggers like us, etc) are on hand to snoop, sniff, and generally suss out the successes from the failures. Popular Mechanics was on hand for the event and they've released their thoughts on the best tools to emerge from this year's crop.

Looking at their list makes us wish we had made the trip out to the show. They've collected some tools we're familiar with, like the Goldblatt Blade Runner and the amazing Nail Jack (our review here), but they've also found a few things that we've yet to see or even hear about, such as the Little Giant Six-Foot Step Ladder, the Deck Wrecker, and an amazing looking level from C.H. Hanson.

We're hoping to get a closer look at some of these tools in the upcoming days, but in the meantime, do yourself a favor and check out the list at Popular Mechanics.
