Choosing a winner of the category, we used a number of criteria applied to the nominees and evaluated producers meticulously and scrupulously,” told committee’s representatives.
The winner was chosen by certain parameters every modern workshop has to meet. In particular, the basiс points are the following:
- aesthetic appearance;
- quality of goods;
- quality of used materials;
- authenticity of armor;
- correlation of price and quality;
- market experience;
- fighters’ responses.
The «Age of Craft» company, according to the committee, corresponds to the highest demands. Although, as experts said, the competition is increasing from year to year.
