Looks like I am ready for this years Blade Show family reunion. I started making knives for the show in November and was able to finish 16 knives in time for the show. Sorry, but did not have time for photos, one of the projects for after the show is to build a photo booth that is ready, easy to use and quick.

I do not figure to sell all of the knives I am taking, one of my personal goals is to take as many knives as possible to a show simply because a show is just that - a show. I could easily sell the knives I am taking to those waiting on our list, but I strongly feel that we have an obligation to those who visit shows to have enough of a display in order that the last man through the door will have knives to visit.

This year I am very proud of each of the knives that will be on my table, each with her own personality and I feel they are done well.

Hope to see as many of you as possible at the show.

Very slightly sad that we don't get to see pictures of your craft. It is always a pleasure to see pictures of your knives!

What is more important, to sense your enthusiasms for the show, as you share that joy the rest of the year!

Best of luck Ed!

Ed have a wonderful time.
I just can't imagine a bad Blade Show. I remember thinking on my flight home from my first Blade Show in 2001, that if the plane crashed I would die a happy man. People still comment about the idiot grin I walk around knife shows with.

The show was great, for some reason my body decided to stiffen up for me and I did not get a lot of traveling done at the show.

It was good meeting  you Rad, you picked out a real beauty and I am very pleased you chose to partner up with her. Please do not be afraid to use her, you have a life time guarantee for as long as you and I survive.

I hear that attendance was up significantly from last year and Friday was the best sale day I have ever had at a Blade Show. The best part was the time shared with visitors to the show, I was able to visit with many old friends at my table and met new ones who demonstrated keen interest in the high endurance performance knife through their questions and comments.

As with every show some old friends were not there, but I could remember conversations and time shared in the past almost like it was in the present.

Lots of memories at Blade Show!

I confess I'm very sorry and disappointed that this happened. I really didn't think that thieves would patronize the Blade Show.
I do hope you manage to find the knife and punish the perpetrator.

William "Willie" Sutton (June 30, 1901 - November 2, 1980) was a prolific U.S. bank robber. For his talent at executing robberies in disguises, he gained two nicknames, "Willie the Actor" and "Slick Willie."

An urban legend

Sutton is famously (and probably falsely) known for answering a reporter, Mitch Ohnstad, who asked why he robbed banks by saying, "because that's where the money is."

Don't be surprised that thieves would frequent a knife show to add to their collection, or to simply sell their swag for a profit.

The theft is one of two I have had taken in over 30 years of shows. That is great testament to the citizens of the world of knives, 99.999% of our family are honest decent folks. I spent a lot of time with that knive and got to love her dearly, I feel like a child has been abducted. I do not miss the money, but feel concern for her safety.

I thank all for your concern and look forward to making another.l
