    Will anyone here be making it? I realized that I'll be in town through Friday for some Army training, so I might be able to make at least a day of the show.

    Friday is the best, but it's worth going, especially if you've never been.

    I'm just posting so that I can find this thread again. I carried a pocket knife as a kid/young man, and have recently discovered that they're still interesting to me.

    Looks like there's one in Atlanta Jun 7-9, and a Blade Show West, Portland OR, in Nov.

    Blade is always in Atlanta the first weekend in June.

    Blade West may move around, assuming it continues.

    June 7, 8, 9. (Doesn't open until 2pm on Friday)

    Cool show. You get to see some very neat tools as well as knives and parts for making knives.

    In the last couple of years there has been a "tactical" adjunct display area with gun stuff and prepper stuff.

    It's always appreciated to have folks come by KR and donate.

    Try to get in earlier if possible.

    Lakeland's only 400 miles from me (Florida's a looong state...) but I do travel that way (and come racing by Atlanta that same day) every two months or so... My next run, I'll make a point of checking out both if their shows and my schedule get anywhere near close...

    As an aside, I often wonder why things (and shows) I'm interested never seem to show up down here in paradise.... I tend to spend my days on the water way back up inside wilderness areas so most of the social scene down here goes right by me.

    Too difficult to get to there by air conveniently/affordably. That's key in shows like Blade or SHOT.

    No Busse knives? When my son and I went in 2010, people went crazy over Busse's new knife releases.

    Wow. I hadn't been in 2 years and has the show grown. Almost out grown Cobb Galleria. No more separate section for tactical stuff (gun accessories). The show spilled into a second smaller ballroom and there were tables in the lobby as well.

    Met John and Jeff and contributed to Knife Rights. Made a contribution. There are so-o-o-o-o many knife companies. Not talking about the custom makers, but name brand companies. Had no idea how many there were, including one from Russia. If you're into making your own knifes there's every stock piece and part and tool you could imagine.

    This is only one small corner of the show floor.

    Southern Grind's booth, which had a marvelous Damascus folder made for the show. 1 of 40 I think.

    Oh, yeah, and me trying to win a free knife.

    Thanks for the pics and sharing - I'd look forward to any other pics you have of the show or its goods on display...

    I spent Friday at the Show after skipping it for the last two years. Had a wonderful time. Didn't see you hso at Knife Rights, but I only passed by their booth a couple times.
