Two weeks from tomorrow, the 31st Annual BLADE Show (www.bladeshow.com), the world’s most important knife event, will go down June 8-10 at the Cobb Galleria Centre in Atlanta, Georgia.
Join the over 900 exhibitors that include knifemakers, knife companies, knife accessory companies, knifemaking suppliers, purveyors, swordsmiths, sheath makers, knifemaking equipment manufacturers—in other words, everything that has to do with stuff that cuts—at the biggest knife party anywhere. Show times will be Friday, 2 p.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
In the coming days in this space, you will see capsule descriptions of special events within the event—seminars, the show within a show, the Survival+Tactical Gear Expo, the BLADE Magazine Knife-Of-The-Year® Awards, the annual induction into the Blade Magazine Cutlery Hall Of Fame©, the annual meeting of the American Bladesmith Society held in conjunction with the show—and much more.
In many ways the show starts two weeks from today, Thursday, June 7. That is the day many of the exhibitors start arriving to set up in the mammoth Cobb Galleria Centre show hall, and patrons start arriving to meet and greet their fellow knife enthusiasts for the coming three days of non-stop cutlery revelry.
Here’s hoping you’re one of them!
