Take yourself and your kids to the 31st Annual BLADE Show (www.bladeshow.com) at the Cobb Galleria Centre June 8-10 in Atlanta and help educate your youngsters on the true meaning of knives in today’s culture.
Join former National Knife Museum Curator Pete Cohan and Travis Ferguson, chief operating officer of Smoky Mountain Knife Works, as they outline “SharpKidz,” a revolutionary new program that promises to teach young boys and girls about all knives, knife safety and the pivotal roles knives and the people who use them play in every segment of society (Sunday, June 10, 11:30 a.m., Room 108). In addition, take your children to ABS’ special “Bladesmithing For Kids” (Saturday, June 9, 11:30 a.m., Room 108) conducted by ABS bladesmiths Wes Byrd, Joe Keeslar and Tim Potier, and then to ABS master smith Jay Hendrickson’s 26th Annual “How To Forge Knives,” with the able assistance of ABS bladesmith Tim Carr and his portable forge (Saturday, June 9, 12:30 p.m. The Courtyard).
All BLADE Show ticket holders are admitted to the show’s seminars free of charge.
