The 2015 BLADE Show at the Cobb Galleria Centre in Atlanta June 5-7 will have the hottest knives and makers in the largest, most important knife event ever.
Over 600 tables and more than 300 booths will display the world’s latest knives, knife accessories, knife collections, knifemaking equipment and materials and much more June 5-7 at the 34th annual BLADE Show in the Cobb Galleria Centre in Atlanta.
The BLADE Show is the world’s largest and most important knife event and draws knife enthusiasts from every continent and most every knifemaker and knife company you’ve ever heard of—and many you don’t know of who will be the knife legends of tomorrow.
The show will name the world’s most prestigious factory knife honors—the BLADE Magazine 2015 Knife-Of-The-Year® Awards sponsored by New Graham Knives, including the People’s Choice Award voted on by visitors to blademag.com—and will hold the most extensive series of knife instructionals of any knife show in the 2nd Annual BLADE University sponsored by Premium Knife Supply. The show also will recognize the latest inductee into the BLADE Magazine Cutlery Hall Of Fame© and the new Aldo and Edda Lorenzi Award—a $1,000 cash prize to a knifemaker who exemplifies the best in terms of teaching others how to make knives. If he qualifies, Dan Keffeler will attempt to win an unprecedented third straight BLADE Show World Championship Cutting Competition conducted by BladeSports International.
Knifemakers from the Knifemakers’ Guild, the American Bladesmith Society—including some of the world’s finest handforged knives up for bid in the ABS Auction and testing for ABS master and journeyman smith status—and the world’s best unaffiliated makers will all be on hand to exhibit their latest custom knives, with some entering the show’s custom knife judging competition. Assorted demos on how to throw knives, the use of Japanese swords, how and what to buy and collect and many others, knife giveaways, lotteries, knife club meetings, after show hours revelry in the world-famous Pit, the sunken lounge of the show’s host hotel, the Renaissance-Waverly—these and much more all await you June 5-7 in Hot ‘lanta. Don’t miss it!
