William Henry Studio will give away a $10,000 knife to a lucky BLADE Show ticket holder during the 30th Annual BLADE Show June 10-12 at the Cobb Galleria in Atlanta.
The one-of-a-kind knife is William Henry’s B12 pattern with stunning engraving by Don Patch and a spear-point blade of Hornet’s Nest damascus forged by Mike Norris. Gemstones include single diamonds set into the thumb stud and lock-release button.
Patch’s copious scroll engraving is inlaid with numerous “sprouts” of 24k gold and oval scenes on both sides of the handle. The mark side reads “BLADE SHOW” in 24k gold with “30th Anniversary” on a scroll banner. The flip side is a scene of a bladesmith hammering a 24k-gold blade, with 24k-gold “sparks” flying in all directions.
Each BLADE Show ticket holder is eligible to win the knife. It’s easy. Here’s how:
•After you buy your BLADE Show ticket, visit any or all of the booths of the American Knife & Tool Institute, Knife Rights and the Custom Knife Collectors Association, fill out a form and drop it in the tumbler at the applicable booth (AKTI, Knife Rights and/or the CKCA).
•The drawing will be the Saturday afternoon of the show at the William Henry booth.
There will be more information on the knife and the drawing in the BLADE Show Directory at the show.
The idea behind the knife giveaway is not only to reward some lucky knife enthusiast and to celebrate the landmark 30th anniversary BLADE Show, but also to direct knife enthusiasts to three entities—Knife Rights and the American Knife & Tool Institute, and the Custom Knife Collectors Association—that protect the rights of knife enthusiasts and further the pursuit of collecting custom knives, respectively.
William Henry’s Matt Conable put it best.
“[This knife] will be donated at the show to help our industry organizations spread the word about the challenges we all face as designers, makers, manufacturers, purveyors, collectors, and users of edged tools,” he noted. “We believe it is about all of us, together, working towards a common vision of advancing and protecting our American knife heritage.”
