This coming weekend, May 23&24, plus the two weekends following, I’ll be demonstrating and selling at the New Jersey Renaissance Faire! Stop on out, see me, pick up that knife you’ve always wanted, I’ve got 28 new unrevealed pieces just for this show, there’s bound to be one that suits your fancy.. Or just hang around, eat a turkey leg and say hello! Look forward to seeing you!

Weekend Wrap-up, Updates and More

I had a lot of fun this past weekend at the Eastern Pennsylvania Knife Collectors Association 2015 show. Aside from meeting some great customers I got to chew the fat, swap stories and tricks with knife makers Greg Dash, Jim Siska, Adam Fink and Bill Odor. Made a few dealer contacts as well and perhaps I’ll get some exposure through shows I cant attend through them. This weekend was really about networking more than it was about filling my wallet and I have to say that each knife maker, dealer and customer I had the opportunity to talk with brought something new to my table. Thanks again to everyone, truly loved the show!

This was the first actual knife show I’ve shown my work at and being awarded Best in Show was a true surprise and honour. It’s awesome to be recognized by your peers and customers alike for what you do.

I’ll be updating the website this evening with new products but in the meantime I’ve returned the store online. There is a small chance I may put a table at the Mason-Dixon Show this coming weekend for a day, need to make some phone calls and I’ll update the site with news when I know!

EPKCA Show 2015 April 18 & 19

It’s a little last minute, but I just confirmed that I will have a table at the annual Eastern Pennsylvania Knife Collectors Association 2015 Show in Wind Gap, PA this coming weekend! This is actually my first foray into the knife show scene. Fingers crossed. It’s a different market than Renaissance faires, but I figure nothing ventured nothing gained, right? I’ll be working overtime in the shop to finish up some new pieces just for this upcoming weekend. I’m excited and a bit nervous. I know there’s going to be some cheap Pakistani & Chinese knives on tables, antiques, and possibly some other makers – no idea yet as to who or if any of them are bladesmiths like myself or stock removal guys. I need to find some display cases!
