NEW Better Location!!!

Blade 2017 was too crowded, but a lot of fun.  New knives from Mike Draper, Audra Draper, Darrel Ralph, Dan Winkler, John Cohea, Brian Tighe, Brent Vaccaro, Lone Wolf, and Microtech.
And from makers who are new to the shop:

NY Custom Knife Show 2013
I had a great time at the NY custom knife show for 2013. The Westin hotel is a nicer venue than any New York show has been. I keep wondering in fact when they're going to change the name of the show? The show was bustling with customers, had great energy. I got some new knives from Kevin D. Cross from Connecticutt. I love his primitive, but sophisticated style. New Rockstead knives which are scary sharp. Matt Diskin's double action automatic, Pat and Wes Crawford knives.

Some new knives also are:  Rat Worx Chain driven autos, Reeve Sebenza 25 is available, new Benchmade Knives.

ABS Knife Show - 2013 San Antonio TX
Sharon and I had lots fun in San Antonio aside from the show. We walked nearly the entire River Walk and did it again on a river taxi. We shopped, went to galleries, museums, and took local buses all over town.
We went to all the seminars offered before the show about knife making and collecting, then collaborated on information.  One of the big questions was "How do we encourage more people and younger people to become knife enthusiasts?"  I would like to encourage knife makers to participate in more shows, so collectors can meet them live and in person. I know it's difficult in today's economy but it's important to encourage, educate, and stimulate collectors and enthusiasts.  Kevin Cashen presented a great talk on what happens to steel when it's forged, in layman's terms, and I can never resist his knives, as well.    The show itself was really nice, but small.  Easy to get to know people.
I got some great new knives at the show from  Joseph Keeslar MS from Kentucky.  Joe's knives are the nicest, most comfortable in your hand well balanced working knives I found ever. Dan Petersen MS from Kansas did a really elegant camp knife with leather covered wood sheath in the classic Bill Moran style.
I picked up a couple of Damascus  knives and rings from David Lisch from Seattle Washington.  I loved his seminar on making stag handles and tongs and got to share some of my own skills in knotting leather with him.Richard Epting's front pocket wallet knives are awesome. He is a  talented knife maker and leather craftsman from Texas.
It was great to see Nancy and Gil Hibben, who was honored at the Bar-B-Q.

Many makers did not make it to the New York Custom Knife Show, possibly because of the PR about all the devastation from hurricane sandy in NJ, but everything was fine at the Westin Hotel, which is the nicest venue for the NY show.
We got some great new knives from Darrel Ralph, Theuns Prinsloo, Herb Derr, Tim Britton, Kirby Lambert, Rob Hudson, and Brian Tighe.  We also recently got some of the latest William Henry knives and pens.

New Knives from Greg Dash and Mike Lepore

New Knives from Kirby Lambert, Nate Clark , Jim Minnick, Benchmade, and a spectacular limited William Henry Mitchell.

New Knives from Jot Singh Khalsa, Raymond Coon, and Mike Irie.

 My favorite sense of design are items that appear to be primitive at first, but then you realize the tremendous amount of sophistication.
Just before the show, we got a great lefty liner-lock folder from Chuck Gedraitis.

I would like to say in support of the Knifemaker's Guild, as an associate member, I think anyone interested in knives should join. I do agree with stringent rules and guidelines for members and participants, but also feel different categories should exist within the organization to keep up with the times and encourage membership while maintaining Integrity.  In 1969 I had a discussion with one of my teachers, the distinguished mathematician engineer architect and futurist, Buckminster Fuller.
When I asked him "What is the future of art?", he replied, "The future of art is integrity."
As long as the Guild stands for integrity, I believe it can stand strong.

Blade Show  / Survival and Tactical Gear Expo 2012
The blade show was interesting this year because of more crossover businesses showing their wares. Not just tactical and survival gear, but there were more items for women.
I did meet some newer makers, in particular, Joe Pardue's son,
Robert Carter. He is definitely a man with a future in knife making.
I brought back
Audra Draper's kitchen knife and accessories, Al Pendray's latest in Wootz Damascus from his newly rebuilt shop,  a really nice Damascus hunter from Kevin Cashen, some Higgins neck knives from Colorado, and Darrel Ralph's custom and mid tech butterfly knives.  Charlie Ochs' small fighting bowie is my personal favorite for an all-purpose fixed-blade carry.  I use it as a camp knife since I'm not a tactical guy. Rockstead knives with their razor sharp and sturdy edge using Samurai technology are back in stock.
As I am a big fan of neck knives, I got a nice little collection together for the shop:  Some are by
Tribal, at a basic starting price range. Some are from Elsa Forge by Elsa Fantino.  I love her primitive but slick style. Jay Higgins  and Jake Wilson from Colorado have some rugged little hunters and patch knives.
We are now selling Robert Eggerling Damascus for those who want to venture into their own knife making world.
We are also selling a great selection of hand made and production canes: Burger sword canes, Cold steel sword canes, and hand-carved canes from two great wood carvers, Susan Eaton from New Hope PA and Peddler from Allentown PA.

April 2012
Two daggers from Nate Clark, and a great Mike Irie knife.  Also some knives from Russell Easler, Rob Davidson, Frank Centofante, and Ken Steigerwalt.

New SALE Knives.

East Coast Custom Knife Show 2011
I really enjoyed the show got lots of new knives from both prior makers whose work we have and several makers new to the shop as well.
Jay Hendrickson did a great puka style knife. Tim Britton has some new styles I picked up as well as his classics.  Hidetoshi Nakayama does an awesome style of bolt action pen that, since we sell  William Henry pens, I couldn't resist. We also picked up an older William Henry Automatic as well as some more of their money clips which match the E6 and E10 knives. From Chris Reeve we just got a beautiful bark Ivory Sabenza. My favorite personal carry is Terry Knipschield's small folding Puka. Left and right handed are now in stock. Brian Tighe's Nirk Tighe has it all:  design, tactical, and artistic. I also got a very atypical neck knife from Bud Nealy, as well as my favorite dagger style that he does.
New Makers to the shop include Jim and Joyce Minnick , whose clean crisp lines are the classiest pocket jewelry around, Aaron Frederick , who was recently featured in an article Soldiers making knives for soldiers, and  Oleksander Orebchuk-Bogdanovich - Kazak Knives, whose artistic tactical knives bridge the gap between his Cossack roots and contemporary mystical and tribal artistry.

Winkler II knives are back in stock.
We have what-I've-always-wanted in Chris Reeve's knives and a new vintage Russell Easler knife and Bud Nealy, too.

New Knives:    Dangerous Curves Ahead is our new exciting museum-worthy knife exhibit by Heather Harvey and Audra Draper.  Experience part of the  knife community spirit and the creative process of knifemaking.

March 2011 New Knives - Mike "Whiskers" Allen auto, new maker Ira Lipson, a new style from Tim Britton,  autos from Allen Elishewitz , new knives from Gerber, White Wolf, and Bob Dozier Knives.

Three new William Henry Knives.
Bob Dozier's mid-size titanium frame folder with pocket clip, Tony Bose ivory handle desk knife, awesome Reeve-Vallotton double-action conversion, new maker Tom Krein ,
some more William Henry automatics, an oldy, but great David Boye scrimmed hunter.

December knives include a really nice little art knife by Bill Pease, Tim Britton's latest, several knives by Corrie Schoeman , Joe Kious, Herb Derr, Pat Crawford, Otha, and new to us, Olamic Knives .

New Knives for 2011
I've been hard at work exploring for some new knives.
This month we have two new Bob Dozier large folders with more Dozier fixed blades coming at the end of February and in March. There is a great folder from Joe Szilaski.
Chuck Getraitis did a great butterfly to my specs, and I love his new San Francisco gentleman's knife. It's truly a little gem.
In  my quest for moderately priced hand-made hunting and camp knives I went to the Eastern Sports & Outdoor Show in Harrisburg PA with my friend Bill Goodman. Bill runs the Easton PA knife show which runs the last weekend in September. I met John Johnson from JRJ knives in PA, who is a great "working knife" maker, although his fancy double grinds Bowie is awesome. He does great sheath work, too. I also met Dean Fry, another PA knife maker. Dean makes great working camp knives that are a little more interesting than I usually see around.
Other makers new to the shop are Jeff Chaffee, Dave Winston, and R B Johnson.
We now have Stone River Ceramic knives in the shop, folding and fixed blade. While not art knives, they are "state of the art knives". The folding knives make great everyday carry or camp knives and come with a 5 year guarantee from the manufacturer.

Bob Dozier Freedom Fighters are in.
Reese Weiland Monster custom OFT steel automatic that weighs 2.4 lbs 
New knifes from Dan Winkler, Chuck Gedraitis and Jason Brous.

New William Henry one-of-a-kind Jade Cat Kestrel, Darrel Ralph butterfly knife, Rich McDonald Bowie knife, and Allen Elishewitz folder.
