    Oct 19, 20, 21. (Well, 99% of you will note that this show was held across the Hudson river, within eyesight of the Empire State building, but held in Secaucus NJ.)

    I had a great show, in many ways: I had lots of projects, and I was able to visit and see a LOT of attendees. Moreso than the norm, because longtime promotor Steve D'lack and his crew offered me a spot in the show hall itself, off in the corner. Perfect.

    My wife Susan and I arrived on Friday morning and left Sunday afternoon. Tired and happy.

    Doing a show is BIG work: both at the show, and the editing and followup later. (The shooting at the show is only the tip of the iceberg compared to the amount of hours I need to spend completing images and prints, and doing submissions.)

    I have finished the task and am ready to show you what arrived at my table over the weekend.

    Each and every knife and maker have a story. I will return and edit comments later. :)

    All the images are in alphabetical order, and are clickable to a larger version.

    That's it for now. I have more of Daniel Winkler's 'Winkler Knives II' hardworking knife images left to process.

    Thanks for admiring.

    As usual, you do not disappoint, ever! Those are all beautiful, Coop!

    My favorites, I think, are side-by-side, the Hanson and the Koji, two gorgeous folders.

    Jim, thanks for the great look at the show goods!

    Your my source to see Jay Hendricksons knives! I see him a couple times a year at the Bill Moran shop but rarely get to see his work! I will have to ask him for a private showing we will be at the shop early next month.

    It was excellent seeing you two briefly. I did not spend much time at the show but the room and layout was nice. Great photos. I am pretty inruiged by this particular shot. The damascus seems to show some of that depth that can often be hard to capture. Does it have to do with the angle that the knife is set up on?

    Thanks all, for the nods. Yes, this was fun.

    Jon, that's a pretty hard reflection straight off a mirror. Yes, it shows the pattern extraordinarily well.

    Daniel and Karen didn't request more than a single sideview, and I was intrigued by that filework. I chose this pose to show THAT off, and you are seeing the side benefit. Plus I like to mix it up.

    Again, thanks.

    Didn't Rob have that large Fisk Bowie shot? I don't see it unless I keep missing it.. By the way those gold hansons are like treasures.
