    Lot of nice knives, but of the current lot. I would like the R. M. Green dagger. Smooth and elegant.

    Good thing I'm poor (or maybe a bad thing?)

    Thanks for posting Coop

    I helped run a regatta this weekend and had to hit the 'pause' button on edits. Regardless, here are a few that will perk your appetite:

    As you can see, Fort Worth TX drew in a great crowd of talented makers.

    Still more to come in the next few days.

    Zeiba's Bowie is off the charts. That guard sure is different than your typical S-guard.

    The ICCE = Knifemakers Guild and the American Bladesmith Society combined Show.

    This show is the ONLY other opportunity for a maker to be tested for ABS status outside of Blade in June.

    Noted maker Shayne Carter has a daughter's wedding on the Blade weekend, so he committed to finishing and submitting his set for THIS show.

    He is the first maker to have passed his Mastersmith test at an ICCE Show!

    I give you solid proof of his acceptance and status:

    (Group of ALL his knives including the 'performance test' blade signed by MS Tim Hancock.)

    That's IT! What you see above are only the knives which either won an award or the makers had me shoot. There were SO many other great knives bought and sold, or simply didn't get photographed.

    I promised images finished within two weeks. I'm two days early. ;) :thumbsup:

    We expect to return to the ICCE Show next year. Thanks for viewing!
