Hey Folks---

So who's going???

I hope this thread can be about who's coming, and what they're bringing.

This is an absolutely first class show... as a table holder, I felt like we were treated great, and there were only great people that came through the doors and visited with me last year.

I am working like mad on way overdue orders, so I am pretty much relegated to knives that would have gone to Atlanta with me (ala, would'a'been JS test knives), and a couple others if I'm lucky. I'll get pics up soon.

It's in a new hotel this year, and I think it will be GREAT!!! :D :D :D

Hey Nick!

I'll be there! Right now I have three fancy folders to bring along, and just finished gluing up the handles on 5 straight knives. 3 hidden tang hunters (2 with ironwood and one with Sambar stag), 1 full tang hunter with camel bone scales, and 1 boot/small fighter with blackwood.

Still in the works are 3 bowies....2 mosaic, and one 52100. Still wrestling with what's going on them for handles.

I'm taking off this afternoon....taking my lady to the State fair. Going to wander around and eat all that good GREASY food! :)

I`ll be there. I`m doing the club knife this year. I will have 35 of them and hopefully a couple more if all goes well. Nick is right about this show, First class. Randy and the guys do a great job.

Ditto on the show, first class all the way. I did it last year and decided it was a must do for me. Looking forward to seeing the new facilities. So many knives to finish and so little time. Guess I'll have to start burning the midnight oil here next week.

I'll be there. Last year was the first time I did the show. By 10:00am Saturday morning I was telling myself I'd be doing the show again. The BAKCA guys were just great!

I'll be there. It will be great to finally meet Ed Caffrey. I'll be bringing one of Ed's MS test knives along with me. Ed, I assume you would like to see 'Bound by Faith" again, and I sure can't wait to see your new work. Please don't sell everything before opening time Sat :)

Hey Brad!

It will be great to finally shake your hand.....and to see one of my "kids" again!

Don't worry about me selling out......This year I made a new rule for myself...I do not sell any knives until the show opens. It's ticked off some purveyors, but that's just the way it is.

Look forward to meeting you face to face!

I am bringing Luana, and a couple of $$$ :D
This will be our 3rd, and as always look forward to seeing all the great customs, and knifemakers.
Be interesting to see how well it turns out in a new facility, and hope they have plenty of space for the additional knifemakers coming.
Gonna be a hoot!! :cool:
