    This year we were busy

    180 knives gone by 3 pm on Saturday

    I don’t really start videoing till we sell out and I didn’t feel like I videoed that much but when I threw it all on the editing table there was 80+ minutes of footage

    Lotsa cameos of some of the rock stars of the knife world and a lot of joking around

    We had a great show and want to thank everyone that came to the show and our booth but especially Matt Diskin for making this all happen

    Being able to meet the man (and you Joe) while picking up this beauty was definitely one of the high points of the weekend. I can't wait to see what he's got next year:D

    Joe- thanks so much! I really enjoyed your edit, so many good folks.
    Sam Taylor is one of my favourite knife friends, and I really appreciate you pointing a spotlight on him. I really think that his work is ground breaking and will make a lasting impact.
    James Helm's barong...can't believe he still had it on Sunday. Love that shape

    I could not agree more

    Sam is pushing the envelope and James’s iris leaf shaped Barong was excellent

    Wish you were there

    Thanks for the video.... Mecha is such a nerdy-nerd!!! Lucky for us, he is a titanium sword and machete nerd!!

    I am looking forward to seeing a laminated titanium cutting sword for you to try out.

    All in all, it looked like a great show....

    We need to have a Jason Knight Lunar Landing intervention!!!

    I waited impatiently for this retrospective, the more time passes and the more I'm addicted, thank you for all this work. What extra odd encounters throughout this report. Thanks Joe
    and as my friend Sam would say (the Great absent)
    TERRIBLE ...
    PS: I've already seen at least 10 times, I'm not tired .

    Thanks for the great video,getting to visit the great knifemakers was a privilege and your personable approach
    seemed to help ease the awkwardness of camera in the face conversations.
    That Sand Bath Kiln is really awesome hope to see some of the finishes that produces.

    Good job on the video, really enjoyed it. you really got some great footage of folks we don't get to see very often. I can't get enough of David's work, all three were more than impressive, thanks!

    Thanks much @WValtakis and @Bigfattyt and for the great video JParanee!

    Lorien you haven't yee'd your last 'haw with this ti stuff by any means. There is something new bubbling to the surface that will head your way to get the super Lorien trail busting brutality treatment. And agreed about Helm's barong, that was my favourite thing on his table!
