Blade Show !!!

Oct 5, 1998
Hello everyone, its 1 am and I just got in from Blade Show.
It is GREAT! As soon as I walked in I saw Darrel Ralph talking to Kit Carson, after meeting the two of them I walked about looking in awe at table after table of knives. It was really cool to walk around and see the Member sticky's that Mike had printed up, I met alot of Members, and not a single one of them looked anything like what I thought they would. Special mention goes to Adam, I must say he's taller than I thought.
After the show closed we headed down to Ruby Tuesdays and Rob Simonich entertained us. At our table also sat Lori Turber, someone that isnt mentioned to often on the forum, but it was really great to sit down and talk with her...all forum members and lurkers owe her a big thank you for all the time Mike spends on the forums. All the members at Ruby Tuesdays owe Mike a big thank you for paying the drink tab! If this post doesnt make alot of sence its because we have been running the drink tab up since 7:00.

I'll head off to bed with this, the quote of the day from Spark

"I'm not stupid, my names not Mike"
(I wont tell on him about not being able to plug the phone line into the modem, but its hard to belive he actually runs this forum
There's no place like the Blade Show....There's no place like the Blade Show....There's no place like the Blade Show...Darn! It worked for Dorothy in Oz....I'm still here in Kodiak! Aaarrghhhh!

Have fun guys....I'm with ya in spirit.


Thanks for the peek, ShadedDude. Give us a few more when you get a chance, it's neat to get the different perspectives of the show.
Like Greg, I have to live vicariously thru those of you who can attend.

Thanks SD, I knew it was a good idea to wear my boots with 5 inch heels that day
. I'd also like to say that SD was alot younger than I thought he was.

I also got to meet Senator, Mike, Spark, SD, CJ and Kit. Just to name a few. Great place.

I'll have to fimnd a scaner once I develop my photo's.

Also check out the Blade Show forum. Thats where other people are posting live from the show.


Self improvement is a hobby of mine :).

Oh Yeah, Shaded Dude. Your are alot of a better guesser than Spark is. He thought I was Orential.
. Wonder how he came up with that.

I'm green with jealousy. There, I admitted it. They say that confession is good for the soul.

Walk in the Light,

It doesnt take much to make a better guess than Spark

Anyone else see him try to plug the phone in the modem?
Hey Yekim!

Believe it or not guys, Yekim drove from Alaska to the Blade Show! Him and a friend drove down! I thought I had it tough driving 900 miles one way, but he's got me beat! It was nice meeting ya, tell your friend, can't think of his name, to start posting here, especially when he gets his sword!

What a great show, I got some goodies that we can use for our company, and met some great people.

Thanks Mike Tuber for the free drinks on FRi and Sat.

I must say it was worth going to Georgia and meeting the guys who I see post on these pages. Learned a lot about knives and knife fighting, watch out for mad Mike who was wearing shorts and pulled out a 11.5" Bill Bagwell on me :), I was never so shocked in my life !

Be talking to ya later, have to get back to work.

P.S. G2 e-mail me with your address as I found your hat !!!


I was lookin' for that Hat! I left early in the morning on Sunday and didn't turn on the lights so as not to wake up Senator and since the hat is black I couldn't find it.

Thanks WLL!
