Matt -
Thanks for the offer of the discount ticket, but I've already got one, thanks.
Took a look at your site. You seem to have some very practical, low-hype knives. I particularly like your ATS-34 kitchen knives, and hope you bring a good selection of them to the Classic show. Do you have a booth assignment yet, or do you know where I could get a show vendor diagram?


They did not send me an assignment, so I assume that the assignments and map (if there is one) will be handed out at the door. Yes, I am currently planning on having a couple of paring knives and a chinese-style cleaver there.

The paring knives will be 440C, but the cleaver will be ATS34. I worry about kitchen knives laying in the sink, or taking trips through the dishwasher, so I prefer using 440C. A properly made and heat treated 440C knife is so much better than any factory stainless knife that I think it's generally worth getting the extra stain resistance.

To close to the Shot Show. To bad too.
