    Breaking down is never fun but no one got hurt and I'm home. It was still a fun weekend. Here is a link to another thread with pictures from the show:

    Here are a few of my own pictures. I apologize for the picture quality and there were a LOT of pictures I wish I could have gotten but didn't.

    This is a knife that Mr. Karl Anderson brought to show how he shapes his handles.

    I can't even begin to describe how much better all of these knives looked in person. I was blown away by the incredible talent represented at this show. You should have heard some of the conversations being had about techniques and how one maker does something vs. another.

    The respect level among the makers was tremendous and everyone was incredibly friendly. Getting to sit down and listen to Lin Rhea and Jerry Fisk discuss how they each achieve a particular result was enlightening.

    Getting hands on instruction on forging from Brion Tomberlin was a highlight for me. Even though he did kind of trick me into doing a "demo". I'd sure do it again though. It was a blast.

    I had so many questions for so many makers but didn't want to interupt anyones conversation because of all of the great information I was hearing.

    I highly recommend that everyone make it to shows and/or hammer ins to meet and visit with the makers. It is a real treat.

    jprice76, wish you could have been there but it does look like this may turn into an annual event. I'm sure there will be a lot of buzz about it next year. The makers all had a great time.
