If anyone is aware of any scheduled knife shows in the St. Louis area, I would appreciate hearing about them (date & location).

Thanks

There's one in January at the Carpenter's Hall...not sure of the actual date, but it shouldn't be hard to find out.

That's a gun show, and not a very good one at that. Very small room with very tight aisles.

The St. Louis KNIFE show is at the end of January, in the Carpenter's Union Hall. It's a good show.

It's the third weekend of January, I am supposed to pick up a handmade folder from the maker at the show.

Is that the one on or around Hampton Ave? If so, I've been before, good selection of knives.

Yep, that the one. The same exit as the Zoo, except you go the other direction South. Only a couple of blocks South of hwy 40.

Hey guys... might check the date... my calender from the OKCA has it the same weekend as Reno and Las Vegas.. Jan 28-30...

However, I have had calenders from groups that weren't accurate... and unfortunately, I can't attend any one of 'em! :grumpy:

Hope y'all have fun!

Especially if Danbo decides to show off some of his new booty!!! :D

Does anyone know if the Metro (train) takes you very close to where this show is? Thanks

No, the Metro goes pretty far North of the show. The show is a few blocks South of Hwy 40, while the Metro ventures North, shortly after the stadium and heads towards the airport.

I turned down a couple of mighty good shows to do this one :D
Seriously though, I've been attending the Gatway Area Knife show for 10 years and it's a great show that not many know about. It has 100+ tables, some fine makers and even a few good dealers :) Ya'll stop by if you can, ya hear.

How was the show today? I got ready to leave at 6:00 a.m. and the roads were too bad for me to go. I will try again in the morning. Is this show worth a 3 1/2 hour drive to go to? Are there very many custom makers there? Thanks
