    Outside of the average Texas gunshow, I have never been to any kind of knife show. From what I understand, it's going to be huge, there will be tons of things to see and it will take all 3 days.

    So, on that note, I have some questions about Busse and Kin:

    1. Will all three companies be present? If so, will they have separate booths?

    2. Will the Company Stores be present? If so, will they also be at separate booths?

    3. Will Busse have everything for sale on day one or will it be cycled through to spread it out over all 3 days?

    4. What are the chances of everything being sold out?

    5. Will there be classic Busse's for sale as well as 2012 models?

    6. Do I need to haul ass to Busse's booth first thing Friday morning? (I expect sarcasm on this one since we are all each others competition :) )

    BTW, do not test out a Busse on cardboard boxes and tree limbs while you are airing up a tire on your vehicle. I tuned out the sound of the compressor for too long and when I ran back to shut it off, the tire was at 55 psi. That could have sucked!!

    The 3 companies will all be there. The booth is one giant Busse Kin booth. The company store does not set up at Blade Show however Skunk will be lurking around the entire time, I'm sure. Generally the knives come out in intervals throughout the weekend. However some great deals are on the table right at the open of the show Friday. Things go fast at Blade so you need to always be ready when something comes up.

    Broke my blade cherry last year, was one of the greatest weekends of my life. Best part was gettin hammered with Boss man. Am so grateful to of experienced it with Amy there, sure hope she makes it this year. I never understand what all the fuss sourounding blade was. Had been to knob creek prior and didnt think it could be any better considering all the INFI and machine guns, I was wrong (big surprise I know)

    Hey, I'm in one of Rob's pictures!

    Last year was my first Blade too, and it was everything people say and more. Great times, great knives, met some great people, drank some great beer. Can't wait to do it again this year!!
