Blade Show West Coming Oct 5–7


The world’s biggest knife show is getting a spinoff… and it’s nearly here.

BLADE Show West, which takes place in Portland at the Oregon Convention Center from October 5 to 7, is looking to be a great new annual tradition.

So far there are more than 200 exhibitor booths and tables planned as well as free exhibitor demonstrations and — a personal favorite — more Knife of the Year awards.

Here’s more from a press release:

Join the number 1 knife source, BLADE Magazine in the “Knife Capital of the US”, Portland, OR, October 5-7, 2018 at the Oregon Convention Center. BLADE Show West is the best place to engage expert knife handlers, precision craftsmen, and master knife makers in one location. Explore your passion for knife making while checking out high-end blades and gear. Plus, learn a new skill during exhibitor demos and chat with your favorite knife/outdoor gear makers firsthand.

Why Portland you might ask? It’s the Knife Capital of the United States, which you can learn more about in our post from 2016.

If you’re going, tickets are now on sale. When you order online, $15 gets you one day and $30 gets you three days. If you wait until after October 3, $20 gets you a day and $40 gets you three days. You can pick up tickets in advance here.

Help BLADE Show West start off right.

  1. I have my tickets, and I saw ads for it on ESPN’s Formula One race Sunday and the qualifying on Saturday.
