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.

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.
