Is anybody going to the quickly approaching Oregon Knife Show in Eugene? I'm hoping the
crowd will be represented. Does anybody have any good prior experience with this show to share?
Yes. I plan to attend Sunday.
I've never, knowingly, met another forum member there besides the Spyderco staff. And that experience was, in itself, worth attending the show. Really. However, I don't know if any staff will be in attendance next week.
I enjoy the show, people and
stuff, so much that I doubt that I could stay away even if I was broke, afoot and two days dead. It is a highlight, high water mark, of my interest in cutlery each year. Last year I found several custom Boguszewski knives, bot one for less than a third of what it originally sold for, later received a letter about the knife from the maker, and was whole-heartedly thanked by the vendor for making the purchase. Open your eyes and you will see fantastic things that you have never seen before, maybe have the opportunity to buy, and maybe never see again. The show has never been routine in the 5 consecutive years I've attended.
You find me at the show and I will give you a hearty hand-clasp and something appropriate & neat to go with the upcoming clear Manix 2.
