I can't wait to meet the Spyder crew!


I'm excited about this show. I'm a knife show newb and don't really know what to expect. Will there be folks sharpening/reprofiling knives on site?

I have not seen any reprofiling on site but there has been a couple different table holders who have offered knife sharpening for a fee at previous shows.

Who else is planning on going to this show? I can't stop thinking about all of the new Spydies that I might get to fondle. I also plan on bringing some trading fodder. :)

That is awesome, man. :) Wish I could go too.
As with our Brother Demoncase at the Meet, we will be relying on you to be our eyes and ears at the Oregon Knife Show! :D :)

Well that sucks! Couldn't you just put your life on hold for one weekend?

Just kidding. We'll see you next time hopefully.

Oh, I do. I am thrilled to say that I've seen some amazing things today, met some amazing people, and bought a few discontinued Spydies. More details and pics after I get home. :D

Had a great time! I met the Spyder Crew (Sal, Gail, Joyce) and some fellow forumites (RadioactiveSpyder, Ferris Wheels, fellyjr, Ed Schempp, and another knife collaborator named Chris)(sorry, can't remember his last name. Maybe someone can help me out with that). It was nice to meet you all! Everyone was so nice!

And now for the knives:

:D

The Moki on the bottom I bought from Sal. As I understand it, it was from his personal stash.

Here's a few quick and dirty pics. (please forgive the fingerprints and poor photography) :o

Sal, Gail, and Joyce were great! I learned a lot from Sal especially. He is a wealth of knowledge!! Thanks Spyderco!!!

I was supposed to be there but that thing called life decided to derail all my plans for this weekend. Hope I can make it next year. Glad to hear everyone who went had a great time can't wait to read stories and see more pics!
