Blade Magazine knife show Spyderco name tag

Postby sal » Sat Mar 24, 2018 12:51 pm

I was thinking about making a "screen name" name tag for the Blade magazine show. My thought are listed below, but I'm open.

A stainless bug about 1" in diameter with your screen name engraved in bold. On a cord to be worn around the neck during the show? Maybe with a date?

This has come up briefly but I didn't follow up. So now I'm following up. We have to begin now if it's going to happen.

Anyone interested and going to the show?

I would also be most interested in something similar to the Amsterdam plaques! I don't have the finances to attend blade show, unfortunately, but i'd pay a reasonable sum for a "badge"
It would also be very nice to have in Amsterdam to identify fellow forumers/attendees.

Sal, I’m yet another person not going to the show but I’d pay for one as well. Great idea. I think I remember you mentioning this to me last year f the Oregon knife show. I’d wear it to that one next time.

Generally, that’s a cool idea. I would certainly like to have one. It would be like the T shirt: “DD-214 Alumnus”. Some will get it, others won’t. I can not make the Blade Show but I would be up for a Spyderco name tag.

By the way Sal (sorry to threadjack) did you get the story behind Sal's Angels Joyce asked me to mail you?

Hmmm... I was thinking of wearing it on a chain, but that one would likely be too large.

This will be the fourth year that I try to make it to blade show. Sadly I live 2,000 miles away and haven't made it yet. I really hope to make it this year. I would love a Spyderco bug with my username on it either way.

I've not missed a BLADE show since it moved to Atlanta so I'm definitely interested.

Hey Sal,
Never been to the Blade Show, and honestly probably never will. But I would be in for one of these for shure!
Later,
Don

I think it’s a great idea. I like the idea of being able to spot a fellow forumite at the show so personally I would like the bug (and the print) to be large enough to see on someone from a few paces.

I won't be there but it's a neat idea.

For work I run a 6kw CNC laser machine which can cut up to 1" thick mild steel. We can also do engraving with it. We've done a lot of badges/commemorative key chain type things like this, usually out of 14 or 16ga. stainless.

Sal, I’m going to Blade with my grown twins. We all collect Spydercos and we would love a Spydie badge!

Great idea! I will be attending and would love to have one to wear. Would make for a great souvenir from the show as well! Love it!
