    How would I find information on upcoming knife, exclusive, shows? I am interested in going to a knife show that has a large selection of custom knifes.

    I went to Blade Show West last year - first knife show I ever went to. Good collection... also 1/4 mile away from my office :) I picked up a Benchmade Auto and a Swamprat knife.

    The Oregon Knife Collector's Show looks interesting, but ugh, I hate driving to Eugene. I might just wait a bit longer and hit Blade West again.

    Blade West is a no go this year. It's been cancelled.

    It's considerably larger than Blade Show West and well worth the drive. I'm 3+ hours further north than you are & I still think it's worth the trip.

    Bummer - I'd heard rumors that it wasn't coming back, so not surprised, but disappointed all the same. It was a nice size show w/ high quality. I know several makers preferred this show, so I hope they switch back to the Eugene show.

    I've also heard good things about the Montana Knifemakers show in Missoula, but that's a really long trip....
