    360 tables of "things that go cut". :)

    Oregon Knife Collectors Association (OKCA) show. One if the largest custom knife shows in the world. Right here in Orygun. Saturday 8 am - 5 pm - Sunday 9 am - 3 pm. $6 admission. Free parking. Easy access from the Interstate. At the Lane County Convention Center located here:


    There will be several experts doing free appraisals of knives and edged weapons.

    Collector's displays of knife collections.

    Free demonstrations throughout both days including:
    forging damascus blades
    medieval swordfighting
    how to sharpen knives
    and many others.

    On the same site is a Collectors West gun show too, if you're interested. Just a stone's throw from the knife show.

    Well worth the drive.

    I'm not really a knife guy, but my son is so we went today. It is a very large show, easily twice the size of the gun show also happening in a smaller building in the fair complex.

    As you would expect, there were a lot of knives at the knife show and quite a few impressive custom knifes displayed buy their makers. I bought a Kershaw Scallion exactly like This one for $20. Yes, it is a xxxx blem, but it doesn't look like it.

    My son, the knife guy, spent over $500 on 3 knives. He was extremely happy with them and enjoyed the show quite a bit.

    My son and I go every year, get a hotel room and spend the weekend. We have group from another forum, USN, (Usual Suspect Network) that go every year for a get together. We spend as much time partying together as we do at the show. Had a great time again this year. It is a good opportunity to GTG with friends and also pick up some nice knives. I scored a Chris Reeve Damascus Mnandi for about 1/3 off retail price. My son picked up a limited edition Microtech UT6
