BLADE Show 2016: Right Around The Corner

It is that time of year again. The time when visions of shiny sharp things dance in our brains, and the prospect of seeing friends old and new sets our minds running. Thats right, it is time for BLADE Show 2016!

I, for one, can’t wait. Frankly, I’ve been looking forward to it since I pulled back up to my house after last year’s BLADE. As I’ve said before, the people you get to meet at the event is by far the best part. I’m excited to catch up with friends and contacts that I have made, and looking forward to making some new ones as well.

Clay and I will be canvassing the floor with our cameras in hand. Make sure to follow our Instagram and Twitter feeds (@knifetruth for both platforms) for up to date photos of all the cool stuff we are seeing. If there is anything or anyone specific you would like us to check out, be sure to mention it in the comments below.

Don’t forget the contest we are running either! Keep on sharing our posts and referring your friends to get some stickers and for a chance to win a knife. We don’t know what it will be just yet, but we will have our eyes peeled for something cool to pick up from the show floor.

I also want to give a huge thank you and shout out to friend of the blog, L.T. Wright Handcrafted Knives. After being denied media passes by the powers that be, L.T. hooked Clay and I up with a pair of VIP passses for the duration of the show. Be sure to swing by his booth to check out the new steel they are bringing. There is some seriously cool stuff they have in store! (sneak peek here)
