It is Smoky Mountain Knife Works annual Dealer Rep weekend as well as their Bushcraft skills workshops with Dave Canterbury. I stopped in Friday morning to say hello to Ethan Becker who is meeting with fans at the Ka-Bar display. I visited with Patrick Rollins and Shane Adams of ESEE knives, discussed the PR-4, and they introduced me to ESEE Founder Jeff Randall. I saw TM Hunt and Rick Bain, and a handful of other folks as well.
It’s almost time. This weekend at our retail location in Sevierville, Tennessee is Vendor Rep Weekend (Oct 20-22) and Bushcraft and Survival Skills Weekend with Dave Canterbury (Oct 21-22). In fact, here’s some more great info on the event.
Meet special guest and instructor, Dave Canterbury – TV personality, best-selling author, and co-founder of the Pathfinder School! Join us for two days of survival skills, demonstrations and training by Dave and his staff from the Pathfinder School. They will be teaching important skills to help anyone survive in the wild.

I couldn’t help buying a little steel while I was there. I went in with the intent of picking up some new throwing knives to use with my new knife block. Turns out that SMKW is running several sweet deals this weekend. There is a set of 3 SOG Fusion throwers for only 26.99 (less than at the link), and $20 SOG Twitch (es). I picked up both.
