Just want to let everyone know I will be at the DC Metro Cooking & Entertainment Show at the DC Convention Center next week, November 2 and 3. Like last year I will be in a booth with WildBoar under the banner WildBoar's Kitchen. We've gone bigger this year (10x20 booth), so we'll have a lot of display area. Booth numbers are 532/534. I am bringing 45 cutting boards of various materials and sizes, plus a dozen and a half lazy susans and -- new for this year -- some wood plates that will all be for sale, maple, cherry and oak from another talented NC artisan Mike Davis. In addition, I will have a collection of beautiful turned segmented bowls, urns and decorative items from a highly talented NC artisan named Charlie Stickney. These segmented turnings have to be seen to be believed, the level of craftmanship is that high.
The other David (Wildboar) will once again be introducing the public to some of the premier knifemakers. He will be showing knives from Delbert Ealy, Randy Haas, Pierre Rodrigue, Marko Tsourkan and Butch Harner, as well as a leather knife roll from Steve Goodson. Besides handing out information on the makers, he will also be introducing knife-curious show attendees to KKF. Knowing David as I do, he will be talking non-stop to everyone who comes by the booth about those knives and makers. His expertise and knowledge will shine.
So if you are in the area and are interested in seeing my work, or some knives from one of the makers, or a Steve Goodson knife roll, please come and visit.
Here is a link to the show: http://www.metrocookingdc.com/ There are a lot of cooking demonstrations and appearances by celebrity chefs, some of which require special tickets.
Wildboar will have 16 free general admission tickets, so if you are interested in coming to the show please send him a PM and make arrangements. He'll need to know which day you would like the ticket for, and will have to work at a time to meet you outside the exhibit hall to give you the ticket.
So please come out and visit us next weekend, we'd love to see you.
