It was great to attend the show, to meet some KKF folks, to see Hoss and to make some connection with knife makers from all over the United States.
Seeing so much of amazing work made me want to learn more, so starting this summer I will be taking classes in forging, folders making, damascus making, swords making and other things. Kitchen knives will remain my main interest, but I would like to expand my horizon with things that I find personally appealing. Besides, the new skills will be transferable to kitchen knives, as for instance forging will lead to blades with integral bolsters that I hope to be able to offer by fall-winter of 2014.
Overall, I am very glad I attended the show and I plan to attend it again next year.
Thanks again to those of you who came by my table.
