    Knife Expo 2012 - Pasadena California - March 23rd thru 25th

    March 23rd thru 25th there is a knife show in Pasadena California.
    I skipped last year, but the year before was a really good show. Didn't want to miss it this year.

    The show is called Knife Expo 2012. This is the show's 27th year.
    It is held at the Pasadena Convention Center
    300 East Green Street, Pasadena, CA 91101

    I will be at table #s 104 and 105 along the back wall.
    Hopefully I will get to see some of you at the show.

    I went last year and had a good time. If I make it this year, I'll make sure to stop by your booth and pick up something. I've been meaning to pick up a small block of something nice to have a friend turn a new shaving brush for me.

    I went last year and it was fun. I met Shinichi Watanabe and bought a gyuto off of him. I think that weekend will be last in California but I definitely want to try to make it out.

    I'll try to show up. My in-laws are thinking of visiting around that time.

    This show also has a bad memory for me that sometimes gives me nightmares.

    As I was setting up my tables, an older gentleman approached me asking if I would be interested in some Ironwood burl?
    He was ending his knifemaking career because of health reasons. Without thinking I told him "No Thank You" and suggested he talk to one of the other suppliers who had a table there.

    After I finished setting up I wandered over to see the other supplier, curious to see if he bought the ironwood.
    He had, 50 blocks of old stock ironwood burl for $500.
    I still have bad dreams when I remember this.
