    Pierre, David posted a bunch in his vendor sub-forum. Your trio of knives were very popular; at least a dozen people wanted to buy the paring knife, but my wife would not let me sell it :-)

    Sounds like a good and successful event. I wish that I could have participated, maybe next year? Thanks for putting this together David.

    Dave, you know we will always have a spot for you.

    We had one guy stop by who sends you his knives for sharpening, but he did not know about KKF. Hopefully he will pop up here at some point. David Smith's rack card has the KKF web site and logo on the back, and I pointed it out to quite a few people.

    We had a lot of interest in all of the people we were highlighting. In addition to broadening the long-term marketplace for all the vendors/ makers/ suppliers, I hope each of the 8 who participated in the booth see a nice bump in their orders/ commissions in the short term.

    We are going to do this again in 2013 -- the DC show is November 9-10. It will be even bigger and better then 2012. We'll have a bit more tabletop space for displaying all the nice knives, cutting boards, etc., plus we'll also be selling salts/ spices, biscotti and some other stuff.

    If you are in the DC area, hopefully you can make it out to the show.

    DC Show was moved to November 2 and 3, 2013 -- so only a little more than 2 weeks away!

    This is a great chance for DC-area knife knuts to come out and meet BoardSmith, and see a great slsection of his boards. Plus I will be showing off knives from a handful of our favorite knife makers and introducing the great unwashed masses to the world of high-performance and custom cutlery and some handmade accessories.

    Last year Groupon had a 2 for 1 ticket purchase coupon. Not sure who has discounted tickets this year; I think the "thelistareyouonit" site had a 2 for 1 last month.

    Last year I had planned on demonstrating knives and cooking up the produce, but I stayed way too busy talking about the makers to actually do any cutting or cooking. This year I am leaving the onions and induction burner at home, but will still be bringing a few batches of cantuccini to hand out to booth visitors.

    At this point I am not sure if any of the makers will be able to come to the show (last year Butch came and hung out for the last few hours on Sunday), but I am hopeful.

    I hope some KKFers can come out and visit, especially since I could not organize a get-together last month.

    Looks like we'll have 3-4 entry tickets available each day for KKFers who want to come visit. If you are interested please let me know via PM. Only 8 days away!

    We have more free General Admission tickets than I originally thought. Send me a PM if you are interested. They are day-specific, so I will need to know which day you would like it for. David Smith will have a nice collection of cutting boards, lazy susans and even some wood plates for sale. He's also bring some really cool turned wood products from a fellow NC wood artisian. I will be introducing the public to Del, Randy, Pierre, Butch, Marko, Steve Goodson and KKF. Booth 532/534.
