Hey everyone,

I thought I'd give a friendly heads-up about the 2006 Atlanta Blade Show. It's gonna run June 16 to June 18 at the Cobb Galeria Centre and Renaissance Waverly Hotel in downtown Atlanta, GA. There's a link on Albion's website. I hope to make it this year. Anyone else planning on going? -Ted

It's a little later in June than the last 2 years. I've gone the last 2 years and had a great time. I wasn't really planning on going this year, though if my schedule is clear I may head there for Saturday and Sunday. I don't know that I'll do the noon on Friday through noon on Sunday thing. If Albion has some new models out by then, I might be more intrigued. Also, Gus may be going and I'd love a chance to meet him and see his recent stuff in person. I guess we'll see.

On a side note, I expect my liver to be recovered by then from all the drinking I did with Harlan, Mike, Nathan, Patrick, and Aaron at last year's event. Happy I think the earliest I went to bed any night last year was 3:00 am.

Happy

Still up in the air.

Might end up taking a new position. Might end up taking a new position that will take me out of the country for a while. Might be that nothing changes. Don't know.

Went in 2004...had a blast. Missed going last year, so may make a valiant attempt this time around.
Still a bit up in the air.

Cheers,

Bill

Yes, a somewhat contreversial figure or so I hear, but also from what I understand one of the greats in the field of knifemaking and responsible for the resurgence at least in part of American Knife making.

I originally did not plan to attend the Blade Show this year. However, I was talking with another forumite yesterday, and he recommended that I reconsider, so I went to check my calendar. The (2 week?) shift in schedule from last year may be a case of serendipity Big Grin . My wife and younger son have just scheduled a two week backpacking trek in the mountains of New Mexico, and their trip just happens to span the Blade Show weekend Big Grin .

Any updates on plans of other forumites?

They are going to go get blisters in New Mexico and you get to go to Blade? Sounds like someone got the better end of that deal. Happy All kidding aside I love backpacking but would never skip Blade for it. Glad you can make it Steve.

Actually, Russ, they are going to the Philmont Boy Scout Ranch in Cimarron, NM. That is 140,000 acres of mountain nirvana for scouters. I was out there, myself, last summer and loved it. I was doing day hikes, and COPE course, etc. I don't care for a 12 day backcountry trek without a shower, which is what THEY are going to do. Nevertheless, they think that THEY have the better end of the deal Laughing Out Loud. And they might be right, because I would have a tough time at Blade - I won't be able to buy anything, since I have already spent about three years of sword budget this year!

Oh really? That's good to hear. I'll get a chance to meet you then, I invariably wander over and talk to Rick a bit.

Well, folks, I will very much appreciate it if anyone can PLEASE HELP ME with the infernal links to the Atlanta Blade Show. I am having exactly, PRECISELY the same trouble as last year!!

I have tried to use this link several times to find out details about the blade show. The links on their site seem to be almost random, and I keep finding myself on pages covering baseball cards and whatever else OTHER THAN blades!! Is anyone else having similar trouble?

Thanks, but that link doesn't help me, either. The first time I tried it, it took me to a page with the headline "Entire Paul Simon Warner solo catalog reissued". I tried the link again, and it took me to a different page, with the headline "A Wonderful 1941 Packard Woodie". These are both Krause Publications Collect.com pages, just not the one for the Blade Show. I guess it must be something strange with my browser??...

Thanks, Chad. Unfortunately, this link takes me right back to the 1941 Packard Woodie! WTF?! !! Like I said, it must be my browser.

I am even ending up on the same, incorrect, webpages as last year!! If any of you, who can actually get to the correct page, will be kind enough to PM or email me (at sdgrisetti@aol.com) the information about the show, that will be a huge help! Thanks!

Is it for show, or retail as well? I'd imagine that all of the companies, smiths, cutlers are there to show their stuff, but is there much to buy, flee market style?

Interesting that the group I belong too, the Swordplay Alliance, will be doing a demo of our fighting style. I wonder if other groups are invited to do the same?

All, in all, it sounds interesting.

From past reports, I believe that there will be many exhibited items, and they will be for sale. But I haven't actually been there before, and I can't get to the @#!!%$*#&^@&#& webpage.

There is stuff for sale that is pretty varied. Although some well regarded people tend to sell what they have on hand very quickly every year.
