    I won't be there, but I will be getting a Titanium Koppo-ized Cyclone Stick from the Jones Bros after it is displayed at Blade.
    Just a few more weeks! Oh so far away!

    I just got back from the show a little while ago and it was easily twice as big of a turnout as it was just two or three years ago. With as many folks as there were there today, I imagine Saturday and Sunday will be packed. A knife maker I know gave me another VIP pass so I may go again tomorrow. I didn't buy anything since I can't afford to but there were all kinds of great knives to add to the mental wish list. I did manage to sell a few paracord lanyards, keychains, and bracelets while walking around so at least my gas and lunch money is covered. ;D

    Well, I didn't get to go back up to the show, my back has been acting up and there's no way I'd be able to walk up and down the aisles browsing the 600+ tables of knives again :(. At least I got a good look around on Friday. One of the guys on BladeForums(UnknownVT) posted some pics he took of some of the well known knife makers at the show.

    Awesome, wish I could have been there.
    Well, I got the next best thing.
    I have a very thick Titanium Bracelet coming straight in from the hands of Fred Perring via Duane of EDC knives. Many thanks to Duane.
    I also have a Titanium Cyclone Stick made especially for me from Barry Jones of Jones Bros. It happens to be on display at blade. Maybe some of you who went to Blade saw it. I haven't seen it yet, so you can tell me about it. ;D

    No, I didn't see that DH. Blade was fun, despite me physically feeling like stepped on dog doo.
