Here are two of Guy's knives from the exhibit, flanking one of mine -- these folding knives were the pocket-sized versions of bowies and dirk knives, and are an important part of our exhibit.

We'll have a grand opening Dec. 14th & 15th, and additional events the weekend of the Arkansas Custom Knife Show in February -- otherwise the museum is open 7 days a week and you can stop by anytime it's convenient. This is going to be something really special!

I have a few knives I've loaned to the Museum and look forward to seeing the exhibit.
