The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
It's been a while by now, about half a year has passed since I was there. But I thought it might be nice for some people to see the actual facilities.
As you arrive at the airport (XNA airport Bentonville) one of the first things that greet you is this:
From the road it looks a little bit like this, I don't have a shot from the freeway. But it's on the other side of where the picture is taken from.
As you approach the facility you start to realise that it's quite big, with the store all the way to the left and all the way to the right the Workshop where the current Resident Knifemaker works from.
From the freeway, a couple of advertisements are visible. At the time they were for the upcoming knife event:
We come to the front of the store
And enter through the doors to find this view (it was a quiet day)
So I took some pictures of the inventory they had in the store
Like some of the custom scrimshawed blades they carry:
A couple of Doziers (and I think some Randalls on the bottom shelf)
Some of A.G.'s stunning laminated shopmade drop point hunters:
A little Leatherman and Gerber
And offcourse a LOT of A.G's own designed knives: (with some Buck's on the bottom shelf)
Spyderco and I think the larger SOG fixed blades:
Schatt and Morgan
Couple of CRKT's
One of the store guys (Cory) posing amidst some KaBar's, Kershaws and SOGs.
A little bit of SOGginess
And what the whole wall looks like
I hope you've enjoyed my little show. I just thought it might be cool to see for those people who've never made it out there.
Been there many times, always a cool visit and always to short even if you stay 3-4 hours.
Thanks for sharing the photos. Definitely looks like worth a trip.
