Knife show on a budget

Posted on March 18, 2019 at 13:00 11 Comments

Kaylin and I, along with my grandson, Nik, and son-in-law, Matt, made the 5 hour drive up to the Dalton show, this past weekend.

While the biggest topic of conversation was Jan's not being able to come, we still had a great time.  As always, I enjoy seeking out other iKC members and sponsors; special shout out to Ken and Roger, of Blue…

My interest in knife collecting and knife collections sort of fell into my lap. I was given the gift of a knife collection from a friend. I counted 60 knives from various makers and styles. It immediately generated an interest in learning more about knives and more about what I was actually given. I am reaching out to a couple of forums to help me identify and learn more about each knife I have. The collection ranges from really nice Buck and Schrade knives to small collectable folding knives that have "Drink Coca-Cola" with the price of 5 cents on it. It looks to be a real smorgasbord.

Thanks! I appreciate it.

I've dabbled in collecting over the years, but have gotten serious about it in my retirement years. (since 20114).

I just snagged a nice 4 blade LF&C for a great price and am pretty excited about it.

Also, I notice you're in SC. I lived in Beaufort from 1978 to 2000 and my daughter and granddaughter live in Columbia. My wife and stepdaughter (who own two stores) just got back from a trade show at the Cola fair grounds.
Lastly, my older brother was born in Port Royal, so as you can see, I have quite an attachment to you Sandlappers. :-)

Geekey Multi-tool (clone)

Couldn't see paying $20.00 for the original, but for less than $4.00 it's not a bad keyring one piece tool.

Dan Graves artifact walrus ivory

"Ok, Dennis, I'm not necessarily a Damascus fan, but that blade is nice.  What I really like is the ivory.  It looks amazing and really gives character to the knife.   Simply beautiful. "
