There was a lot of excitement coming out of the knife show, in Dalton, Georgia, this past weekend.

My daughter and I were both excited to see Jan and Donnie along with fellow collectors David Selph and Randall Vaughn.


BUT,  that's not all that impressed me...

The first thing we heard, when we arrived, was a door prize of an iKC calendar being awarded.

As I moved around the show, I saw other evidence of an iKC presence there, in the way of our sponsors and advertisers. 

These folks were exhibitors as well as members of our community.  In addition to their displays, they proudly displayed iKC cards and invitations.

I was real proud to see the great number that were there and wanted to take a minute to recognize those that we talked to. 

Alphabetically, it went something like this;

Roger Cunningham was there with Ken Mundhenk.

Ms. Courtny and Ken Daniels, representing Queen and The Daniels Family lines.





Ken Mundhenk and Blue Creek Cutlery.



Terry and Ms. Cherry and TC Collectible Cutlery.



Brad Vice with Alabama Damascus Steel and the National Knife Museum.




I didn't get to see Mark Zalesky, but he had a Knife World table right inside the door.


While we missed him, Steve Koontz was there with Knives TV.


Steve has his own discussion category and group here at iKC…




If you've taken the time to check out the above sponsors and advertisers, be sure to check out these others, folks that help make iKC the best group on the internet.

And while you're there, say thanks for their support.

No wonder you missed me -- I spent what seemed like most of the show away from my table talking with folks about the pending ban on old ivory or other subjects of varying importance. Next show, just pick up a book from my table and start waving it around like you're going to buy it -- I'll materialize out of thin air!

Nice blog JJ, thanks for spreading the good word...

Each member and sponsor at iKC bring their own unique personality and perspective.  The folks that sponsor us do so because they believe in us and the concept that there can be a "family" of collectors online.  Thanks JJ, I agree

You know, guys, I can't express exactly how good it felt to meet these folks. Now, when I deal with these dealers, I know that I'm dealing with "real" people and not with some faceless entity.
