Blade show in Atlanta this year will also have the Tactical Gear Expo in the same part of the Cobb Galleria convention center.
This is happening 10-12 June 2011.

From what I've read, a ticket into one gets you into the other.

I don't have any knowledge of what the Tactical Gear Expo is but looks like we will find out.

Martin, I KNOW you are delusional.... and psychotic... and can drink me under the table in less than 5 minutes.

I buy Harsey beer for the knife discounts.... doesn't work out well for me, but one of these days he'll break down... since there are no discounts, I'm now wondering why I buy him beer... :D

Well... this year I won't be there my friends. My son is about to be delivered (in April most probably) and I can't leave my wife at home alone with this small guy. So... no Blade'11 for me. But the reason is quite awesome, isn't it? :)

Just to torture DDD.........................



the handles have to be tumbled, the blade surface ground


but we (Les George and I) will have at least two at the show



















but DDD ain't getting one of them


:D




Just to give a little background on the folder. Les and I designed it, then Les cut out the parts. I hand textured the g10 slabs and ground the blades

Les will tumble them and assemble

Bill lost his voice, everyone got drunk in the pit. Spartan sold almost all their knives. The Les George/Ken Brock (or Pocket Badger) was a hit. That's all I got....




The people who know how to report on the action are all going fishing so don't expect to hear anything for a few days.

Ken would have used a magenta crayon....:D form the Crayola 64 color box with sharpener he gets for Christmas every year.

Therefore this picture was faked.... I will have to confiscate those knives as evidence in this highly dubious internet con game....
