Blade Show proved to be another huge success, with massive crowds of eager knife and sword fans all weekend long. Nowhere else in the world can you experience everything the blade community has to offer; from supplies for makers to the most sought after collections the Blade Show is a must to attend. If you were not there this time we hope to see you next year, and to all of our friends that visit each year we thank you and cannot wait to spend our time together again!
2015 marks CAS’s 30th Anniversary and we have asked Hanwei to produce a very limited number of special Musashi-themed swords. We received the first of these swords just before the show and they have truly outdone themselves! For the first time ever the Musashi katana is available with an exceptional Forge-Folded blade of ASSAB K120C. Many more pictures and information is available here. These swords should be available towards the end of summer.
Konstantin Kulikov of Kizlyar Supreme was on hand to show off the new Zedd and Zorg EDC Flippers and their all new steel Tactical Echelon Trainers. Several Prototypes were also on display (see prototype section below) including some throwing knives designed by a famous Russian knife throwing expert and new outdoor models with stabilized walnut scales and nice leather sheaths.
Dominique Eleure, the owner of Citadel Knives and Swords, was showing off his unique blend of old-world and modern knives and swords. These exceptional need to be seen in person to truly appreciate their handmade quality. The Phobos Folder which we have just received was a hit, being a large outdoor folder with a unique back-lock and stout N690Co blade. The scales are hand sculpted Linen Micarta and offer a firm grip in any situation.
Last, but far from least we showed off some prototypes from a relatively new forge producing some exceptional swords, canes and art-crafts; Dragon King. All of the below are prototypes and as such not currently available. Look for more information on this exciting new maker soon!
