TTT. If you're a knifemaker and have any inventory at all, we've still got tables available. If you're a "knife guy" and want to come by, we are having educational seminars both days at 2 p.m.
Choosing a Custom Knife. What do you need to know when choosing a custom knife? This talk will cover a basic overview of steel types, handle materials, grind and edge types, and basic fit and finish. Developing the theme "Form follows function," this seminar will get you started on the choices available to customers in the custom knife world.

Choosing the Perfect Knife Steel. Knife steels have come a long way since the days when the choice was as simple as "carbon or stainless." With all the letters and numbers associated with steel types these days, how do you choose the right one for your knife? This talk will cover the basic properties and composition of carbon and stainless steels, look into the various properties and trade-offs associated with each steel type, and give an overview of some of the more common steels in custom knifemaking.
