    Oregon Knife show, better late than never

    Its been two weeks since I did the Oregon Show. Skipped doing it last year but still went on Saturday but it was not the same as doing the show. Decided to do the show this year and it turns out I had my best Oregon Knife Show ever.

    This is old news to some:

    A month before the OKCA Show in the club news letter they were asking table holders to enter one of there special bowies into a special bowie knife display that the show was putting on. I decided to enter one I had made in the fall of 2009. It was an order for a customer. I told the customer if it was not what he wanted not to feel obligated to purchasing it. He told me he just wanted a big bowie knife along the lines of a short sword and that was what I made. Anyway he decided he did not want it so I just kept it. I liked it so much that it stayed in my bowie knife short sword collection ever since except for this past weekend. I had no idea these display knives were being judged until Chuck Richards told me I had a knife that won an award. Here's the knife and the award. Only bad thing is I no longer have my bowie knife short sword collection.
