For anyone who has not made the trip to the AKA Show, I would highly encourage it if you have the opportunity. Most years I have been there it seems more like an art show than knife show. The work presnted there is just absolutle amazing!

For those interested, I've scanned the ad from Blade for the show which lists most of the numerous makers who will be present. There will be more who purchased tables after the ad went to print who will be present.
