I plan to be there Friday afternoon and all day Saturday. I'll stop by and say hi to you guys.
My wife and I are headed there right after work tomorrow. Should be at the hotel sometime around midnight give or take. We’ll gain an hour so hopefully it’ll be sooner than that.More than likely I should get there by 1000 hrs or so its about three hours. My son and I are going with a friend.
Yep. That’s why the title of the thread is Bladeshow 2021. You must have read it wrong.Unfortunately, as of late, Blade Show 2020 won't occur because of concerns encompassing the COVID-19 pandemic. The show, which is one of the biggest in the blade world, was initially delayed to later in the year yet has since been totally dropped.
That press/rolling mill did look very nice I sent him a message a while back and never heard anything back about them. Did he mention anything on the price point?I had a lot of fun. It is way too much to try and do in one day though. I spent too much money for sure but I enjoyed it. There was a forge press/roller mill/twister combo machine there that was just awesome. More handle material than you can look at and all the major steel suppliers were there not to mention leather. You could supply your whole shop for the year and not pay shipping. We sat down at a random table to eat lunch and all of the sudden I realized I was eating lunch with Aldo Bruno. He was a nice guy, just like talking to a friend. One thing the show taught me for sure was that there are a lot of makers who’s work is better than mine...but not all of them. That was a little reassuring but emphasized the need to push my boundaries. I will be back next year for sure.

I felt kind of weird Taking pictures of others’ work. I have been to blacksmith festivals where pictures are frowned upon and some people get down right rude about it. I was not sure how it would be received at blade. I would have liked to take some pictures though.I'd definitely like to see some pix! I'll get there someday!
