    Will there be custom Kitchen knives? Yes, there certainly will...but not many.
    Should you go? YES!! Of course you should !!! Knives!!!

    Some of the guys I'm positive will have Kitchen knives:
    SHOSUI TAKEDA
    KEVIN CROSS
    MICHAEL ZIEBA


    Will there be others? Most definitely! Just because someone makes high-end folders doesn't mean they won't have other styles and such.
    There will also be many Dealers who carry knives of makers from around the world , many who carry Kitchen knives...

    It's true that many tables will have knives that cross from User to Art categories, but don't let that stop you from going.
    Instead, let that be the reason to go! It will be an eye opening experience to attend a show such as this.

    When you go to the link I provided, go to Exhibitor List, then click on the names to get a representative picture of that makers knives.

    If anyone has any questions about it, please just post a question or PM me.
    I will be going on both Fri and Sat, so I'll be there to take you around and make sure you have fun.

    I've been to this show with Jim and I can tell you that we had a fun time.
    There's also a couple of good Restaurants there as well should you get hungry.
