1st Annual Seattle International Knife Show

Saturday April 26th & Sunday April 27th, 2014
Heathman Hotel, 220 Kirkland Ave, Kirkland, WA 98033 USA

We are very excited to announce BladeGallery's first Seattle International Knife Show. This juried show is scheduled for the last weekend in April at the four star Heathman Hotel in downtown Kirkland (just across Lake Washington from Seattle). We are committed to making this among the most prestigious boutique knife shows in the country. We anticipate having between 50 and 60 custom knifemakers from around the world and a select group of suppliers.

Open to the public
Friday April 25th -- Pre-funk at the Forge, 1pm - 6pm*
Saturday April 26th -- noon - 6pm
Sunday April 27th -- 11am - 6pm

* Pre-funk at the Forge is being hosted by Journeyman Smith David Lisch at his forge:

Dragon Fly Forge
3600 E Marginal Way South
Studios #3 & #4
Seattle WA 98134

Friday's event is a rare opportunity to hang out and see a working bladesmith's/blacksmith's shop. David will have the forges going in Studio 4 Knifemaking School so makers can show their skills and collectors can try their hand or just watch if they like. There will be forging and knifemaking demos in Studio 3. This is a part of this event not to miss!

Early entrance at 11am on Saturday
for VIP ticket holders

VIP Reception (appetizers and drinks): 6:30pm - 9pm Saturday
