2nd Seattle International Knife Show

Friday April 24th - Prefunk @ Dragon Fly Forge, Seattle, WA
Saturday April 25th & Sunday April 26th, 2015
Hilton Hotel, Bellevue, WA

We are very excited to announce BladeGallery's second Seattle International Knife Show. Our 2014 show was a tremendous amount of fun! This juried show is scheduled for the last weekend in April at the three star Hilton Hotel in Bellevue, WA (just across Lake Washington from Seattle). We are committed to making this among the most prestigious boutique knife shows in the country. For our second show, we again anticipate having between 50 and 60 custom knifemakers from around the world and a select group of suppliers.

Open to the public
Friday April 24th -- Pre-funk at the Forge, 1pm - 6pm*
Saturday April 25th -- noon - 6pm (VIP admission at 11am)
Sunday April 26th -- 10am - 2pm

* 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!

The 2014 show was a great opportunity for makers and collectors to meet (and even some makers that hadn't met each other before!)

The show is a great opportunity to meet with makers and get to know each other socially.
