Blade Show 2008
« on: May 05, 2008, 03:00:36 AM »
I just realized the Blade Show is scheduled for later this month. May 30 thru June 1 in Atlanta Georgia.

Wish I were lucky enough to be going. Is anyone else here planning to attend?

Let's say I'm planning to try to attend. It's only a two hour drive and I have free lodging but I just couldn't make it last year. I do have some money saved so that may be a good impetus for me to actually go this year.

Reading (and seeing) a review of Blade from the perspective of a multitool enthusiast would be awesome :drool:

Since I'll be unemployed and in school I'm fairly certain I'll be able to go to all three days. I'm going to try to get an assistant to take pictures and wander around to try to capture it all but there aren't any long-haired Canadians down here so I may have to go solo. ( ;))

I'm looking over the exhibition list, why no Victorinox or Wenger?

How about balding Michiganders? Got any of those?  :D

Hmmm, good question. I'm not familiar with Blade. Are they usually there?

Probably not anymore, they've all melted from the heat.  :P

I do have a slightly disgruntled best friend to accompany me but it's going to take some money to convince her to take pictures of a bunch of dorky dudes holding pocket knives and multitools.

I can't find the list for last year but I think Leatherman didn't go but Victorinox did. Probably just one of those things were scheduling doesn't line up. Other than that it looks good; CRKT, SOG, Gerber, Leatherman, and a bunch of knife companies I've been wanting to see and SureFire to top it all off. Dangit, now I'm excited about it and there's still 26 days to go.

As a trade show veteran, I believe you have exactly 100% more experience than me, any advice on what to bring?

If its anything like the Shot Show, the most critical thing of all is: comfortable shoes.  :P  (those convention halls are mind-bogglingly huge)

I'm only a little over 2 hrs from Atlanta. Wish I could meet you there Spoon but I can never get away from work.

I am heading that way too hopefull, Atlanta is a 5-6 hour ride from here and Grant is going to hook me up with what I need to get it. Between the both of us we should be able to cover things pretty good.
