2016 BADGER KNIFE CLUB ANNUAL KNIFE SHOW

- 0 Comment. in Uncategorized

The 2016 Badger Club Knife show is now history. I was one of the vendors at the annual 200 table show held at the Janesville Conference Center in the Holiday Inn Express. This show has been one of the premier knife shows for many years.
The show vendors consisted of many Wisconsin custom knife makers, out of state knife makers, purveyors, knife making suppliers. There was something for everybody. The show is very well organized, as they have been doing it for over 30 years. Business was brisk. The club puts on a silent auction of items donated by some of the vendors. There was a light dusting of snow Saturday morning. Things were buzzing in Janesville as Presidential candidate Donald Trump held a rally at the hotel just a few days before the show. Custom knife maker Les Voorhies won award for best custom folder.

RW Wilson follow up. RW was in an automobile accident and in the hospital. He was released today with bumps, bruises & 3 broken ribs

Enjoy the photos.
