    Our show is October 1 & 2 form 10 to 4PM both days.

    Payment is at the door and is $15 per-person or $25 for a two day pass. Cash only, no credit cards or checks.

    Parking is FREE for the day!!!!
    Our new permanent home is the:
    Embassy Suites of Garden Grove\Anaheim
     11767 Harbor Boulevard
    Garden Grove, Ca. 92840

    Here is some update info.

    1) Remember if you come early you can have breakfast at the Embassy Suites for $10, just tell them you are with the show. Join the knife makers for breakfast!

    2) The hotel is not using the other third of the ball room so we have some extra room.

    3) Remember to bring your post card you got in the mail. They all went out this week first class mail so everyone should have them by now if you are on the shows mailing list. Bring the card to the show, and it will go in a special drawing for the Thad Buchanan Chute Knife! Over a $900 value and a neat knife!

    4) Remember most makers signed the pledge that they will not sell anything until 10:10, so everyone has a chance to get to the maker they want to buy a knife from. Each maker will have a deck of cards so if two people want the same knife everyone has an equal chance. No advantage for the dealers in the room. Deliveries made at the show are excluded.

    5) We have additional door prize drawings, and knives donated by Ohta, Brous, Hartsfield jr, and Mel Nishiuchi. Joel Chamblin and a few others will also deliver a knife to the show to be donated. We will announce the the door prize drawings, and have a board out front with the winners names.

    6) We look forward to seeing everyone! Also please email me after the show and let me know what you think of the Embassy suites! A few bugs so far we have worked out and the second year is always easier!

    Thank you!
