If you pay a visit to Booth #837 make sure no one catches you checking yourself out in the mirror polish on the Fallout 2.0. The knife is the latest Reate collaboration with Barrett Custom Knives. It could be yours for $435.

Officer Hakes, Recipient of the 2016 Freedom’s Point Award

Knife Rights kicks off Blade Show 2016 by doling out a couple awards. The Freedom’s Point Award was given to Police Officer Travis C. Hakes for helping repeal Wisconsin’s switchblade ban. The Freedom’s Guardian Award was given to Hogue for its continued support of the Knife Rights cause.

What did Benchmade bring to Blade Show 2016? The same 2016 line-up they brought to SHOT Show in January… AND this new Gold Class 810-161 with a stunning carbon fiber laminate blade to match the carbon fiber handle. Only 30 of these very limited edition blades will be produced. Be sure to get an eyeful at Booth #1.


Steel Will Knives unveiled five new polished flipper prototypes in a variety of handle materials, all still unnamed. The company built its reputation with large outdoors fixed blades and the new flippers signal a growing emphasis on the folder/EDC market. If you’re in the neighborhood stop by Booth #313 – they are well worth checking out.

At Table #25I Tashi Bharucha brings the style and Custom Knife Factory brings the raw manufacturing power for this high-end collaboration. The appropriately-named Muscle is 8.3 oz. of pure class. It is expected to ship mid-June.


Bring a big appetite to Dervish Knives‘ table. The spread they put out at #12U has something to satisfy all tastes.

iPhone releases have got nothing on the world’s largest custom knife show. This photo was posted at 7:30am this morning! Custom knife speculators are willing to trade a little sleep to get their hands on blades they can flip for some quick cash.
