Blade Show Texas Rides Out Earlier This Year

SHOT Show is receding into the mists of time, but that’s okay, because we’ve got another show on the horizon this weekend: Blade Show Texas.

Actually, Blade Show Texas is opening its doors almost a month earlier this year; 2023’s show didn’t kick off until St. Patrick’s Day in March. It’s still at the same location as last year in Fort Worth, and still has the small but mighty cross-section of the industry showing up.

Of course, you’ve got many of the production companies you expect: Spyderco will be there, as will CRKT, KA-BAR, even Fox and LionSteel. The We Knife Co. family of brands (We, Civivi, and Sencut) will be there, and are in fact sponsors for the show. Relative production newcomers Ocaso Knives and RoseCraft Blades will be there too. Notably absent is Benchmade, but perhaps the company is keeping its cards close to the chest for later reveals at the original Blade Show in June?

Smaller show are a great opportunity for custom makers in particular, and there are plenty of A list craftsmen in attendance. Allen Elishewitz, Jared Oeser, and Texas native Jose Pena will be there alongside many of their peers. These guys are sure to have some cool stuff on their tables to either gawk at or, if you’re lucky enough, add to your collection.

Blade Show Texas, which takes place at the Fort Worth Convention Center opens today, Friday February 23rd, at 10:30am Central time (unless you have the early bird ticket), and runs till 6:00pm. Saturday it is open to all from 10:00am to 6:00pm. We’ll be reporting on any cool new stuff that turns up there, so check back with us next week for that!
