CNJ Audio Interview Series- Steve Shackleford, Editor of Blade Magazine

Having the opportunity to sit down with the key players in the Knife Industry is a highlight of my day and today’s show is no exception. 

Being able to hear their unique perspective on the goings-on is invaluable not only collectors, but anyone related to the Knife Industry.

Today’s Knife Show guest is Mr. Steve Shackleford. Steve is the Editor of Blade Magazine. He is also moderator of Blademag.com’s knife forum.

One of the fascinating aspects of this interview is Steve’s “Birds-eye view” of the entire Knife Industry- commenting on today’s trends, knife shows, the current oversupply of knives, the “survival of the fittest” mode of many American manufacturers today, and a glimpse of Blade in the future, and much more. 

As you may be aware, Blade Magazine is the most widely read knife magazine today. Each edition covers a wide variety of subjects of interest to knife enthusiasts. Blade also hosts Blade Knife Show in Atlanta and Blade Show West each year. 

Blade’s website- Blademag.com is a high priority for them and currently hosts the Blade TV Show, its forums, its blog and knife related articles

Grab you a cup of coffee and join us in this most interesting conversation.

  1. Got a follow-up note from Steve after the Interview aired. His off-the-top-of-his-head response to the question about market share of the different kinds of knives was low. He wanted us to know- factory knives represent as much as 95% of the knife market in terms of number sold and the revenue generated.
    Thanks for the update Steve!
    Scott
