Knife Museum fundraiser declared a success


Knoxville paper covers knife museum fundraiser

As a publisher of electronic knife collector news, I love it when the traditional print media covers happenings in our knife world. You know, when a newspaper prints a story about a collector trend, an event or even a significant aspect of our hobby.

This morning, as I was writing/struggling in an in-depth CNJ article on Knife Condition Grades, an email pops in my Inbox alerting me about new knife news. I stopped immediately, clicked though and found a great story in the Knoxville News Sentinel about the National Knife Museum fundraiser held weekend before last.

The event was co-sponsored by Smoky Mountain Knife Works, W. R. Case & Sons Cutlery Company and the National Knife Museum in Sevierville, Tenn.

The point of the story is over $4000 was raised for the Knife Museum. While the museum is a sister organization to the National Knife Collectors Association, it is a totally separate entity and survives from donations and exhibitor fees.

As an aside, yours truly did go to this event but was too busy buying knives to cover the event 🙂 Had my collector hat on that day. Well, what can I say……other than- I had success there too.

A Thanksgiving Treat- More knives than you can shake a stick at

nkcalogoWant to take a trip without having to leave the farm? Better yet, how about getting to tour the National Knife Museum on this beautiful Thanksgiving Day?

Well, that is just what I had in mind for you today. If you haven’t been, then get ready. If you have, then unless you had your iPod playing, you haven’t been on this tour.

I think this sums it up fairly well- A fast paced highlight tour of the National Knife Collectors Association’s National Knife Museum in Sevierville, Tennessee. Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving!
