Knife Shows are Fun

Parker’s Knife Show Sevierville, Tennessee

In last week’s post, we concluded Knife Shows are the lifeblood of our hobby, and the longer we collect, the more enjoyment we receive from the people who like knives as much as we do. The knives are good too, but without other folks it wouldn’t be much fun- now would it?

Well as promised, I attended Parker’s Knife Show in Sevierville, Tennessee and captured the essence and characters of the show.

By “characters” here I’m not meaning that these people are “actors,” though they do play their parts, instead I mean they are “interesting and amusing individuals”- as in real characters!

If you have been around collecting for very long, you will know many of these folks, and will agree, boy are they characters. The knives are pretty cool too.

While at Parker’s Knife Show this past weekend, I had a chance to chat with Ryan Daniels, Sales Manager of Great Eastern Cutlery of Titusville, Pa. They produce high quality knives from vintage patterns and he takes a minute to share a few of their knives with us. 

Great Eastern specializes in collectible and premium pocket, hunting and kitchen knives. Their brands include Tidioute Cutlery, Northfield Un-X-LD and Great Eastern Cutlery.

Ryan invited us to come up and tour their factory in Titusville. When you are up in their area, give him a call and see their knives made first-hand.
