2017 OKCA Show April 8th & 9th

Postby orvet » Tue Mar 21, 2017 3:44 am

It is almost time for the 42nd annual Oregon Knife Collectors Association annual show! ::ds:: ::ds::
I know Phil (philco) and a number of other folks are making the journey across country out to the Emerald Empire (Lane County Oregon) for THE SHOW!

We would like to have a dinner on Saturday evening, (at a restaurant, which has yet to be determined), but anyone who is interested in attending the dinner please let me know so I can have an approximate headcount. Last year we went to a Mexican restaurant only to find out that closed the week before. As it ended up we had a lovely dinner but we got such a late start dinner wasn’t over till 10 PM. That meant my wife and I got home about 1 o’clock in the morning and we had to get up at 5 AM to drive back to the show for Sunday morning. This year I intend to well make reservations in advance!


This link is to the OKCA website home page: http://www.oregonknifeclub.org/index.html

There are lots of helpful links there that will make your stay in Eugene more enjoyable.
The weather is unpredictable especially in April. We might have 80° and sunshine or 45° and rain. Expect the unexpected weather-wise, it is Oregon after all!

Oh yes, come expecting to see lots of knives and bring an empty suitcase so you can take some home!


If you are planning on joining us for dinner on Saturday evening please PM me, orvet, with the number of people in your party.

See you in Eugene!

I am really looking forward to this show. It will be my first ever visit to Oregon and obviously my first time at this show. I'm counting down the days. I'll be at the show on Saturday the 8th.
I hope to get to meet several other AAPK members there. Who else is going ?

Our knives are more than metal and bone;
They're about who we are and the people we've known.

This will be my first knife show and you can bet I'm looking forward to it. I'll be there Friday. I'll be bring about a dozen Imperial knife rolls. They were given to a friend after Canal Street Cutlery shut down. If you're a Schrade collector and are going to be at the show, let me know and I'll try and get one of these to you.
