Big Gun Show , No Vintage Knives?

Post by knifegnome » Sat Sep 19, 2020 5:20 pm

Just got back from a big gun show here in Bradenton FL, about 175-200 tables .It was the most disapointing gun show (for vintage knives) I have ever been to.The first table has 4 WWII bayonets , the rest of the tables ,not a single vintage knife anywhere , no pre WWII knives , no Case 70's 80's 90's ,no Schrade Walden or USA .Nothing but brand new knives. Usually at this show there are least a few (5-6) tables with some vintage knives.Nothing NaDa .I hope this is not a trend going foward , anybody else having gun shows in your area ? Just had to vent a little.

There is more antique knives at Tulsa than any other show. You do have to look for them because they are scattered across 4200 tables.
