John White, NOT John Martin, Won BLADE Show Best Bowie


In my haste to get the winners of the 2011 BLADE Show custom knife competition on our Web site, I entered the wrong name for the winner of Best Bowie. The correct winner is ABS master smith John White, not John Martin. I inadvertently put John Martin instead of John White. The fact that RJ Martin won Best Fighter and was listed right after John White on the list in the story must’ve bumfuzzled me.


My apologies to John White, who has won many custom awards at the BLADE Show over the years and is one of the leading bladesmiths in our industry today. Sorry about that, John!


Oh–and the original story listing the winners has been amended to include John White.
