Here are eight knife shows to attend throughout the United States in November 2019.
There's nothing quite like meeting the makers behind the knives that collectors love. Even if you don't buy a new favorite blade (though it's hard to resist!), you'll learn a lot about knifemaking, gain a new appreciation for the craft and handle knives worth tens of thousands of dollars without spending tens of thousands of dollars.
What's better than that?
