International Custom Cutlery Exposition (ICCE) 2016
The American Bladesmith Society is proud to announce the first International Custom Cutlery Exposition on September 23-25, 2016 at the downtown Marriott Hotel in Kansas City, MO. The show will feature 80 tables for American Bladesmith Society bladesmiths and 80 tables for Knifemakers Guild makers. This will be an historic event featuring top knife makers from both organizations.
The American Bladesmith Society will be presenting knifemaking seminars as part of our mission of education for the preservation and promotion of the ancient craft of the forged blade. We are still in the early stages of planning and will provide more information later but mark the dates on your calendar now.
A schedule of symposiums will be added at a future date
