If you are attending the Blade Show, Les will be teaching two classes for Blade University. This will be his 33rd Blade Show and it is always a great time. He hopes to see and meet some of you there.
Forged Fixed Blades; Heir Apparent to Tactical Folders
Thursday 12:30 pm – 2 pm Room 104
While this class is geared towards knife makers, there will be plenty of good information for collectors.
Attending this course could help knife makers earn thousands of dollars over their career. How? He will teach you how to identify your position in the market. This will allow you to price your knives accordingly. That is, unless you are happy taking knives home after every show? He will also discuss trends and styles you should consider to help your sales. Hope to see you there.
Collecting Custom Knives
Saturday 9:45 am – 10:45 am Room 109
This course will cover: How to identify good makers. How to get the best bang for your buck. How to determine a fair price for a custom knife. (This is important as most makers guess or ask another makers what their knives should sell for. Neither method benefits you.) Additionally, we will discuss the basics of custom knife collecting, potential investment opportunities, working with makers and dealers, deposits, etc.
If you would like to attend any Blade University classes and have not pre-registered already, you may pay for the classes at the show. $25 If you have already pre-registered, thank you!
