You should! I've never been to either, but I plan to attend the Blade Show ATL next year for the first time. The west show is a short drive for me so that'll be nice.

Yup, probably the best blade show on the left side of the country... some real eye candy and great vendors to talk to ....
I didn't realize it was this weekend or I would make plans to go. If my plans fall apart this weekend maybe I can squeeze it in....

Actually, after jogging my old man brain for a bit, I realized we were talking about the Blade show at the Convention Center in Portland and not the OKCA show in Eugene in the spring.

Even though the Blade Show is a great show, I was disappointed in the quality of some of the makers there last year. Lots of variety at the show, though and worth the time and entry fee to attend...

However, the Eugene OKCA show is head and shoulders above the Blade Show in quality of knives and other wares and if I remember correctly, prices seemed to be a bit more reasonable on comparable pieces, supplies, and other items.... definitely my preferred show and worth the 2 1/2 hour drive down there...

I think it is April 19,20 2020 next show....

Yea the OKCA show is indeed very good. I typically go every year. I'm in a Eugene club with a bunch of guys who have tables at it. Hoping to have my own table next year.

I have had a table at OKCA April show each year for 20+ years. Some years I don't have much on the table though!
