    Hey gang! I haven’t been posting on the forum lately, but I have been visiting the site regularly. Personal life and work life are just keeping me really busy right now. But…

    I wanted to update everyone on the knifemakers coming to the Metal Art Show and Sale in Wetaskiwin, Alberta this September. Here’s the list so far:

    Clare Broeksma
    Irv Brunas
    Bob Campenot
    Jim Clow
    Darby Grady
    Wayne Hamilton
    Roger Hatt
    Jay Kemble
    Gerry Kievit
    Jason Leclair
    Vern Lynes
    Allen Neal
    Susan Neal
    Matt Rehman
    Bob Robson
    Ed Storch
    Larry Strandquist
    Tim Vanderwekken
    Jay West

    There are also several additional knifemakers who are still “maybes”, but are trying hard to get here. As well, a whole bunch of knifemakers who aren’t displaying will be dropping by just to talk shop or reacquaint themselves with old friends.

    The Metal Art Show and Sale is scheduled for the weekend of September 16 and 17 at the Reynolds-Alberta Museum.

    As far as I can tell, this is one of the largest gatherings (if not THE largest gathering) of custom knifemakers in Alberta. The talent is varied and stellar and the number and variety of knives being displayed and sold is truly amazing!

    As a side note, the Western Canada Knife Association (WCKA) will be holding an informal supper meeting after the show on Saturday and they’re always looking for new members. The WCKA will also have a table at the Metal Art Show and Sale.

    Mark it in your calendars – September 16 and 17 at the Reynolds-Alberta Museum in Wetaskiwin, Alberta.

    By the way, if you’re a knifemaker and want to set up a display at the show, give me a shout. I've still got tables available and you can never have too many knifemakers!

    Hey everyone! Final update....

    Once again, we have a stellar cast of custom knife makers who are going to be displaying and selling their knives at the Metal Art Show and Sale in just a week and a half!

    The Metal Art Show and Sale is at the Reynolds-Alberta Museum in Wetaskiwin, Alberta (40 minute drive south of Edmonton) on the weekend of September 16 and 17, 2017.

    Here are the knife makers in alphabetical order:

    Timothy Artymko
    Clare Broeksma
    Irv Brunas
    Robert Campenot
    Jim Clow
    Darby Grady
    Wayne Hamilton
    Roger Hatt
    Cal Heinrich
    Jay Kemble
    Gerry Kievit
    Edward Kusnetsov
    Jason Leclair
    Vern Lynes
    Allen Neil
    Susan Neil
    Matthew Rehman
    Ed Storch
    Larry Strandquist
    Tim Vanderwekken
    Jay West

    This is now Alberta’s largest gathering of custom knife makers and the number and quality and styles of knives on display is going to be remarkable! I know it’s at the same time as hunting season, but you’re really not going to want to miss out on this one.

    Oh, and there also metal engravers, sculptors, jewelry makers, blacksmith artists, miniature mechanized model makers, and a whole lot more.

    I’ll have a name tag on. Come and say hi if you make it out!
