cover story

An inch long closed, the spectacular 40-blade miniature cover knife by Japan’s Isao Ohbuchi won the Yvon Vachon Best Miniature Knife Award in the custom knife judging competition of BLADE Show 2019. Along with all the other knives in the competition (page 24) except Gabe Mabry’s winner of the Best Kitchen Knife Award judged by Ethan Becker, a select panel of three custom knife authorities judged Ohbuchi’s award winner. Including Becker, all three judges were chosen by the BLADE® staff. Ohbuchi calls his tiny folder a “sportsman’s knife” and stated it is inspired by the legendary Joseph Rodgers & Sons of Sheffi eld, England, which made fantastic folders and fixed blades in the 19th century.

It was the mid-1960s and the paper included the syndicated columns of Los Angeles Times sportswriter Jim Murray, whose ability to cover sports with a non-stop delivery of wisecracks and wisdom captivated my 13-year-old sensibilities. While Watergate would draw many of my generation to journalism, I was not one of them. I wanted to be a sportswriter. At one critical point in my writing, Dad advised me to get to the point and…

shifting winds of shanp

After all the tents pitched by those waiting hours if not days to get in had been removed, scads of knives bought and sold, BLADE University classes and free demos concluded, awards presented, exhibits dismantled and the record crowd of over 11,000 dispersed, the question remained: What set BLADE Show 2019 apart from past renditions of the world’s biggest, most momentous knife happening? Show veteran Mike Crenshaw cited the continued increase in international knife companies and a surge in younger knife buyers. “The market has been getting younger due to the very strong influence of the Internet and social media, so there’s an obvious shift,” he observed. “There were a lot of people who had never heard of the BLADE Show before until social media and Internet ‘buzz’ made them aware.…

warden, phillips take world titles

Nicole Warden won an unprecedented fourth straight title in the women’s division and Donavon Phillips won his first-ever men’s division crown in the 17th Annual BLADE Show World Championship Cutting Competition. Conducted by BladeSports International, the competition was moved inside due to inclement weather in the Galleria Specialty Shops area of the Cobb Galleria Centre. It was the first time the event was held indoors. Robin Berry and Jonni Jo Carothers placed second and third behind Warden in the women’s division, respectively, and the respective second- and third-place finishers in the men’s division were Dan Keffeler and Ben Propst. Other placers in the women’s division in order were Chandee Smith and Shanna Kemp, and the balance of the finishers in the men’s division in order were James Clifton, David Moore, Christopher Berry,…
