Where was 2018 Blade Show West?
OREGON CONVENTION CENTER
777 NE MARTIN LUTHER KING JR BLVD,
PORTLAND, OR 97232
BLADE Show headed out West to the “Knife Capital of the USA” Portland, Oregon! Attendees were able to explore seemingly-endless aisles of rare, unique and custom blades from across the globe, all from renowned knife makers. In addition to the hard-to-find blades, you’ll have the chance to stock up on one-of-a-kind finds, accessories and more.
BLADE Show West offered every type of blade you can imagine, from everyday carry and gear, to specialty hunting knives to intricately crafted collector’s pieces.
Why Out West?
After a lot of research our BLADE Show team has discovered that there are more Oregon knife companies, in the Portland area, than in any other state in the Union. It’s a thriving industry, with manufacturers employing thousands of workers alongside smaller outfits that employ only a few. Put it all together and you’ve got the knife capital of the USA! There is NO SALES TAX in the city of Portland so please keep that in mind when purchasing your knives/gear.
