Upcoming Atlanta Blade Show Questions.

Post by Peiper »

I have never been to a blade show before. Does anyone have any shopping advice? Do all vendors take credit/debit cards or do we need to take cash?
Are most of the good items sold after Friday? Do vendors negotiate prices? What are some things to look out for before buying? Any input would be appreciated. Thanks, P.

Cash is king. Some people take credit. There are ATMs there, too.
It's usually worth staying for the whole show. It will take you 3 days to cover the show.

Thanks, Bill. Will you be there? Can I drop off an "M Italy" switchblade for you to repair?

What's the pricing like at the Blade Show. It must be expensive to have a table there. I would expect no bargains.

I have no idea about the price of a table at the Atlanta show, haven't been there in about 8 years, and have bought a dozen or so knives there over the years at what I considered to be fair prices.

I believe Walt at Latama.net might have a table to rent.
