From what I hear this is one of the best, if not the best, show for balisongs... anyone come back from Eugene with any goodies or news? Wish I could've gone!

Didn't Chuck have an exhibition/demonstration there or something?

Zen.., Chuck couldn't do his usual demo because of a family tragedy.., but the demonstration was done anyway. Chuck will be back next year.., and hopefully Clay also...

I didn't get to go this year either.....arrrrgh.., hate to miss that show.

Felix.., it is one of the Best..., honest! You have to come one of these years. This is the first year in a while I've missed it, but it is #1 in my book.., and I've been to them all.

Eugene is also just a neat town to be in, but I guess I'm a little prejudiced because it's a College Town...., and I just like the atmosphere....

It truly is one of the great knife shows FOR SURE....

Like Matt said, not too many bali's this year. My son wanted a BM43 spring latch, not to be found, so ordered one when we got home. Chuck could not make it, but Greg (Gunnertwo) and his son Kevin (Gunnerone) did a fine job running the bali demo. Greg had some nice pieces on display and Kevin did some nice flipping.
There are some pics up in the Main Lobby forum over on USN. No bali's this time, but did come home with some nice old schrade push buttons. Add a little history to the collection.
