This Knoxville show is a homecoming for us--we attended some great shows at this hotel back when it was the Hyatt-Regency, and Knoxville was home to several Blade Shows when we were producing that show. The Marriott is next door to the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame, and convenient to the National Knife Museum, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It is a convenient location with a 1 day drive of over 60% of the nation's population.
Handmade section. Door prizes."

Combining ALL aspects of the family of knives, ranging from our brother knife enthusiasts of our own interest and specialty to that distant cousin whose knife interests we only get to browse on rare occasions.
Our goal at SOS is not to merely sell tables. A good show should be an event—and we request your attendance and to help create just such a celebration-- something unique in the world of knives—a show at which everyone is welcome to celebrate the wonder and joy of knives.
To that end we are restricting the number of tables in certain sections to insure we have a fair balance of all knife categories: handmade, stock removal, vintage, military, collections, etc. Yes, we know this is alien to some show promoters who only want to fill up the room with “their” kind of people and forget about the public—and indirectly forget about promoting the knife experience to newcomers as well. Together we will take the knife show experience to a new level.
