Blade Show 2016 is upon us, and RECOIL Magazine is upon them. It. Them. The show. Whatever.

If you've never been to Blade, as it's mostly commonly called, you're missing something. It's a massive gathering of knife manufacturers from across the sharp and stabby spectrum; production knives to custom, fixed and folder alike. Held every year at the Cobb Galleria in Atlanta (and in “the Pit” nearby), Blade is a who's who in the world of edge. If you have a minute, take a look at #bladeshow2016 on Instagram for an idea of how and what will be there. With 300 booths and nearly 700 tables, you ought to be able to find something you like. There will be more than knives — there will be handmade items of every description, badass man jewelry and other wearables, hell there may be a Lucky Fatman Talisman wandering about — there will definitely be a few people who've earned one on the floor.

As an example, that image you see above — that's Foxhanx, Rustick Knives, RMJ Tactical, Steel Flame, JBS Bladeworks, Eric Luther Knives, Darrel Ralph Designs, Hinderer Knives and BladeHQ. There's lots more where that came from.
