    It was a huge success. The hall is far too small for the event imo.

    Dave Budd and Cod12ie were in between Gudy Van Poppel and Kevin Wilkins, but only the wood is seen on the pics...

    Looks like a really good show with demonstrations as well as all the static displays.

    I wish i had more good pictures, but it was difficult to take pictures, it was so busy, people kept bumping into me.. so there are a lot of blurry pics

    I didn't buy a single knife.
    I only got 4 blades, 1 kit, 7 forged but not yet quenched blades, wood, kydex, mosaic pin, firesteel, buffalo rings.
    Not a single thing from my needed list was there... and it was quite long. So on the hunt again.

    I thought the blurring was due to exitement.

    What a great looking show,thank you for the pictures.

    I wonder if SWMBO would fancy a week in Belgium next year, round about this time of year.
