    This happened to me too... Planned on spending about $500, ended up spending $500 a day. Of course that didn't include food or drinks which... Lets not go there!

    THIS! Also, don't be surprised if when flying home you get pulled out of the security line and asked if "This is your suitcase"... Just explain (nicely if you can!) you just came from Blade.

    I'm looking at going for my second time, gonna meet some friends and hopefully buy something I totally shouldn't just because I can. Living in Georgia has some perks after all, such as not having to fly home with a 6 foot sword, although that would be quite the story.

    Oh, I'll be there, hopefully before I leave my wallet in the trash can next to the door for safe keeping. Or I might leave it with some of the hand-made knife makers, since that's where I always ended up spending all of my money last time...

    I am only going for tomorrow. Is anyone interested in meeting up, flipping, or walking the floor?

    I'm kicking myself for having started using Instagram recently. I'm seeing nothing but amazing, exciting posts from all my favorite designers previewing some of the terrific knives they'll be showcasing at Blade this year.
    If everything worked out like it did last year, I'd be in Atlanta right now. BLARGH.

    :banghead:

    Take lots of pictures, everyone! And have an awesome, awesome time! :rollsmile:

    Oh shit! God, that really, really, really sucks. I bet a whole lot of people were pissed. (Ernie himself probably had steam coming from his ears). Back a few years ago, when I was first really getting into knives, I remember watching a whole lot of video footage of Emerson's Blade Show lotteries. They were so exciting to watch, heh.

    I did score a nice Hobo knife.......pre 1900 for sure. I need to research some more, but I am thrilled.
