Oregon Knife Collectors Association

Oregon Knife Show Display Award Knives 2018

  • The display award knives are special awards given for the best displays at the Oregon Knife Show. The blade blanks were made from a pattern by Gene Martin. The theme is the Kukri knife. This pattern was decided on as something different to try and indeed it is.

    The steel used is 1095. Gene Martin is orchestrating this event and oversaw the laser cutting of the blanks. http://www.customknife.com/

    The displays at the April 2018 Show are museum quality displays and deserve the finest of awards for their efforts.

    It is planned to judge the award knives that are being donated to this event.
