Helsinki Knife Show

Pictured are post card announcements for the Helsinki Knife Show held each January since 2010.The Helsinki Knife Show is an international custom knife sales-exhibition organized by the Scandinavian Knifemaker’s Guild and attracted over 50 exhibitors in 2011. The show for 2014 will be held in the Carl-Gustaf cabinet of the Hotel Marski 3rd and 4th of January 2014. These cards give you an idea of the variety and high quality of the work that is exhibited.

I am posting this because there is a chance to see some very fine work at the gallery at http://www.helsinkiknifeshow.com/ and also on their Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/pages/Helsinki-Knife-Show/137466299619315.

If I ever had the chance to travel to Finland it would to see this show and meet the puukkoseppä there. A special thank you to Pekka Tuominen for the post cards.
