You should have seen all the pocket knives last Saturday in Niles-Liberty Ohio. The Ohio Gun, Knife & Military Shows packed the house with vendors and
customers. They used the vacant Big Lots store in Liberty Ohio, in the Belmont Plaza. The next show at that location will be January 23 and 24, 2016, in case you missed this one. The address is 3495 Belmont Ave., Youngstown, Ohio 44505, next to Aldi’s. Most of the tables had rifles and hand guns, be we were there for the knives. There were more knife tables than we saw at our last regional knife show. We were impressed, even though most of the tables were for guns. Ohiogunshows.com is the place to go for more information on upcoming shows.
Here are some pictures of just a small percentage of the knife displays from last Saturday, December 19, 2015. If you are a knife lover, you should enjoy these. See you at the next knife & gun show! Tim Pike, my nephew usually goes with me.

When you order Custom Engraved Knives for your business, to give to your best employees or customers for Christmas, here are some tips. These tips will help ensure that you will be happy with your purchase.
You get what you pay for! You already knew that. Get a name brand, like Buck Knives, Boker, Kershaw, Gerber, Case, Kutmaster, or Leatherman.
Pick the best type of imprint. Laser engraving is the most permanent. It will never scratch off. Acid etching doesn’t go very deep, so it can wear off in time. So can color imprints, which are “painted” on. The best epoxy paints are used, and sometimes covered with a protective clear coat, but still, the imprint can be scratched off by your adjacent car keys in your pocket.
Choose a company that has the best service. Sometimes you can judge by the
quality of their web page. A neat, clean looking website that answers all your questions is good. It shows that the company is successful and cares about its customers.
Buy a quantity that is sufficient for your needs. If you need 1 or 2 more custom engraved knives later, after you received your order, you will pay more, or be subject to a “less than minimum” charge.
