Perhaps you've seen them on the TV show "Forged in Fire." Now, come meet them and admire their craftsmanship.

The Montana Knifemakers Association 27th annual Custom Knife Show and Sale is  Saturday and Sunday, May 13-14, at the Missoula Fairgrounds Home and Arts Building. There is no admission charge to attend.

The Montana Knifemakers Association was started in 1994. They are a non-profit educational organization, promoting the art of knifemaking through seminars, shows, educational events and other ventures. That also includes members who have taken the time to teach high school seniors working on senior projects.

Montana Knifemakers Association members are custom knifemakers dedicated to "perfecting their craft and providing their customers with quality products." This should give you an idea of the high quality workmanship you will see at their show and sale.

In addition to custom-made knives of all types for food preparation, hunting, fishing and more, crafted by local and national makers, knifemaking materials and supplies will be available as well.

Whether or not you are in the market for new custom knives, you're sure to be impressed with the craftsmanship that you will see. It sounds like these folks are pretty dedicated to the art.

Show and sale hours are from 9:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. on Saturday and 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Sunday. And representatives will be on hand to answer any questions you may have about membership in the Montana Knifemakers Association, and other events they regularly put on.
