    Looks interesting - 124 exhibitors!! That is about 104 more than at the recent knife show.
    I suspect it may take longer than an hour to peruse all wares.

    Thanks for posting some pics geoffchan. Did you pick up anything or find a particular brand/product that you will look further into?
    Were there many knife & flashlight companies present?

    not really, it was a quick look around, most of the things on display wasn't that interesting with and EDC perspective.

    only Leatherman was there but as a group of Aussie disposals.
