Bladestock 2019

Being April 25st, only 8 weeks before Bladestock 2019 will be a fact. Bladestock is an awesome European midsummer gathering in The Netherlands in the middle of the woods. Lots of visitors who are into knives (collectors, bushcrafters, survivalists, preppers and so on) are coming to this weekend event to talk, feel, buy, sell, trade knives. Both visitors & exhibitors can camp on the exhibition area. But if you like more luxury, you can always chose one of the hotels in the nearby city of Nunspeet. More info

Exhibitors from several countries attend. Knifemakers, Retailers, Suppliers and all Knife & Gear related sellers and craftsmen will show their products.

In 2018 all volunteers and members of the organisation got a free laser engraved Civivi folding knife.

Production knife: Cheborkov Cobra

I purchased this one during the exhibition in Schaafheim Germany on April 14th 2019. I have a kind of hate-love affair with Cheburkov, a Russian knifecompany. They make really awesome, high end knives. I lik’m very much. But fit & finish is not always what you my expect from a high end >$600 knife. So when you have the possibility just hand pick one.

The Cobra is available in varieties regarding steel: M390 and Vanadis. I chose one with Vanadis. Is is superlight with CF frame with titanium linerlock. I got it from German retailer Tools for Gents.
