Knife Expo 2016
Southern California Blades Knife Collectors Club was founded in 1979 by Lowell Shelhart and five of his friends, in his living room. Thirty-five years later, we have over 200 members world wide. Members enjoy the fellowship of other knife collectors and makers, receive The Blade Bulletin (newsletter), and are eligible to purchase the annual Southern California Blades Club Knife.
If you are interested in collecting, buying, selling or making knives, or in Club Knives, or the Annual Knife Expo, become a member of Southern California Blades, California's Original Knife Club.
Meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month in Lakewood, California, at the Taper Hall at Monte Verde Park. Meetings open with a social/display hour at 7pm and a business meeting/presentation time at 8pm, concluding at 9pm sharp. During the social hour, members may present a table display, and many meetings include a speaker during the second hour.
In addition to our monthly meetings, Southern California Blades also presents Knife Expo, Southern California's oldest and finest Knife Show. Our 31st annual KnifeExpo will be held March 12 & 13, 2016, at the Pasadena Convention Center, in beautiful downtown Pasadena, California. SC Blades members in good standing (2016 dues paid by Feb. 12, 2016) receive free admission to the show, and all exhibitors at Knife Expo are Southern California Blades members.
