Knife Makers' Show


The Knife Makers' Show was the centrepiece of the Knife Days at Deutsches Klingenmuseum. It had been developed in cooperation with the German Knife Makers' Guild (Deutsche Messermacher Gilde) and has been a magnet for outstanding knife makers, knife collectors, and the interested public since the year 2000. Since its founding, the Knife Makers' Show has established a reputation as one of Europe's foremost shows for handmade knives.

We were again looking forward to welcome exhibitors and visitors from many countries to the show's next installment in 2018. Besides fine blades, it offered knife related materials and literature. An exciting program of activities was held in the museum's courtyard. Furthermore, the award ceremony of the Deutsches Klingenmuseum Knife Award 2018 was held on the show's first day (Saturday, 12. MAY, 19:30).

The Knife Makers' Show is dedicated to its long tradition and its high standard of quality. Tables will be assigned only by application, excellent craftsmanship is a necessary prerequisite.
