The many custom makers at the show will be displaying and selling a mind-boggling array of edged tools: from custom made kitchen carving sets to hunting knives, from fishing knives to folding knives - from the most mundane of cutting tools to the most exquisite pieces of edged art.
The 13th Annual Canadian Knifemakers Guild Show & Sale takes place Saturday, March 17th and Sunday, March 18th at the Four Points Sheraton Hotel (formerly Day's Inn), 6257 Airport Road in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. The hotel, about 15 minutes from downtown Toronto, is actually located across from Terminal 3 of the Toronto Airport and is accessible by all major traffic routes.

Custom knifemakers attending this year will include renowned tactical knife maker Greg Lightfoot from Alberta, popular Kirby Lambert from Saskatchewan, well-known Brian Tighe from Ontario, and the legendary art-knife maker, Wolfgang Loerchner - plus many, many others.
The mandate of the Canadian Knifemakers Guild is to increase public awareness of knifemakers, as skilled and versatile craftspeople producing high quality implements and works of art.
The Guild also provides a forum for the exchange of techniques and ideas between all custom knife makers so that, in a sharing atmosphere, all may grow to their full potential. The Guild has created a uniform code of ethics and standards so that a buyer can deal with members on a level field. The buyer will know that the overall quality of workmanship will be predictable.
