Report - Knives Exhibition and Knives.pl Group Rally 2017

Date: October 21, 2017
Place: Palace of Culture and Science, Warsaw
Mission: Another edition of the largest knife exhibition in Poland and the knives.pl group gathering
The level of excitement: I have been waiting anxiously for months for this event, because it is comparable to opening gifts at Christmas

By the time I got to Warsaw, I had already made appointments with over a dozen friends from all over Poland just to talk to them, laugh and see newly acquired knife specimens. After entering the Palace of Culture and Science, even though it was half an hour to open the exhibition, a long queue appears to my eyes. There is an idyllic and nervous atmosphere combined with excitement. Around, you could hear conversations about knives and all kinds of outdoor equipment.

One of my colleagues in the queue is interested in my patches on the backpack, another on the multitool pouch and a knife on the belt. This year there is much more space for exhibitors - both shops, companies and creators of knives, leather goods, stabilized wood on handles, knives, swords and axes. I noticed that it is much brighter than on previous meetings, which probably pleases all bloggers and photographers. The creators have exhibited their work, and there is really something to hang the eye on.

The latest works at your fingertips. You can order or buy what you see. I was trying to see everything! Some tables attract attention not only with great knives, but also with the opportunity to try your equipment, try snacks straight from the forest, sharpen your knife or see the structure of its cutting edge under a microscope.

Direct contact with exhibitors and sellers allows me to agree on the price and advice on some aspects of their products. The incredibly loose atmosphere allows for free exchange of experiences and establishing new interesting acquaintances. My knife, after two years of hard camp work and traveling around Europe, goes to its creator at the spa.

For variety, some organizers have prepared several interesting competitions with prizes, including using a multitool on time, cutting sheets or string. There is also space for children's charity auctions where you can bid for specially prepared knives and prizes.

Next year I will definitely come back here, to my friends, to the creators ... To see new knife trends, as well as learn something new from them, and above all, to sharpen my knife in the sharpest, but also most friendly convention atmosphere in Poland. Because it is here that the new generation learns that the knife is a tool, also learns how to create your tools, but above all how to take care of them. I can only say: see you next year!
