ECCKS March 1-3

17 posts in this topic

Just a heads up...the East Coast Custom Knife Show (ECCKS) will be at the Westin Hotel in Jersey City from March 1-3. Great show, and great opportunity to see knives that you would not normally get to see up close and fondle. My better half and I will be there both Friday and Saturday.

MUST RESIST THE TEMPTATION! maybe i'll take a peek on saturday. :)

 

I hate how everything's become a lotto now. Hinderer's booth is always crazy. Got dealers holding 7-10 tickets while you stand there with your measily one. I was at a lotto one time and a dealer was drawn. He flipped it immediately after he took it. Come on! Dealers should not be allowed to participate in a show raffle. Dealers already got first dibs even before the doors open.

 

Personally, I've been itch'in for a RJ Martin or Todd Begg. A Dave Mosier or Greg Lightfoot would be nice too. MUST RESIST!!!

 

Thanks for the heads up though. Almost forgot.

I know what you mean, but there is always a chance. Both my wife and I have been picked at one of the Hinderer lotteries...mine have stayed right here despite dealers offers. :)

I haven't been to the JC shows yet. Only went to the NYC shows when they were still held there. How do they compare? I remember NYC shows were usually cramped.

 

They get busy after 1 on friday, and packed most on Saturday.

Pretty much if you want anything that is hard to find, you need to get there Fri at 11am. Just know where your vendor/maker will be.

There is a board outside the door with a map of the vendor locations so you can head right over to the table you're looking for. Anybody want to set up a meet for NJGF members at the show?

That's nice mag1. Thanks for sharing. I've been wanting one of his Spanto customs for a while. Just don't want to cave into the grey mkt pricing to get one. My friend's got a Gen 1 before he became popular. Now that was a smart investment. Can you believe he was charging $385 for them back then? By the time I heard about him, he was in the Gen 3s already.

 

He still making his stuff in 20CV?
