Living on the Edge 31 Mar 2014, 7:24 pm




There is a fascination about knives, and collecting them that I do not fully understand.  But i do appreciate the craftsmanship that goes into creating many of them.  And with that in mind, I wanted to remind you about the 24th Annual Shenandoah Knife Collectors Show coming to Harrisonburg on April 4-6.  If you like knives as art, this is the place to be.
