New York Custom Knife Show 2018
Dear friends, we're glad to inform you that the products of the manufactory “Knives of Maria Stalina and Nikolai Lomachenkov” will go to the prestigious American exhibition "New York Custom Knife Show" 2018!
The International Forum New York Custom Knife Show (NYCKS) is one of the largest events for knifemakers and collectors from America and whole world. Every year New York receives more than a hundred famous nail-growers and avid knife art lovers. The main organizer of the show was and remains the American company Fifty Fifty Productions, which is the founder of a number of prestigious knife shows such as the Las Vegas Custom Knife Show, East Coast Custom Knife Show and Tactical Knife Invitational. This year the forty-first exhibition will be held in New York.
The show was founded in the late 70s of XX century by two enthusiasts: the supplier and distributor of custom knives Ted Devlet and the collector Paul Tosig. According to veterans of the community of knifemakers, Devlet was a legendary figure who had a huge impact on the American market of custom knives. The exhibition organizers do not change their traditions and are constantly working to attract new talented knifemakers from around the world. At the moment, the exhibition leader is Stephen Dlekk — the head of Fifty Fifty Productions.
Unfortunately, in 2013, due to the attacks of the district attorney of Manhattan and the bureaucratic red tape, Dlackk decided to move the show from New York to Jersey City.
The official page of the company Fifty Fifty Productions contains a list of exhibitors, including the names of venerable nail makers from the United States, United Kingdom, South Africa, Denmark, Italy, Ukraine, Japan, Germany and Russia.
Sponsors of the event are well-known knife brands and brands like Microtech Knives, Zieba, Recon One, Rikeknife Co., Steel Flame. We can say that the high status of the forum is beyond doubt.
The works of domestic knifemaking will be presented by titled Russian enterprises: Zabelina Workshop, Cheburkov Workshop and Maxim Soltamuradov CultroTech knives.
The host has created all the conditions for a comfortable stay of guests and forum participants. The event will be held near Manhattan in the hotel complex The Westin Jersey City Newport, which is located in Jersey City. The exhibition will be located on the 3rd floor of the complex in the banquet hall. You can get detailed information about the venue on the official website of The Westin Jersey City Newport. You can reserve a room for the duration of the event in the hotel complex by following the link.
NYCKS has become an excellent platform for communication within the global community of knifemakers. Masters willingly share their experiences, talk with colleagues and actively exchange contacts. And guests of the forum can get an idea of the new trends in the development of the production of custom knives and purchase a whole range of knife art masterpieces.
The exhibition will feature not only the best examples of knife art from around the world, but also high-quality “knife-cutter” products: specialized tools, decorative accessories.
To visit NYCKS, the organizers provided for three types of tickets: VIP pass, Collector pass, Day pass.
At the exhibition for two days pass lotteries for visitors. Under the terms of the event, collectors and VIP status holders can compete for the main prizes in the form of two custom knives from leading nail makers. All visitors have the right to participate in the guest lottery. Often, the so-called Door Prize consists of a number of items: from various folding knives and fiskedov to key chains, titanium chopsticks and other decorative accessories.
