A Note from the Owner on Blade Show 2020
"In our wildest dreams, none of us could have imagined the concerns, confusion and uncertainty that has come in the past four or five months. In the overall, Chris Reeve Knives has weathered COVID-19 well, and we are grateful that our staff has remained healthy and our facility had to close for only a few weeks.
Of the many important decisions we have had to make during this time, the one that might have been the hardest is whether to attend Blade Show or not. We have taken advice, discussed at length, weighed pros and cons and studied statistics but have finally decided our best course of action is to press the skip button for 2020. We love Blade Show - the organizers, the exhibitors and the customers – and are extremely sad to miss it all this year. We felt we needed to make the decision now to give adequate notice to everyone and to help manage our production planning.
Although Idaho has experienced considerably fewer cases than other parts of the country, the number of confirmations has spiked recently as more and more venues have opened again. This seems to be happening in several parts of the country and we feel that by traveling and interacting with large groups, we would only perpetuate the trend. Our decision comes not out of fear but from respect for our fellow Americans.
We appreciate your understanding and continued loyalty!"
- Anne Reeve
