From Setbacks to Sharp Success: Ketuo USA & Rike Knife Shine at Blade Show Atlanta 2024

From Setbacks to Sharp Success: Ketuo USA & Rike Knife Shine at Blade Show Atlanta 2024

The bright lights of the Cobb Galleria Centre in Atlanta, Georgia, dimmed on Saturday, March 9th, marking the close of the 2024 Blade Show Atlanta. Ketuo USA, the official online store of Rike Knife, is proud to look back on an eventful and ultimately rewarding experience as an exhibitor at this premier knife event.

Blade Show Atlanta boasts a reputation as the world's largest knife show, attracting over 10,000 attendees and over 1,000 exhibitors in 2024. It's a platform for knife enthusiasts, collectors, industry professionals, and bladesmiths from around the globe to connect, showcase their work, and explore the latest trends in the knife industry.

A Blade Show with Unexpected Twists:

Our journey to Blade Show Atlanta wasn't without its challenges. Arriving minus a ride due to unforeseen circumstances, the Ketuo USA team faced an initial hurdle. However, the spirit of collaboration and determination prevailed. A team member undertook a 640-mile trek to retrieve essential supplies, ensuring our participation. This exemplifies the resilience and resourcefulness that defines the knife community.

A Blade Show Award We Won't Blunt:

Despite the initial setbacks, Ketuo USA's Blade Show experience culminated in a truly remarkable achievement. We are incredibly excited and humbled to announce that Ken Onion and Karbon Knives with Ketuo Knife USA were awarded the Knife Collaboration of the Year for the Buckhorn folding knife! This prestigious recognition is a testament to the collaborative spirit of the project and the exceptional quality of the Buckhorn. Working with the legendary Ken Onion was an honor, and bringing his vision to life with meticulous attention to detail was our top priority.

The Buckhorn Lands:

We are thrilled to announce that the award-winning Buckhorn folding knife is now available on! This exceptional knife exemplifies Ken Onion's design genius and features:

  • Micro-milled Handles: Offering a stunning aesthetic and exceptional grip.
  • High-Quality Finish: Impeccable craftsmanship shines through.
  • Hand-Finished Satin Polished S35VN Blade: Delivers outstanding performance and durability.
  • Pearlescent Bead-Blast Handle: Adds a touch of elegance.
  • Exceptional Value: The Buckhorn offers premium quality at an attractive price.

A Heartfelt Thank You:

This Blade Show experience wouldn't have been possible without the unwavering dedication of the Ketuo USA team, the collaborative spirit of Ken Onion and Karbon Knives, and the continued support of our valued customers. Thank you to the Blade Show organization for recognizing our work with the prestigious Knife Collaboration of the Year award. We look forward to returning to Blade Show Atlanta in 2025, building upon this year's success!
