Bladestock is an idea of a group of knife buddies (Henk Hakvoort, Henk Kramer and Mark Esser). We periodically have meetings were we hang out, talk about knives and show our latest purchases. Because we uploaded video’s to Youtube more people wanted to join. But for the living room the group grow too big. Bladestock was born.
The name, Bladestock was an idea of a German knife buddy, André, better known on social media as Leman Russ. He won the name contest with his submission.
The first edition was in the mid summer of 2017. Although we started late with preparations, we could have had more exhibitors and visitors, the gathering was a great success. Both, visitors and exhibitors, were very enthusiastic about the concept and many promised to come back.
For next editions we hope to welcome more visitors and exhibitors from surrounding countries like Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg, France, Denmark, Austria and so on.
We want to offer a place where knife enthousiasts from all over Europe can meet, hang out, talk about and enjoy their hobby that is knives.
