   Knives were our ancestor’s first tools, one of the oldest forms of art, and among the first family heirlooms. This weekend, on September 21st and 22nd, some of the finest old world craftsmen from the U.S. and Canada will gather with their handmade knives at the SouthEastern Custom Knife Show, held in the Benton Convention Center in Winston-Salem.

Incredible examples of blacksmithing skill acquired over decades of intensive training will be on display and for sale from 9-5 on Saturday, and 10-3 on Sunday. North Carolina Knifemakers Guild and American Bladesmiths Society member John Hege provides this preview with David Ford.
