National Knife Day Knife Forging Competition
August 24 @ 10:00 am - 4:30 pm
Saturday, August 24 is National Knife Day and there’s no better way to celebrate than with a live-action knife-forging competition at local cutlers, New West KnifeWorks and MTN MAN Toy Shop. There will also be free on-site knife sharpening and the National Knife Day sale, with up to 30% off store wide.
Wyoming’s prodigy bladesmith, Jack Rellstab, will face off against Forged in Fire champion, Brandon Williams, hailing from Blackfoot, ID to compete for knife-making glory.
Taking place just off the square during the Saturday JH Farmer’s Market, both competitors will be given knife specs and then use forges, anvils, and grinders set up for the competition.
The final winner will be decided via an “audience choice” vote on instagram. To vote follow: @mtn_man_toy_shop, @4b_outdoors, and @rellstabknives. More details on the competition to come!
To top it all off, New West KnifeWorks will provide on-site knife sharpening, offering first knife sharpened FREE for all who bring their kitchen knives, pocket knives, and hunting knives for a shaving-sharp tune up. The National Knife Day sale with 30% off store wide goes from August 21st – 25th.
