Knives and Gear, it’s all here. It’s more than a tag line, it’s our commitment to bring our attendees the best possible gathering of some of the top makers around the world. From our Friday evening invitational events to our weekend shows, there is a wide selection of goods for collectors and enthusiasts alike.
INVITIATIONAL EVENTS – TKI SOCAL or FNBA
For those that plan on attending any of our Friday evening invitational events, be prepared for a fun and exciting evening! Your VIP pass to this show not only gains access to the event with the opportunity to score a knife from one of our invited makers, but also includes complimentary dinner and drink.
The format of the show is quite different than any other show, with digital lottery entries and dedicated auction end times. More details can be found for each specific show by clicking one of the buttons below:
Keep in mind that your VIP pass to these events gains you VIP access all weekend! Simply bring your Badge from the Friday evening event and show it to our door entrance staff upon entry.
KNIVES AND GEAR SHOWS – CCKS SPRING/FALL
Be prepared to attend the hottest shows of the year! Our shows not only offer a wide array of some of the most talented makers in the knife/EDC community, but also bring together some of the best suppliers and purveyors our industry has to offer.
That being said, our events draw an incredible crowd. BE PREPARED! The entrance (VIP) line can start VERY early. Many times, from the night before! We work very hard to keep a fair, organized event to maintain the quality of our shows to all that attend. We have protocols in place to assure this. These include:
No Vendor crowding before the doors open
The aisles are cleared minutes before the doors open to assure that VIP attendees who patiently waited in line are in fact the first to access our Exhibitor’s tables.
Dedicated ticket system for select Exhibitors
A secondary ticket system may be implemented for select vendors that are notorious for a rush crowd when the show doors open. Numbered tickets are distributed to those that are in the VIP entrance line (one ticket per attendee). These tickets are subsequently collected by the Exhibitor in number order and the attendee can make their purchase. Exhibitors cannot obtain tickets, unless they are standing in the VIP attendee line prior to the show opening.
