Gembloux Knife Fair of 12-13 November 2022
The annual knife exhibition in Gembloux , Belgium is the highlight of the year for BKS.
2500 visitors will come to find out what the more than 170 exhibitors have to present to them, as every year.
I often like to make this type of informative post on fairs and exhibitions of cutlery to be able to make a small contribution to make known fairs and exhibitions on cutlery.
There is always a need to make known and promote the custom knife to people who have this interest, make it discover to new people and also provide suggestions to makers to participate in these events as exhibitors or as an opportunity to meet other makers and see their works directly and not through a photo.
What is the BKS (belgian knife society)
The BKS is a network of passionate fans of the craft of the knife maker.
From knife makers, to suppliers of raw materials and collectors with whom many objects end up.
All those who have been fascinated and interested in the knife are welcome at the BKS.
History of the belgian knife society
BKS was founded in 1996 by René Bol, Jacques Delfosse, Richard Ghenne and Alain Lapierre.
The four friends had set themselves the goal of gathering as many people as possible around the handmade cutlery.
Almost 25 years later, the team behind BKS has changed, but the basic principles have remained the same.
The mission of the BKS is:
- promote the exchange of knowledge,
- record the history of knife art,
- carry out surveys and promote knives to the general public.
It is one of the historic fairs for cutlery in Europe and has already reached its 21st edition.
If you have the opportunity to visit the fair tell me about your experience and if you participate as a maker I hope it is a wonderful experience for you and that you have also sold some of your knives.
