Blade HQ Grand Opening

Cam On March 29 we are celebrating our grand opening and 10 year anniversary, and we want you to be a part of it!

Why should you come, you ask? That's a fair question. Beside giving you the opportunity to celebrate with a great company and participate in fun competitions, we have two more words for you: free stuff.

The funtivities will go from noon to 5 p.m. on March 29. We will have free food and lots of opportunities for you to win prizes. Spin our Wheel of Prizes to find out what prize will be yours and enter our YouTube celebrity raffles for more chances to win. We will also have sales going on from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and customers who spend $175 or more will receive a free Spyderco Resilience while supplies last (limit one per customer, in-store only).

Those mad knife skills you thought you'd never get a chance to show off will have a place at our grand opening. Join our knife throwing contest or our water bottle cutting contest for a chance to win a prize (you must be 18 or older for these contests, and you must bring your own knife for the water bottle cutting contest).

Our custom paracord contest is open to customers of all ages. You can bring in a paracord item that you've already made, but we will also have some paracord available if you choose to make something at Blade HQ. Our staff will be judging and giving out prizes for the coolest paracord items.

Be sure to mark our grand opening and 10 year anniversary on your calendars! More than anything, our grand opening is really a chance for us to thank you, our customers. Thanks for coming to us, and we hope to see you at the event!
