Mareko is exhibiting at the Oregon Knife Collector's Association show this weekend, April 10-12 in Eugene, OR. You can stop by to see Mareko and his knives at Booth B15. He has a new Wa-D hybrid handle he is debuing and a beautiful Kiritsuke Gyuto that will knock your socks off.
In addition to his exhibitor table, Mareko has an informational display on How Steel Becomes Damascus at Table A20, directly across from his exhibitor table. It is a hands-on exhibit where you can physically experience the different steps involved in making beautiful Damascus. Mareko is there to answer any questions you might have, and talk to you about the exciting world of bladesmithing!
