After its debut at Knives UK 2018 (where eyes were opened, hopes dashed, legends toppled, and shock results revealed), the quality of entries for the Sharpest Knife Competition 2019 noticeably improved.
Drama and enlightenment added to a day of excitement at Knives UK 2019, with the vast array of beautifully hand crafted knives and tools, what more could you ask for?
The Competition Table:
In case you were not able to come along, the competition table was setup in the ‘social/display’ area of the show.
The Competition In Progress:
A few photos of the competition measuring in progress.
And the Results – an impressive quality to the entries with the overall second place score thanks to a superb BESS score of 51!! A typical double-edged razor blade fresh out of the packet scores 60, so this is very impressive.
It Happened! The first ‘Sharpest Knife’ competition of its kind in a public access show in the Northern Hemisphere. Eyes were opened, hopes dashed, legends toppled, shock results revealed, and a winner who could not believe it!

Let the contest begin:
I was so busy I didn’t have time to get round all the Knives UK exhibitors, so this is a whistle-stop tour that does not do the show justice, merely giving a brief glimpse of it.
IWA 2016 has been fantastic and there is just not enough time to do everything, even attending all-day, every-day of the show. IWA 2016 has been a great opportunity to put names to faces, meet new people, see new products and get together with like minded people.
I’m looking forward to getting my teeth into the IWA inspired reviews and sharing the results.
Here are the first few review candidates which came back from the show with me. (please excuse the hotel bedroom photo) With samples from Spyderco, CRKT/Ruger, Morakniv, Zero Tolerance, Fällkniven, Surefire, Nite Ize and Walkstool. There will be more, so make sure to follow me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for all the latest exclusive updates.
It is now just one week to go until IWA 2016 opens its doors to showcase the best in hunting guns, shooting sports, outdoor equipment and equipment for official agencies, especially for civilian and official self-defense.
I will be there to bring you as many Tactical Reviews as I can.
