This annual event, born out of the fans’ love for the Forged in Fire competition, is quickly growing to become one of the largest knife shows in Texas, and we invite you to join us! Featuring bladesmiths and knifemakers from across the country – from Master Smiths to next generation makers! And Bellville is perfectly situated between Houston, Austin, and San Antonio and an easy drive from Dallas/Ft.Worth.
Texas Select Event spotlights the makers and their supply vendors, with plenty of forging, chopping & slicing action! And No factory knives! Originating back in 2018 in the backyard of our Blacksmith Shop, this event has continued to grow each year, as the public demand for hand-crafted custom knives has grown. Moving to the spacious venue of the Austin County Fair Convention & Expo Center has allowed us to expand the show to feature even more custom knifemakers from across the nation! Admission is $10 at the door. Knife raffle and food vending benefit many local charities.
