DCI Knife makers for 2023





For the first time, we are thrilled to welcome makers to participate in the show via the #DamasteelBuildalong. All buildalong makers begin with the same pattern and size of bar and are restricted to making something for the kitchen.  Photos of the finished piece will be displayed on a special Buildalong Knife Page of our website with awards being given for Best in Buildalong as chosen by the team at Knife Talk and Per’s Favourite. Throughout the show, #DamasteelBuildalong participants can visit the Buildalong Session to meet other participants and show off their finished pieces. Participants will need a webcam and microphone. Register now for your free ticket to DCI2023
