Today Is ‘Day Of The Knife’

Happy Knife Day! Today, August 22, 2014, is this year’s “Day Of The Knife,” a celebration of blades and anything with an edge.

Cabela’s and Buck Knives are the sponsors this summer, and over the past month we have together run content on knives, interviewed experts on camera, and awarded 100+ knives via a litany of contests and reader challenges.

All of the content and opportunities to get a blade are on the “Day Of The Knife” site and DOTK Facebook page.
