GAKC is the Gateway Area Knife Club, a St. Louis Knife Club that hosts an annual knife show in January. The Saint Louis Knife Show, or Saint Louis Cutlery Show, and our monthly meetings are an opportunity for St. Louis Knife Makers, Bladesmiths, Knife Collectors, and Knife Aficionados to come together.

Gateway Area Knife Club


We are a St. Louis Knife Club with members in the Saint Louis and surrounding area.  We host an annual St. Louis Knife show and Cutlery Fair.

Gateway Area Knife Club is made up of knife collectors, knife makers, and people who appreciate fine knives, in and around the St. Louis area.  It was established in 1987 and currently has about 200 active members.

The club has a monthly meeting on the second Thursday of each month at the Carpenters Union Hall at 1401 Hampton Ave, St. Louis, MO 63139.  Meetings start at 6:30 pm.  Visitors are always welcome.

We are very excited to announce our annual Cutlery Fair, Knife Show.  This will be held January 26 & 27, 2019 at the Carpenters' Hall.  Please take a look at our flyer in our Calendar or by clicking here
