     On March 15, 1982, approximately 15 people met in the basement of the recreation center in Forest Park, Georgia, in an effort to form a club for knife collectors, dealers and enthusiasts on the south side of Atlanta. There were no knife clubs on the south side of metropolitan Atlanta. Calling themselves the Flint River Knife Club, the group set out to fill that void. Three organizational meetings later, they started the club with 56 charter members.

The purpose of the club, as stated in its by-laws, is "to enhance and develop the art of knife making, collection, use, and exhibiting of knives.To assist the development and dissemination of technical information regarding every aspect of knives, knife makers, collectors and exhibitors. To encourage, coordinate and sponsor trade shows and meetings."

Any person that makes knives, collects knives or wants to learn to make knives, how to collect, or buys and sells knives is welcome.  Flint River Knife Club meets quarterly and features an informative lecture concerning knives. The exceptions are those months when the club has an outing of some kind, which is usually a technical demonstration at a knife maker's shop. In December the club has a Christmas dinner at one of the local restaurants.

The present location of the quarterly meeting in January, May and November is:

First Baptist Church
142 College Street, Jonesboro GA
(7 pm)
