Title is correct Jan. 1 2013
By viking - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the world's greatest knife book. Not only are there the wonderful styles and varieties of knives, but there are practical and educational aspects to it as well. I would have bought it just for the article "From Beach Sand to Blade"- the rest was just a bonus.

Probably the best on the market Oct. 25 2012
By navydoc72 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is my second addition of this book and it has all that I could ask for. I've made a few knives but my artistic ability is zero. With the great photo's of what the great makers are doing I get a lot of ideas that I would have never figured out on my own. The DVD's are great and only support what I'm trying to learn. It also helps that all the pro's are listed in the back. I've contacted a few and they are all willing to answer my questions and help with even the simplest of questions. If you need ideas, contacts, supply sources or just like to see what others are doing, this is your book. I highly recommend it for anyone currently making knives or anyone interested in starting knife making for income or just as a hobby.

I have many books on knives but none better than this one. The photos are super and I spent way too much time just looking at the pictures and not getting any work done. Very, very nice book. Loved it!!!

Have purchased previous versions of this book. A most desirable reference for knife collectors. Best way to keep up with what's happening in the knife world.

Pictures for inspiration Feb. 6 2012
By Kristian S - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The book, Knives 2012, is a collection of (mostly) American blades and reviews on typical American blade art.
There are knives from around the world but mostly american. Some knives in the book are absolutely stunningly beautiful, but in my eyes most of them are expensive materials and impressing handwork, but needing the last touch, the last bit of 'soul'. Buy the book youself and judge. You will find a lot of inspiration for your own knifemaking or just drool over the nicely arranged pages with blades dressed in the most impressing materials on the planet.
