I purchased this book because I am a long time admirer of fine cutlery and art in any of it's forms. I highly recommend this book to other knife makers, jewelers, artists, hobbyists, photographers or anyone interested in the subject of artistic knife making. I'm impressed!
For me this book is full of ideas and worth every cent that I paid for it so go ahead and get yourself a copy.
The photos in this book are top-notch, as are the knives presented. These knives are a type of art. The materials used, the techniques applied, the use of Damascus steel are unsurpassed. This is a great book to have around for inspiration or just for conversation. This is a collector's arena. The prices on these knives can be out of this world. At least like a trip to the jewerly store with your wife, who picks one of the most expensive pieces in the showcase.
