Great history of American knives. Covers a varity of ways to make knives. Photos or printing is lacking, most images are too dark to be usefull

This book is clearly the choice for any knife maker. It offers instructions on stock removal, forging, sheath making, and even knife making with hand tools. Very easy to understand instructions will have you grinding away in no time. It also offers places to get materials/services, alternate ways of doing some of the steps, a history in knife making, and comments to help pick out the right materials for you. It solved every question I had when I decided to make a knife.

While there are other books on knifemaking, this one should be on the bookshelf of anybody who has ever wanted to know how custom knives are made. In clear, concise, layman language, the craft of the knifemaker is explained in loving detail by two of the foremost practitioners of the art, Bob Loveless (stock removal) and Bill Moran (forging). For knife nuts (like this reviewer), this book is the only book you need to have.
