Overview

A Stunning Showcase Of Custom Knives

The craft of knifemaking is alive and well, as evidenced by the stunning edged masterpieces revealed between the covers of the best book on blades ever published—Knives 2011. The art of fashioning knives includes carving, engraving, sculpting, scrimshaw, jewel inlaying, damascus-making and more. Never have so many embellishments been revealed in one medium, then captured in a full-color, glossy, photo-driven book such as this must-have volume that's ready for the coffee table or special place on the bookshelf.

  • Treat yourself to feature stories covering one of the best wedges in the business, friction forging, “Swordplay Renaissance-Style,” the latest in cleaver offerings, “Scrimshaw That Drives Men Crazy” and villagers' blade art.
  • Learn how one knife collector—Paul Lansingh—is giving back to the world of knives.
  • Find out the answer to the question, “Why Do We Love Knives?”
  • Follow author James Ayres and his wife, Mary Lou, on their quest to find carbon steel along the cobblestone streets of Europe.
  • In the Factory Trends section, take a look at the newest in “Blue Collar Blades.”

    In between, enjoy the latest Trends and State Of The Art in knives. It's a trip worth taking. The pages are palpable, the text worth reading and the pictures worth a thousand words and more. Each bladed creation is a work of art in its own right, and a credit to its maker.
