BOOKS.

I have often been asked if I can acquire certain titles for customers, as a lot of very high quality, informative volumes are now out of print. Because of this, they can be hard to find ( as well as resulting in high prices - and in some cases, extremely high ! ) so I am now going to list books for sale as well.

I hope to be able to offer titles of interest to 'Knife Lovers' and Collectors alike, as and when I obtain them, to enjoy.

( I trust buyers to buy these books in the spirit intended and not simply treat it as a library to buy and then return after reading ! )

POCKET KNIVES by BERNARD LEVINE. Pub. 2002

An excellent book covering the whole spectrum of pocket knives, from the very beginning right up to the modern. Written by one of the Cutlery's World most respected writers, with all colour illustrations throughout.

This is the softback version of this volume. 8-1/2"x11-1/2".

Excellent, near mint condition. £15 plus p&p

The complete guide to HUNTING KNIVES by Durwood Hollis.

Printed in 2001, this is a very informative read for anyone interested in using knives outdoors, not only in a sporting context, but as general use. With chapters on steels, handle materials, sharpening and covering a multitude of factory made knives as well as custom. Even though it is now a few years out of date, a lot of the content is still very valid and Durwood is to be complimented on a most enjoyable read. 

Excellent, near mint condition. £10 plus p&p

SOLD HOW TO MAKE KNIVES by BARNEY & LOVELESS.

The classic book ( some might even say the Bible ! ) on how to make knives by the Legend himself, Bob Loveless. I don't think I need to describe this much, because if you are reading this then you know all about this book, which has been the starting point for many, many Knifemakers the world over. I believe that this book is now out of print, and even though it is still available to buy at various outlets - it is unlikely you will find one in such nice condition as this one.

Excellent, near mint condition. £30 plus UK p&p.

A true Legend. I am proud to have known and met him. The Knifemaking world is a lesser place without him.
