This book is an introduction to some of the better knife designs and a valuable reference for outdoorsmen and collectors alike. While aesthetics and "feel" are important in choosing such a personal item as knife, and beauty is, indeed, in the eye of the beholder, performance doesn't lie. Read and compare. It's all here in black and white--the good, the bad, and the ugly of some of the finest examples of modern hard-use cutlery.
