I must say, this book is excellent. The text, the information, the pictures, the layout, everything. For anyone interested in the history of knives, steelwork, weaponry, and Western history, this book is a must. Dover's edition is fantastically well put together.

I would definitely recommend any one researching knives or styles of daggers and fighting knives to pick up a copy of this book. Worth having for reference in your library.

A short but some what detailed history of Fighting knives. A fun and enjoyable learning experience.
