Knives 2009 has even more art knife photos than Knives 2008 but there isn't much to read. The articles just keep going down hill in quality. Please bring back Ken Warner as editor!
All of these series books have nice great pictures in the first half or so of the pages then page after useless page of phone book style listings of maker after maker. This info would be better put on a single "source" web page and be more up to date as well! BUT then this book would look more like a magazine than a book. You see this black and white w/little to no photos in the back of the book is cheap filler to make your magazine look like a book, we all did it in school, you know triple spacing, redundant verbage, etc. I still like these books simply because I buy them a year old and get them for magazine prices. To see one new knife design makes it worth the price.
Knives 2010 is a great addition to any knife enthusiast or collector. The chapters are well written and include quite a bit of information concerning trends and this volume includes a knife making dvd. A good buy for sure.
I get the Knives each year for my husband who makes knives. He keeps each issue and I know enjoys looking through them. If you like or make knives, I highly recomend the yearly Knives books.
While the first half of the book had some good pics, the entire remaining half had nothing but contact info. You're losing it. Very disappointed!!!!!
All the knives knifemakers want collectors to buy and very few you can actually use. The feature stories are also no where near the quality of writing that editor Ken Warner once found for the book.
