Review

Excellent overview and a great place to start Positives: Comprehensive overview of the various manufacturers. Good valuation system that gives direction on which brands are more desirable. Decent discussion of knife care. Good glossy color insert.Cons: Does not discuss the history of various patterns(Stockman,Trapper, etc.), but this seems beyond the scope of the book (find an old copy of Bernard Levine’s Guide to Knives…either the 3rd or 4th edition). A general overview of patterns and their intended use would be nice.This book will get you headed in the right direction of knife collecting. This combined with the Bernard Levine book mentioned above is all you need unless you specialize in a brand. There are Case, Cattaraugus, etc… specific books. As to some other comments, I guess I knew this didn’t cover fixed blade knives, but I guess it should be “The Standard Pocket Knife Collector’s Guide.”
