I've been collecting knives for many years, more or less as a curiosity and not as a serious collector. I bought this book to see what's new. It's very interesting and loaded with good color photos, but I was surprised (maybe I shouldn't have been) to discover that it's almost completely focused on custom-made knives from what are to me, obscure knifemakers.

When I bought the book, I figured it would be like a "Gun Digest", listing all the knives of all the popular manufacturers, with photos and specs. Nope, there's none of that here.

I did learn a lot from it but probably will never buy one of the exotic knives shown in the book.

So if you're after some knowledge about basic "working" type knives made by the major manufacturers (e.g., Case, Queen Cutlery, Boker, etc.), this book isn't for you (or me).

Don't waste your money on this book.

Maybe it's my own fault I ended up with book, because I love knives for practical everyday use and there is always something new coming down the pike. I enjoy seeing the pictures and reading the discussions on quality and practicality. I like to see how I might use another affordable new knife.

I was looking for a publication that had a brief write-up concerning manufactured knives such as Case XX, Kershaw, Kissing Crane, Puma, A.G. Russell, Schrade, Frost, Leatherman, SOG, Buck and others. I was looking for a publication that depicted the current offerings for the year concerning everyday knives the ordinary consumer can afford.

The knives discussed in this (very expensive publication) book are all about custom knives. It would be great if you were looking for a knife to buy that cost several hundred dollars to several thousand dollars. All of the knife manufactures are listed in the index, but no pictures or discussion about their products. There are several discussions concerning custom knives and how beautiful and wonderful they are. And they are everything depicted and discussed. But once again, most people don't buy this type of knife to use everyday but rather to put in a case and display to their friends.

Stag handles are good for me, also bovine and other bone. However, mammoth ivory is of no interest because of the cost.

Put a $50.00 CaseXX next to a $500.00 custom folding knife and the custom job one be prettier than the CaseXX, but the CaseXX will work the same and the steel on the CaseXX will hold an edge and get the job done. It also carries a lifetime guarantee. Not sure about a custom collectable knife from a small custom shop.

Anyway, if you are a custom manufacturer of knives or a serious collector, the book may be of value to you. It has very little value to me and I am out $15.00 for something I will probably never look at again. It will just take up space in ICloud.

I am going to continue looking for a decent publication about everyday knives.

Hope the review helps knife owners like me. Remember, this is just my opinion.

Nice book and beautiful pictures I just felt the 2012 was a litter better but that could judt be personal preferance over the type of knives displayed.
