Knives 2000 Reviews
Knives 2000 is definitely better than last years issue. The first improvement is a cross reference index so you can find out what page the picture is on for the maker you are looking up. For example, I was looking up Canadian knife maker Matt Harildstad since I really like his work. The index showed a reference to page 86 of his drop point hunter. I am glad Ken did this for this years issue.
This book is part of a series of books that has been coming out now for many years. They consist of an article section, a trends in cutlery section (with lots of artfully done photos, and a directory section of the cutlery collectible trade and custom makers, etc. I have the whole run and look at them now and again for reference.
Ken Warner is up to his usual high quality pulling together of fascinating articles and photos of the world of knives. It is a delight to anticipate opening the covers of the book each year.
I bought it as a gift for my husband and he loves it. It has every knife imaginable in it. He hasn't put it away yet and he has had it for 6 months! Gives you values of knives. Good for someone who likes to collect knives and maybe just starting out as well.
