The most comprehensive book on knives ever put together in Australia.
$60 plus p&h.
This book has something of interest for all knife users including hunters, campers, fishermen, home cooks, chefs, students and meat workers.
It is a collection of the many articles Robert Dewey has written over the years. Also included are a number of reviews by John Dunn, the Editor.
Robert recommends standards of performance and explains the components and features that, put together, produce a quality knife. He also recommends the sharpening techniques to obtain that ultimate finish. His advice, when followed, will bring joy to all those who struggle with their domestic knives and to hunters who would like to achieve skinning outcomes to match the example given.
There is a thoughtful look at knife design with reasons given as to 'why' of most, if not all, knife features.
It will be of interest to collectors who value quality, function and simple designs.
