Knives 2009 & 1000 Pictures of Fantastic Knives

knives2009If you haven’t ordered you a copy of the 29th Annual Knives 2009, better get your order in now. It will make a great stocking stuffer (for a really big stocking, that is).

It is just what the doctor ordered to occupy your time while the in-laws and out-laws have taken over your house for the holidays. I plan to sit right there in the middle of all the action and escape to the world of handmade knives.

Not being a hardcore custom knife collector matters not when it comes to enjoying this glossy highly pictorial knife directory. 

Knives 2009 features trends from the world of custom knives, State of the Art and Factory Trends. Don’t assume it is filled with only high-art knives, cause it isn’t. There are tons of custom vintage knives (fixed blades and folders) as well, including my all time favorite by Bill Ruple- a three bladed elephant toenail! All in all Knives 2009 contains over 300 pages. 

This year’s edition includes some interesting articles and high-impact knife photos followed by about a third of the book being a comprehensive directory of all the folks related to custom knives.
