500 Knives: Celebrating Traditional and Innovative Designs by Marthe Le Van
This is the latest from the highly successful "500 Series". It presents an amazing on-the-page gallery of an array of contemporary knives. It features everything from daggers and swords to kitchen knives and simple elegance to daring extravagance. Contemporary knife makers are far more daring than their counterparts from as recently as a generation ago: they've become masters of new techniques and technologies, experts in reinterpreting form and function to create sculptural works of art. Readers can flip through this amazing on-the-page gallery and discover a dizzying array of styles, from ones that demonstrate simple elegance to others that feature over-the-top embellishment. The collection includes daggers, kitchen knives, hunting knives, combat and folding knives, switchblades, multi-blades, swords, axes, tomahawks and even a pistol-knife - all honed with fine creative vision. Artists include: Don Hanson, Tim Hancock, Frankie Flood, Johan Gustafsson, Allen Elishewitz and many more!
