Celebrating Traditional & Innovative DesignsPaperback - 2009
Contemporary knifemakers 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. Flip through this amazing on-the-page gallery, and you'll 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. The international roster of artists includes: Don Hanson - Tim Hancock - Rebecca Sheer - Chantal Gilbert - Anders Hogstrom - Vince Evans - Frankie Flood - Johan Gustafsson - Allen Elishewitz - Jot Singh Khalsa - Wendy Yothers - and more!
