Extra! Extra! You must read all about it. 

Fresh off the press – The Knifenerd Guide To Japanese Knives.   We now have in stock this new book released by Kevin Kent, with exceptional photographic accompaniment by Visti Kjar.

They have brought to life this 312 page hard cover book, that is a beautiful homage to the art and craft of blacksmithing and bladesmithing.

 

This book covers various smiths, individual styles, knife care, materials, and equipment used in the process.  It also contains a well laid out section on metallurgy.

 

You don’t specifically have to be interested in Japanese knives to get a lot out of this book.  The information could be applied to any style of cutlery, or other blacksmithing endeavours.

 

The cost to purchase this fine book is $45.00 + GST, and would make an excellent gift for current or aspiring blacksmiths/bladesmiths.
