The Knife in Homespun America” by Madison Grant. If your not familiar with this book It is a great Read for those that love history and knives. The book has original pieces in it that range in date from the 1600’s into the 19th century. Most with history and info on each knife. The book also covers some shooting (possible bags), swords, folding knives. It will be easy to see by looking at some of the earliest design knives in this book where many of today’s designs originated from.
