In its 31st edition, "The Knives Annual Book" has followed the progression of knives from traditional pocketknives to custom bowies, autos, dirks, daggers and fast-opening, one-hand folders. Through colour photography and informed writing, the transition from carbon steel blades to damascus and from bone or stag handles to ancient ivory, pearl, titanium, and such exotics as giraffe bone and walrus tusk have been documented and forever immortalised within the pages of the book. It is treasured by knife collectors, enthusiasts, knifemakers and dealers.
