Must Have New Folder Book!

I just got my copy of Art & Design in Modern Folding Knives by Dr. David Darom! This is truly the finest book ever printed on folding knives. Plus the added small technical info from each maker in a tutorial of something they do special. It makes it a fantastic text book also. All full color, printed on heavy paper, this is really a wonderful book. All at the price of only $65!!! It will be available at Barnes & Noble and amazon.com soon. Here is the cover and some pages from it. Each featured artist has 8 pages.


Example of one artists section.

2 pages from my section.

Steve Lindsay's engraving section.

Thumbs up WOW!!!

I had just heard about this book on the TKCL mail list, and I understand there will be many copies available at the NYC ECCKS next month (March).

I'm thinking I will DEFINITELY leave there with some of the finest folders in the world. All for only $65.00!!

Thanks, Tim for the pictorial. That clinched it. See ya there!

Coop

If I don't get a copy from Barnes and Noble by then, I'll be picking up a copy at the NY show...

I'm coming up with Ron Nott and a few others...look forward to seeing you guys there.
Maybe someday we can get hold of those much discussed CKD badges one of these days. It would be nice to be able to easily identify some of our forum friends with whom we've not yet met in person...

Dennis

Yeah Baby!

PS. Maybe we should all wear red carnations, or polka dot ties for easy I.D.... 8o
