New Folder Book!

I just got my copy of Art & Design in Modern Folding Knives! 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.

Okay, that one's going on my Amazon wish list

Who else is in the book? Probably worth it just for Herman and Lindsay of course.....

John Lewis Jensen has updated his website with a reference to this book.



"This knife was commissioned specifically for inclusion in a very special forthcoming book entitled "Art and Design in Modern Custom Folding Knives", by Dr. David Darom to be available for $60, (please refer to the Moon Storm page for further detailed information on this knife as well as the book) Moon Storm also features the debut of my own Damascus."
