    General Information

    Fascination Knives. Blade, type and material

    Cooking knives, folding knives, fixed knives, razors, tool and agricultural knives ... The author of this volume knows all types of knives and can report interesting facts about every blade shape and every conceivable blade grind.
    Oliver Lang-Geffroy is considered an authority in Germany on all knife issues. Here he takes us on an entertaining journey to the great centers of knife making in Germany, Europe and other parts of the world. The history, construction, and use of knives are explained and scrutinized, and instructions (suitable for laymen) for resharpening your own blades and caring for your knives are not missing. Lang-Geffroy divides the material science into two further chapters on handle materials on the one hand and knife steels on the other: types, properties, manufacture. At the end, no questions remain unanswered.
