The new fourth edition of The Standard Knife Collector’s Guide includes virtually all knife manufacturers, both old and new: Chicago Cutlery, Holley, Belknap, Eagle, Remington, E.C. Simmons, Shapleigh, Winchester, Aerial, and Imperial, to name just a few. The guide presents a common sense system for 'total appraisal' using the RBR scales; overviews of all the major knife companies; notes on commemoratives, reproductions, and limited editions; knife clubs and organizations; numbering systems used by companies; and current collector values. Plus there are more than 800 line drawings and an expanded full-color photo gallery showcasing the various handle materials - celluloid, wood, bone, abalone, ivory, metal, plastic, and more. This edition, although largely expanded, is still in its easy-to-use format, making it simple to locate company information and pricing for thousands of collectible knives. Authors Ron Stewart and Roy Ritchie are well-known cutlery experts; some of their other successful titles include The Big Book of Pocket Knives, Standard Guide to Razors, Second Edition, and Cattaraugus Cutlery Company. Everything you ever needed to know about knives is in The Standard Knife Collector’s Guide. 688pp.
