I’m rather chagrined to admit that I don’t as yet own a crooked knife. I hope to rectify that soon.
And this book only fuels my desire to get one. Or a bunch. Given that there is a profusion of blade shapes depending on the use, I may end up with a few different ones.
This book is free and downloadable in PDF format, albeit in sections. The portfolio pages are noteworthy, showing a wide variety of wonderfully creative handle designs, some of them very old.
