Overview
Definitive and compulsively readable for layman and expert alike--an illustrated guide to the use of fighting knives by long-time Blade columnist Hank Reinhardt.

Definitive and compulsively-readable--an illustrated guide to the use of contemporary knives by long-time Blade columnist and master weaponsmith, Hank Reinhardt. Deadlier than the club, more ubiquitous than the sword, the knife is the universal edged weapon of all humankind. As our society has grown more advanced, and more reliant on technology, there has been an increased interest in the weapons of the past.
Hank Reinhardt was a widely known authority on medieval arms and armor and a long-time columnist for Blade magazine. Unlike many experts, Reinhardt insisted on actually making and testing the weapons he wrote about, and through his various activities was instrumental in increasing the popularity of arms and armor in mainstream America.

About Hank Reinhardt's Book of Knives:
"Do you know someone who's a military enthusiast? How about a gamer? Or anyone who writes SF, fantasy, thrillers, mysteries, or historical fiction?. . .In this well-researched and highly readable book, Reinhardt] presents everything there is to know about knives and knife-fighting, complete with pictures and diagrams. From the history of knives through such chapters as 'the street knife, ' 'knife concealment, ' and 'wounds, ' Reinhardt dispels all the Hollywood myths of what knife fighting is like."--Analog
