Book-156 : The Hand Forged Knife: An Introduction to the Working of Modern Tool Steels

  • This 136 page book is full of information that would be valuable to a veteran or a relatively new blade smith. With sections on the basics of steel and the components that make up different grades of steel, to forging, tempering, finishing, leather work, and every step in between. A wide variety of photographs and diagrams take you through every stage of forging a tool steel blade.
  • Printed in 1985, this book clearly doesn't cover any of the more recently developed steels, but is still a great reference for anyone interested in forged blades, either as a maker or collector.
  • Now in stock and ready for immediate delivery
