The Collector's Guide to Switchblade Knives contains a history of the early cutlery industry in America; a detailed examination of the evolution of switchblades; and a user-friendly, up-to-the-minute, illustrated reference section that helps collectors and novices alike identify all kinds of knives from museum-quality antiques to Granddad's old folder that's been hidden in the attic for decades.

This handsome hardcover is for collectors, enthusiasts, historians or anyone even considering buying or selling a switchblade
