Table of Contents

The true German knife collectors bible! This is the gold standard, the equivalent of "Goins' Encyclopedia" for German makers of knives, razors, and other forms of cutlery.

The first volume of Anthony Carter's "The Sword and Knife Makers of Germany 1850-2000", covering half the alphabet, was published in 2001. Unfortunately, Carter died the following year before he was able to finish the second volume. Carter was also the owner of the publishing house, so the whole project was in danger of never being finished. Thankfully, due to the foresight and dedication of Christian Cranmer, whose son Alexander was Anthony Carter's godson, this project is finally complete.

This volume has been assembled with the tremendous help and contributions of both John Walter and Henning Ritter and now represents the complete set of makers A to Z in one massive 656-page text with over 2300 illustrations.

This book is absolutely required for anyone with an interest in antique and vintage makers of German cutlery.

Over 2300 illustrations.
