A listing of markings of manufacturers and dealers in cutlery consisting of bowie knives, butcher knives, hunting knives, pocket knives, and straight razors.

Goins' Encyclopedia, 2nd Edition is one of the most talked about books in recent memory. Since the first Encyclopedia became required reading for all cutlery collectors, John and Charlotte Goins have been deluged with ever more questions, queries, and bits of information on old firms and markings. Increasingly, collectors have wondered if and when there might be an update to that knife collector's "bible." Friends, the answer is yes, and that day is finally here.

For those of you unfamiliar with the "Goins Book," Goins' Encyclopedia contains summaries of the known history behind practically every marking found on antique cutlery. There are literally thousands of cutlery manufacturers, importers, dealers, hardware firms, barber supply companies, and the like included in its scope. When it comes to historial information on the brands of old knives, razors, or anything else that goes 'cut,' Goins' Encyclopedia is far and away the best single resource.

The Goins' Encyclopedia is far and away the best source of information ever published on old cutlery firms and markings. If you collect, deal in, research, or just enjoy the history behind old knives, razors and other edged collectables, this book is an absolute must-have resource.

This book is out of print. Limited quantities are available.
