Collector Bookstore Notes:

This book covers early primitive knives, many of which were handmade. Examples include those used by Native Americans and blacksmith craftsmen from the old west, circa 1790 to 1850.

Publishers Description:

An overview of the history, style and use of the knife in the everyday lives of early Americans. Such knives, though primitive in construction, were totally serviceable. Simplicity and individuality took the place of hallmarks. They were indispensable yet so commonplace that they were taken for granted. However, the truth that comes with proper perspective gives us the opportunity to recognize their contribution. Over 300 items are shown including examples in almost every field of human endeavor.
