About this title

Synopsis:

Flook has drawn on 20 years of collecting experience to create this comprehensive guide to knives used by British and Commonwealth military personnel over the past 150 years. Pieces from the Victorian era, WWI, WWII, and those used by today's forces in Australia, India, Canada, and New Zealand are covered. Many items, such as the RAF commando knife and previously unrecorded patterns of Robbins of Dudley knives, are correctly identified or illustrated for the first time.

Review:

British and Commonwealth Military Knives is the book for which a lot of collectors have been waiting a long time. There is nothing else of any substance available on the subject. -- Arms Collecting
