Whether a knife is a utilitarian tool to be used, maintained and respected; an object of art to be admired; or an example of fine craftsmanship passed down from generation to generation, countless examples are showcased in Knives 2016 with full descriptions and specifications of each model.
Modern flipper folders featuring bronze bushings and ball bearing pivot systems share space with traditional hunters and pocketknives in jigged bone and wood handles.
