In 101 Knife Designs, author Murray Carter presents the perfect follow-up companion to his successful book, Bladesmithing with Murray Carter. Scaled designs, along with detailed images and supportive text, allow aspiring bladesmiths to create their own knives using Carter's popular, time-honored designs. Dazzling, full-color images of the completed knives - from renowned photographer Hiro Soga - provide inspiration and direction. 101 Knife Designs will show the reader why certain distinct blade designs have stood the test of time and remain popular even to this day. Practical blade patterns follow several rules of thumb. When these rules are applied to new knife designs, there is a greater chance the design will stand the test of time and use.
