The Complete Book of U.S. Military Pocket Knives: From the Revolutionary War to the Present
Michael W. Silvey

This book is a color celebration of the pocket knives of the United States military, and features both U.S. and foreign-made models. It is a historical chronology beginning with the first folders of the early 1800s and ending with the high-tech knives of the twenty-first century. There are nearly 400 color photographs showing hundreds of different issue pocket knives—single-blade, multi-blade, and multi-tool—including many that have never been shown in a publication before. Clear, up-close images present manufacturers’ marks in great detail. This is a book that will be opened time and again just for the pleasure of viewing. It is a book that has something for the beginner as well as the advanced collector and others interested in the cutlery history of the United States military.
