Description: Collecting swords is like collecting a piece of history, yet no single book, current or out of print, has spanned the complete history of edged weapons fabrication and retailing in the US--until now.
In addition to swords and the men, companies, and government facilities that made them, American Swords and Sword Makers contains a huge amount of data on other edged makers and their makers, including knives, dirks, naval and infantry pikes, cavalry lances, halberds, tomahawks, and bayonets.
More than 200 exquisite photographs of US and Confederate swords rounds out the text. The wealth of information and variety of photographs make this an indispensable reference for both the beginner and experienced collector of edged weaponry.
