Newbie knife collector question


Oct 27, 2004
I 'm just getting started on knife collecting, mainly Case and Queen knives.
After collecting firearms for years (ran out of room) I just got bit by this
bug. I only have a couple dozen now and need some reading material
before I proceed any further. Can you recommend a good reference
book(s) that I should purchase?
I suggest that everyone get Les Robertson's little book on collecting custom knives, you can order it right from his website.
Although it's aimed at the custom knife buyer much of the information carries over into collecting production knives. Besides, if you really are bit by the knife bug at some point you are going to have the desire for a custom or handmade knife. This book will save you many times the cost of the book.
