    One thought on “Swords and Daggers: An Illustrated Handbook

    1. Steven

      Nice book with a fairly brief history and overview of swords and daggers. After the few introductory chapters however, the book is then just one picture after another of a multitude of swords and daggers with a small paragraph for each one. Interesting, but many of the swords have very little information, and it becomes little more than a list.

    2. John

      It was cool, some out dated references to technology and categorization, bit otherwise very informative with the majority of the book being pictures of various swords and daggers
