Descrizione libro 2008. Hard Cover with dust jacket. Condizione libro: New. 8 x 11.5 in. Collector Bookstore is a retailer of new books located in Leavenworth, Kansas. We specialize in price guides and reference books for the antiques and collectibles industry. Signed by the author A first-class book about antique folding fruit knives -- the first comprehensive volume on the subject. BOOK REVIEW Reviewed by Knife World Staff Pocket fruit knives are folding knives which contain a cutting blade intended specifically for fruit. Because the acid in fruit juices will rapidly discolor a carbon steel blade, cutlers offered these knives with blades of silver, gold, or silver plate (rarely other materials), which better resist corrosion. With an elegant fruit knife in your pocket, you were prepared for whatever fruit-dining opportunity might present itself. Perhaps no area of knife collecting has been so unfairly neglected as these fruit knives. In design, quality and ornamentation many represent the pinnacle of the cutler's art, and yet it seems that relatively little attention has been paid to them. Inexplicably, collector values have languished well below those fetched by steel-bladed knives of comparable quality, but perhaps that's all about to change. This new book entitled Pocket Fruit Knives is the work of Simon Moore, the leading expert in the field and since 1975, the author of many articles on fruit knives and early European cutlery for The National Knife Magazine, Silver Magazine, and others (he's also penned three booklets for Shires Album series). This book shares its format, retail price, and high standard with The London Knife Book reviewed last month - no coincidence as both are published by David Watson of Antique Knives Ltd. The book is divided into chapters covering: A Brief History of Pocket and Fruit Knives in Europe up to 1650; Early French Pocket Fruit Knives; Pocket Fruit Knives From Other Countries (primarily the U.S.); as well as four lengthy chapters on the evolution, peak, and decline of English Pocket Fruit Knives from the 1700s to 1940. The coverage of French and English fruit knives of all eras is truly outstanding, and far surpasses all previous publications on the subject. While French specimens are rarer here in the U.S. than in Europe, English-made fruit knives are easily the most often encountered and the most popularly collected, making this book an important resource. Coverage of American fruit knives as well as those made in other countries is more basic, but I still cant point to any other source that does a better job. The text is clearly written and well organized, and are accompanied by well over 600 illustrations. Like most other books on collectibles, the photographs are a HUGE drawing card - not just because they're clear and of decent size, but because they show so many fine knives. The hundreds of fruit knives pictured here range from common examples that collectors encounter with frequency, to a wide variety of extremely rare specimens - including some of the finest known. I thought that I would list a few of the more exotic examples pictured, to give one a taste of how complete this book is. Of course there are countless fruit knives with silver blades and mother of pearl (nacre) or tortoiseshell handles, but the number with gold blades is amazing, and handle materials extend to agate, enamel, ivory and fancy celluloid. Some are elaborately inlaid with silver or gold wire (pique work), bits of contrasting shell, and even diamonds and split pearls. There are unusual mechanisms like slotted, slide-out, and butterfly fruit knives, and one even has a mechanism to close the slot between the scales when the blade is open (wow!) You'll find pocketknives containing silver fruit blades, and fruit knives with fork, nut pick, and orange peeler blades. One fruit knife shown has a kukri-shaped silver blade! But some of my favorite photos are those that aren't pretty. There are quite a few shots of early fruit knives that have been disassembled to show hallmarks concealed on a blade's ta.
