Riassunto: The Case Cutlery Dynasty: Tested XX is the extraordinary story of America's oldest and largest family of knife makers. Since the Civil War, four generations of relations have started over 30 cutlery companies, creating some of the most collected knives in the world. Their products are as rugged as the masters who made them. The Case family was, and remains, a melting pot of personalities - some as wild as the West they helped to settle. The book is written by a Case descendant, Brad Lockwood, who is an award-winning author of four books and was raised in Little Valley, New York - once known as 'The Village of Knives.' Covering 140 years of artisans in business, all related by blood but fiercely competitive, The Case Cutlery Dynasty shows how history becomes mythology over time, money is sometimes thicker than blood, and how a single family from humble beginnings came to dominate an important American industry.
L'autore: Brad Lockwood grew up in Little Valley, New York, 'The Village of Knives' and is a Case descendant, the great-great-grandson of Sara Jane Wyatt and Andrew Jackson Case. The award-winning author of four novels, including Sellout and Wink, The Case Cutlery Dynasty Tested XX is his first major nonfiction work. The father of a daughter, Haylei, and now living in New York City, Brad was inspired by his grandmother's stories, as well as her curious avoidance, to write the history of the Case Family.
