"The best researched study of any American pocketknife manufacturer… the detail is impressive… a most welcome addition to the knife literature… if you like cutlery history, you will love this book."
—Mark Zalesky, editor
Knife World, November 2002

A much anticipated, critically acclaimed book, four years in the making. Krauss uses his passion for pocket knives, tempered by his finely-honed skills as a researcher, to thoroughly document the chronologies of the Schatt & Morgan Cutlery company and the Queen Cutlery company. He includes numerous references to the larger American cutlery business. The book takes the reader on a journey through the American cutlery industry from the late 1800's to 2002. It includes over 250 pages, eight full color pages and more than 125 other illustrations, many rare and never before published. The book is printed on highest quality stock in an 8.5 by 11.5 inch format, and is available exclusively from the author.
