This softback format is 160 pages of excellent photos and text. For the first time, the foreign daggers of both WW1 and WW2 are finally identified. In addition to the foreign pieces, Kurt also covers German Damascus makers and their tang marks, German Imperial Naval pieces, fantasy pieces, and even the current reproductions coming out of Texas. An extremely worthwhile addition to your reference library. The price is a “song” compared to the value you will receive from this book. Out of print.
