For well over 200 years anvils have been made at Mousehole Forge, which for two centuries, at least, was the only works of its kind in the world.

    The knife as a tool or a weapon is one of the oldest artifacts in the world. It has been feared, loved and hated throughout the ages.

    This book tells about knife making and the forging of knives. The author had as a goal to record and illustrate the essentials of other edge tools. He hopes in this way to be able to contribute to the preservation of this part of his cultural heritage and that as many people as possible share in the creative joy of making a knife.
