- Norwegian Knife Making Bergland Hårvard$56.00
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.
Hardly any other country in the world comes close to Norway in terms of knife traditions. It is not so long ago that the knife was just as indespensable as car keys are today. The knife was the last thing you checked for before going to work.
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.
