Switchblades: A Collector's Guide by Terry Shuler
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This comprehensive presentation of American switchblade knives is perfect for the knife enthusiast who is tired of the switchblade shy attitude in the world of cutlery collecting. Banned by congress in 1958, the American switchblade has a storied pastdemonized for its lightening fast deployment by gang members and outlaws in early American television and movies. But throughout the switchblade's 70 years of legal production in the United States, great American companies produced an elegant and practical tool that was used my many hardworking Americans on a daily basis. They were available for purchase at the local hardware store and even through mail order. 811 color images focus on the not-so-evil nature of the switchblade, documenting an exquisite variety of antique spring knives made by companies such as Schrade, Case, Remington Camillus, Colonial, Union, and Korn. Complete with the latest pricing, this is a must-have for any knife enthusiast
