    If you like knives, then this book is going to make you drool like crazy. You can expect to see a ton of amazing knives designed by Professor Bram Frank. You will see many famous brands and world reknown knife makers mentioned in this book. You will get to know the person behind the designs. Reading about a kid who loved knives, knights and armor, who eventually became a professor of warrior culture, and then to go on and produce the ultimate tactical knife. The Gunting Knives have many features, each one designed for self-defense. We can go one more step further and say that the concepts utilized come from the teachings found in the Filipino Martial Arts. Some of these knife techniques are demonstrated in step by step photos in this book. It's just amazing how many different versions of the Gunting Knife exist. Many of the blade shapes are modeled after famous swords from history. There are so many different blade shapes, and the knives themselves have different forms, such as the... More > fixed blades, neck knives, Karambit/Desangut, women friendly versions, Balisong/butterfly knife, Straight razor, emergency rescue knife, short sword, spring assisted opening, trainers, and non edge self-defense versions. Over 30 years in the making, you definitely feel like no stone has been unturned. However this book features so much more! There are concept design sketches, showing so many knives that I wish were produced today. There are diagrams to show you exactly how the unique Puzzle Lock works. You'll even get a look into the factory where the latest Gunting knives are made. And after seeing all of that you start to get a glimpse to understand just how much work, blood sweat and tears has gone into the making of the Gunting style of knives available today. So if you already own one of the Gunting Knives, this book will make you appreciate it ten fold, and if you don't, by the end you will be itching to own one of the most significant tactical knives ever made.< Less
