Books on bladesmithing

Recommended Posts

I've finished up a couple of knives, and tomahawks so far. I want to further my education on forging blades. If you would be so kind, could you tell me some of the most useful books you have read on the subject.

I must say I'm also a fan of Jim Hrisoulas, 2 more of his books well worth the read

The Master Bladesmith - Advanced Studies In Steel
The Pattern Welded Blade - Artistry In Iron

Cheers.

And living in the United States your local public library is probably part of ILL (Inter Library Loan) where you can check out books from a wide range of other libraries---our small town rural library has over 90 other libraries we can access including several university libraries and I can easily check out books I had a 4 year standing order for on Amazon with no hits!

It's a great way to pretest books before deciding to buy your own copy!

Last time I used it I had to pay $1 per book and got to keep them for 3 weeks.

You are paying for your local public library---USE IT!
