I've mentioned previously that I've been making wood carving knives for the local carving community.  But my reason for building the forge and searching for a "proper" anvil is because I want to venture into the larger of the relatives.............."full-sized" knives. :D  I know there are lots of books on the subject of knife making, but today I ordered "The Wonder of Knifemaking" by Wayne Goddard.  Several people have recommended it as a pretty good and understandable book for the newly inspired knife maker.  I'm sure some of you either have it or have read it.  Anyone care to comment on it's contents sort of as a mini-review?

I'm not very familiar with Wayne Goddards book. I have leafed through it and it seems like a decent book and as you said Fairly easy to understand. Steve Sells and Jim Hrisoulas both have written exceptional books on bladesmithing. They are both members here. A pm to both of them would be my suggestion as to where to obtain a copy of their respective books.
