Production knife manufacturers innovate to maintain their edge in a competitive marketplace and this annual reference is the only place to find their latest innovations. It also provides a complete selection of currently available sporting knives, knife gear and knife accessories. Knife listings cover every factory and semi-production knife in existence. A host of stories delve into today's popular topics, including how knives work, why they work, what features are attractive to knife buyers, which steels work and why, and how the handles, guards, frames, and tangs hold up.
