Description

As a beginner, you need to read this book. The first half of this book is about Clyde Edward Fischer’s life. The second half is about how I made thirteen of his knives. As an Apprentice, Journeyman or Master Bladesmith, I would recommend that you recreate some of the Fischer knives. They are well designed for their purpose and are good looking. They are as appealing today as they were when Clyde made them.

Fischer’s knives combine beauty with function, and one can visualize them mellowing, like a fine wine, as years go by in the field. they are what we might call “purist’s knives,” in that he has taken native materials, functional design, and a strong background in American style craftsmanship to produce them.” – from 1974 Knife Digest.
