NEW BOOK on VAN ADESTINE KNIVES released today

Hello All, If this is not the correct place to share this info, please direct it accordingly.

I wanted to announce the completion of my NEW BOOK on VAN ADESTINE knives released this Labor Day Weekend. (again I'm sorry that the first book SOLD OUT so quickly with so many left wanting)

Robert Van Adestine made many hand forged knives for WWII soldiers.

This New Book is much more detailed than my first book from 2008 and includes 50 knives and other items in the collection, with details and history about each.

This is a "Hard Cover" Limited Edition showing over 2-1/2 times as many knives as my first book. see this link for more info. I'd be happy to answer any questions.

Probably not the right forum, so I'm moving it to a more appropriate location. B)

I'm more of a collector of Hand Forged knives ... I've told Robert Van Adestine's story because he was a pioneering maker and he lived here in Wisconsin. He contributed much to the WWII War effort with his hand forged Military Fighting knives.

The book is dedicated to Robert Van Adestine's Grandson who passed away 5 years ago.

The book has been delayed about 10 days - These 2 recently acquired knives were hastily added to the study.

One is a Hunter and the other is a WWII Double Edge Fighter.

These represent Knife no.50 and no.51 added to the study.

Information about these (and 49 others) are included in the book.

Here are 10 WWII Van Adestine Fighting knives that have been collected. The WWII Van Adestine Fighter is likely the rarest of all the WWII U.S. Military Fighting knives. The 6th knife from the left is the latest addition, but unfortunately it is not included in the book. It arrived a 2 weeks after the book was released for publication. A separate "update page" can be obtained from the Author.
