I've been looking for Joe Keesler's book on handles and guards, or is it guards and handles?

 

I haven't been able to find it on Amazon.com, bookfinders, the ABS website, (I even asked them in an email), or just a general search under Google.

 

Can anyone direct me to a site where I might purhcase it?

 

Thanks, Art

It's a terrific book I recomend it to anyone....I was fortunate enough to take Mr Keeslars "Handles & Guards" course at the ABS school....I was amazed at how much I learned and how much my knives improved after taking it......Great course for any knifemaker!...
