Since sharpened tools emerged almost one million years ago, edged weapons have played an incredible role in the shaping of human history. This beautifully presented volume traces the history of daggers, knives and bayonets through to the 21st century. The directory features more than 350 examples, from ancient Egyptian flint knives to the rondel and ballock daggers of medieval Europe, and from 17th-century plug bayonets and the Highland dirk to the classic commando knives of World War II. It explores the development of daggers, fighting knives and bayonets from their origins in the Stone Age through to the latest utilitarian and creative designs. With over 700 photographs, the book is an indispensable resource for the serious collector and amateur enthusiast, and will fascinate anyone with an interest in historical weapons.
