NEW KNIFE BOOK: Ancient Knives of Southern Italy by Paolo Aldighieri

Post by john »

Hello Everyone,

NEW KNIFE BOOK: Ancient Knives of Southern Italy by Paolo Aldighieri
My book arrived yesterday; I ordered it on the Dec. 7 and DHL delivered it in two days. The book is written in Italian and English.
The book covers six of the seven provinces of southern Italy. It excludes Sicily.
There are 500 photos of 360 knives. The book includes a description for each knife and information about the regions and the craftsman who still make knives.
This book follows the exact format of his previous two books. I recommend it.
John
