Knifemakers You’ll Read About
Pierre Reverdy & Nicole Piel
C. Gray Taylor
* During the production of this book, Cutlery Hall-Of-Fame member Tony Bose passed away. Rather than omit him from the book, we decided the best
way to recognize his immense knifemaking talent was to include his profile. After you read about him and his knives, we think you will agree it was the right decision.
