    Modern not historical

    This is an excellent book, but I hasten to mention that it is for reproduction sword collectors. I wouldn't want anyone to buy it thinking it was a historical text. It is a great book in its own right, though with fantastic pictures of fine craftsmanship and plenty of information on swordsmiths throughout the US and Europe (more predominantly the US).
