Collecting Case Knives by Steve Pfeiffer, 2009
The pictures are great. The info about Case Tang markings is invaluable. The listing of Case Knives by number with descriptive info is second to none. The price guide info helps to evaluate your collection and judge future purchases. Highly recommended for the new as well as seasoned collector
