Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Book Of Swords (Hardcover)
This book is an excellent place to start if you have any intreast in swords there use and manufacture. Mr Reinhardts Love of the sword shines from every page Is self deprication aside he has built up an eviable body of knowlage and has use the swords to "play" and experement and this builds up his informative text if he says a viking sword will cut chain you know he has tried it. The book is written in an informal style that dose not use the most esoteric and technical names of the sword to confuse a beginer. The illistratiouns are well don and complement the text. The only drawback was Mr Reinhardt passing means that the book is much smaller than it would have been as the Edetor say the chapter on Aribic swords was never written. I would recomed this book to anyone with an intreast in swords.
