The November 2019 issue of Knife Magazine should be shipping from the printer today, and will reach subscriber mailboxes in the next week to ten days.
This issue features knifemaker and designer Les George, whose style is heavily influenced by military history and his own experience as a Marine EOD veteran. This is true for the custom knives he makes, his mid-tech designs, and his many designs for Kershaw and Zero Tolerance.
About the Cover: Two Les George customs that draw inspiration
from historic military knives. At left is his version of the M1918 Mark
1 trench knife from WWI with grade 5 titanium handle, cast from
a 3D scan of an original LF&C handle. The blade steel is CPM3V
and the tang nut is heat treated D2. At right, a custom V-14 dagger
inspired by the OSS Stiletto of WWII (among others); this one has
machined titanium handles and a CTS-XHP blade.
But wait, there’s more…
As always, the issue is chock full of articles on both historical and modern knives and accessories as well as our monthly columns from Bruce Voyles, AKTI, Knife Rights, Bernard Levine, and of course our “Artistry in Knives” center-poster featuring some of the most incredible eye candy the knife world has to offer.
The issue will be posted to our online archive early next week, where Premium Online Members will be able to find it under The Vault–>Magazine Archives tab at the top of the page.
