Knife Engineering: Steel, Heat Treating, and Geometry. – Dr. Larrin Thomas (Amazon)

How can you have a list of helpful knifemaking books and this not be number 1?  Dr. Larrin Thomas did an excellent job pulling together a lot of information about knives and putting it all in one place.

The Story of Knife Steel: Innovators Behind Modern Damascus and Super Steels – Dr. Larrin Thomas (Amazon)

Not much of a better way to say it than this!

“This book is truly an incredible feat. No other work I’ve run across is this ambitious or expansive. The drama of the personalities of different knifemakers will draw everyone in. The cumulative history is what makes it unique, and in my opinion, groundbreaking. There’s a good mix of it all, and it follows a clean path through the timeline.”
-Knifemaker Matthew Gregory
