Descripción del producto

Descripción del producto

German swordsmiths have always been famous for their production of high-quality swords, making the swords themselves highly sought by collectors. Equally important to the knowledgeable collector are the histories of the men who designed, manufactured and sold these prized weapons. German Swords and Sword Makers presents the most information ever published on German sword and edged weapon makers from the Middle Ages to the present. It includes photos and illustrations of swords from Prussia, Bavaria, Wurttemberg, Saxony and Austria; more than 300 illustrations of German sword maker blade marks spanning five centuries; rare sketches and photos of German sword makers and their factories; a listing of German sword makers who exported swords to Union and Confederate dealers during the American Civil War; identification of sword and edged-weapon suppliers to Nazi Germany; and much more.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Helps in identifying makers' marks. 2 de diciembre de 2015
Por Gsaxon - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa blanda
I'm a collector and I found this book to be very useful in identifying the German makers and their marks. Like any other reference book, this is not an encyclopedia, and you do need to use other reference books in conjunction with this one.
A section contains descriptions of Royal Cypher Marks which I found very useful.
The beginning of the book just lists the names of makers, their cities and periods of operation, along with the associated cutlers, blade grinders, hilt makers, and retailers. I do not find this to be very useful unless I was a historian.
But there is a long list of makers and illustrations of their marks. This book, in conjunction with Anthony Carter's" Sword & Knife Makers of Germany 1851-2000; A-L" will provide much material in identifying swords. It fills the gap left when Mr. Carter did not finish the 2nd part of his work.
I recommend it.

Por GregK - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Versión Kindle
This is a fair book. Overall it does provide history of German blade-smithing and lists most of the German sword marks. The book provides good facts, but lacks completeness of the sword manufacturers and is missing a number of sword-makers. The sword illustrations are terrible, the photos are very few and are of poor to average quality. The bibliography is absent and some facts are somewhat questionable. If you are a collector or dealer, like me, this book is OK at best. The author could have done a much better job.

2.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas About Swordmakers, not swords, not swordmaking. 5 de octubre de 2003
Por Un cliente - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa blanda
This is a book about German swordmakers. It contains very little information about swords in the technical sense, e.g. construction methods or design evolution. There is a listing of the swordmakers names, dates of swordmaking and family connections. There are many pictures of Solingen factories and other historical venues. There is a list of maker's marks which does not seem to be complete nor is it presented as such. There is not much in the way of pictures of swords showing types, characteristic designs, patterns or maker innovations. The photos are of questionable quality and most of the pictures are illustrations with little provenance. Some interesting information on which makers also exported to the U.S. is included. As is usual these days, there is no appendix or detailed Table of Contents. A good book for historians but not so good for the collector.
