Steele, it presents an international cross section of knife cultures and styles?from the heroic legacy of America’s bowie knife to the lethal techniques of the kukri-wielding Gurkhas of Nepal?and features essential empty-hand techniques, exercises to improve fighting skills, and advice on choosing the right knife.
