I am fortunate to be able to offer a copy of the very hard to obtain: British and Commonwealth Military Knives by Ron Flook for sale. These books do not come along every day.
This is a chance for some lucky collector to add it to their library!
This book is the Bible for collectors of British and Commonwealth Military knives. It has an incredible amount of information and photographs to help identify the various knives and machetes used by Commonwealth troops. No serious collector should be without this book.
It has an invaluable section on Australian knives.
My copy of this book is the most useful book in my collection and I refer to it almost daily.
This book is hard to obtain in any condition.
This copy is in new condition. I doubt if it has been opened often and seriously read. It certainly has not been used as a reference manual on a regular basis.
I am not aware of any other copies being available for sale anywhere else in Australia. To obtain a copy from overseas will cost significantly more than the asking price. The value of these books has skyrocketed in recent times. It is hard to find one available anywhere for under $350.00
I am happy to post overseas. Please do not hesitate to ask me for postage to your country.
If you are looking for a copy of this book, send me an email and I will let you know when I get another one.
