Knife Engineering: Steel, Heat Treating, and Geometry by Dr. Larrin Thomas Book

Written by Dr. Larrin Thomas, writer of KnifeSteelNerds.com, this book is a great resource for any that is a knife and steel enthusiast or someone in the business of selling. Written by truly a unbias and educated metallurgist who writes on the subject of steel and its processing, cutting performance, geometry, and all kinds of other subjects we knife folks study. Knife Engineering: Steel, Heat Treating, and Geometry is a 442-page tome that does a great job of going over the purely scientific testing of everything that makes a knife cut.

Knife Engineering Book covers all of these questions and more are answered by a metallurgist who grew up around the knife industry. Note: The book now has conversions to Celsius throughout after feedback from Global readers.
