In 2002, Arnoldsche published the volume Historic Cutlery: Changing Shapes from the Palaeolithic to the 20th Century,
the first compilation of the renowned Amme Collection. In 2007 the comprehensive supplementary volume Historic Cutlery II
followed. This publication completes the series: Historic Cutlery III: From the Early Period until around 1600.
Using a synoptic and fundamentally new concept of presentation, the author provides a fascinating overview of his entire collection. The astounding diversity of forms, especially of knives from the late Middle Ages, is presented in this overview for the first time in an impressive and artistic arrangement, with full-page colour plates. The Hamburg photographer Helge Mundt succeeded in taking brilliant photos, showing the objects in their full splendour.
