, the black and white monthly knife tabloid which we have known and (usually) loved since September 1977, is about to become the new full color KNIFE
magazine, starting with the November 2015 issue.
Everyone who receives Knife World
will have their subscriptions fulfilled with KNIFE
Magazine. The content will be similar to Knife World, just a whole lot prettier... and this month there are 16 additional pages to enjoy -- 52 pages total, all of them in full color. Included will be my 455th monthly installment of "Whut Izzit," for the first time in color.
New subscriptions have to be in by Thursday morning, October 8, to receive the inaugural issue of Knife
. Link below.
Magazine will be offered by subscription only, $29.95 per year U.S. (12 monthly issues). It's an oversized (9.5 x 13"), full color, glossy magazine -- 50% larger than a standard magazine. A big & beautiful specialty publication for dedicated knife enthusiasts.
