Cody, WY (December 19, 2012) – The latest edition of the Shooter’s Bible Guide To Knives, recently released by Skyhorse Publishing, Inc., and now available for purchase, includes an exclusive interview with the American Knife & Tool Institute’s (AKTI) Executive Director Jan Billeb. Titled “The Legal Edge: What Every Knife Owner Should Know,” the interview offers perspective on the changing landscape of knife ownership across the United States, providing practical advice for knife owners and purchasers.
Author Roger Eckstine, an authority on the topics of firearms and edged tools, conducted the in-depth interview with Billeb to provide readers with an informational context on knives and knife laws and their effect on the individual’s right to possess and carry edged tools. Mr. Eckstine’s interview with Billeb may be found in the print edition of the Shooter’s Bible Guide To Knives and is now on the AKTI website thanks to permission from the publisher.
“I am pleased and appreciative that Skyhorse Publishing and Roger Eckstine have recognized the importance of understanding knife laws and promoting the proper use and carry of knives in the United States,” commented Billeb. “At AKTI we are continually seeking ways to promote interest in knives as valuable tools and enhance understanding and cooperation among the knife community, the general public, and local, state, and federal government.”
