Hey guys!  I am going to start a similar thread on some differrent areas of the forum so we can keep these seperate (Knife in Knife, CQC in Hand to Hand, etc.)

What are your favorite books (could be historical, fictional, SciFi, etc.) which has some good knife fighting in it?  I guess the most common example of this for this area in SciFi would be "Dune" by Frank Herbert.  Please post others!

Heh, I'm half tempted to get the Pitch Black and Riddick books from just to see how the authors describe the knife fighting. Actually, I bet I would genuinely enjoy the Pitch Black book anyway.

The dragonriders of Pern carried knives, settled differences with them ; ))

     Again, like I said in the Hand to Hand forum, The Council Wars series by John Ringo.  They recreate the Roman Legions in those books, and proceed to get it on.
