Goin’s Encyclopedia

I’m a new member and an amateur collector of many years, but just now really enjoying the knowledge of the knives I like. I have been told by a very knowledgeable friend that I need a Goin’s Encyclopedia of Knife Markings, but all I find are $100+. Does anyone know where this book can be had cheaper? I’m a big fan of having a book handy for my hobby.Thanks, JohnColossians 3:17See More
