Newsletter Archives

The Newsletter Archives gives you access to articles and features that not only cover the development of automatic knives but actually helped shape the environment of automatic knife collecting we enjoy today.

Starting in 1992 (pre-internet) “The Automatic Knife Resource Guide and Newsletter” was a unique resource for automatic knife collectors, makers, and sellers. “The Newsletter” documented the development of the most noted names in the automatic knife world, Pro-Tech, Microtech, Mikov, Al Mar including vintage automatics dating back to 1780. Enlightening articles and features by Bubba, Prof. Dan Fuller, Pete McMickle and of course Sheldon’s insights and observations. No serious automatic knife collector should be without this essential compilation of Spring Steel.

All the 45 historical editions of this groundbreaking tabloid are available in digital form, ready to download. Each issue has been meticulously restored with original photos.
