Focusing on work from the twenty-first century, this captivating book features some of todays finest artists and metalsmiths and testifies to the continued relevance of this creative pursuit.

Among the works of art are helmets, elaborate knuckle-dusters, pendants, collars, rings, bracelets, metal jackets, and chain mail, all designed for safety.
