The following post was kindly sent in by Woodlore customer John Collett, who recently purchased the Julius Pettersson Hand Forged Knife Blade:
My name is John Collett and I recently bought this blade from your site. I was so pleased that I thought I would send you a picture of the finished article:
The main body is riendeer antler, with buffalo horn inserts. It’s a great little knife – hope I did it justice.
Keep up the good work.
Regards, John Collett
Very impressed with your finished article, because I myself love doing similar work.
I have always wanted to put reindeer antlers but don’t know where to get hold of them.
Would be great for any info where I can obtain them.
You’ve done an excellent job on the handle, truly stunning. Just one small point you might want to consider is to add a steel tip protector to the sheath. If you were to fall, a good quality sharp knife can pierce right through the end of the sheath and seriously injure. Fixing a steel tip on the end of the sheath protects against this.
The handle looks superb,
you definitely did it justice mate.
Just saw the knife, looks amazing mate
If it was down to me, I would say you did it far more than justice
