After attending our Fundamental Bushcraft course last year, Woodlore customer Stan Intihar had a go at making his very own knife for the first time, with great results:
Here are some pics of my completed knife and leather sheath; a carbon steel Enzo blade and desert ironwood handle with red liners:
I used two excellent online tutorials and they turned our purdy good, I reckon. Leather stamping is quite addictive, too, I found out… as did my wife and kids!
I’ve used the knife plenty of times already and love it. Have also settled on soft rush being my favourite “go to” firesteel lighting tinder; that stuff is everywhere and is just brilliant at taking sparks.
All the best,
