Your Julius Pettersson Knives – Collection #2

Ever since we began stocking Julius Pettersson’s hand-forged knife blades, craftsmen and women the world over have been sending in photos of the superb finished knives they’ve made using these carbon steel blanks. From the more traditional reindeer antler, right through to reclaimed bowling balls, we’ve seen an incredible variety of materials being used to make an equally wide range of handle styles. Shown here are just a few of the more recent submissions:

Here is the Julius Pettersson Knife I completed in 2013. The choice of handle materials reflects my family history: The wood is black walnut, taken from my grandfather’s ranch in Oklahoma before the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers flooded most of the ranch to create Sardis Lake.

How To Make Your Own Bowsaw

_DSC7282

A folding saw is an essential item of equipment when travelling in woodland areas, but sometimes something a little larger can ease the workload and open up possibilities. Carrying a buck saw or pack saw is one way to address this, but if you want to travel a little lighter it is possible to carry just the blade and improvise a frame from the woodland; one of the many skills taught on the Woodlore Camp Craft course. The bending of the wood is usually facilitated by heating, but this is not always necessary as you will see.
