A fine example of a finished knife made using the Julius Pettersson blade (Click for full size)

The Julius Pettersson Hand Forged Knife Blade makes an excellent gift or personal project for those of you who are interested in getting started in knife making. The beautifully-made blade, produced by the esteemed Swedish blacksmith Julius Pettersson, comes ready to be fitted with a handle of your choosing. For an idea of what can be done with this blade, take a look at some of the pictures our customers have sent in on the Woodlore Blog.

These blades were featured in the 'Sweden' episode of Ray Mears Bushcraft Survival Series 2, when Ray visited the traditional forge of Julius Pettersson. Each blade features the exclusive Ray Mears 'Snowshoe' logo along with Julius' own signature stamp.

We recommend sourcing the book Antlerknife, which is sadly out of print at this time. This book offers an in-depth guide to making a handle for this style of blade. Other ideal partners to this blade are the antler pieces that we stock, sold in Rolls and L-Shape.

We'd love to see how you get on with your knife-making, whether you're a complete beginner or an expert. E-mail us your photos and you may see them featured on the Woodlore Blog.

Keep your knife blade sharp by using one of our whetstones - either the DC3 or DC4.

I am extremely happy with the Julius Pettersson knife. I like the width and the rugged finish it has to it. The only change I would make to this knife if I were to order a special one-off is that I would ask for a slightly wider tang to add a bit more weight to it. But that is just a slight personal preference and it could be compensated by a hevier choice of material for the handle. Overall, for what it is and the cost, I am over the moon with it.

It's a nice and sharp blade, but just a bit too small.

Good quality blade, very happy with my purchase. Looking forward to making the handle. Thought the customer service was excellent and the added write up on current knife law is very informative. Many thanks.

Brilliant product. Would reccomend.
Julius Pettersson Hand Forged Knife Blade reviewed by customer Rebecca Weeks on 2nd October, 2013
Lovely blade. Really easy to make into a nice knife, so great value too. The parts for the handle cost me around £15. I used olive wood and Butterscotch buffalo horn for spacers (took around 3 hours). Highly recommended!

The technique used in the manufacture of this blade is explained in the 'Sweden' episode that is referred to in the product description. It involves wrapping a hard steel with a soft steel and forging the two together. The soft steel gives the knife strength. It is (continued...)

Amazingly good quality, comes razor sharp and holds an edge for ages. Plus being able to form your own handle really is a bonus.
Julius Pettersson Hand Forged Knife Blade reviewed by customer Brian Lees on 1st June, 2010
Put simply, this is the sharpest and most original blade I have had the pleasure to own. Put together with the Antler pieces and some time, one can create their own unique knife.
