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.

  Hello to all and a special hello to one of my idols, Mr. Ray Mears. My Julius Pettersson knife arrived in the mail in a very timely manner which I was very pleased about. as for the knife itself, the quality of the blade is exquisite and the edge is a strong razor (i actually shaved with the blade and it worked great. the fact that I have to make my own handle is terrific. I will know this knife better than any other I have owned because I have a hand in the making and completion of this knife. I will post on the blog when I have finished and filed the handle along with pics of the process in making it. Thanks again. It is wonderful to own a worthy bushcraft knife that i can take on all my trips that i can rely on (it carves and batons through wood like it was butter.

  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.

  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!

  I was kindly given this blade on Christmas Day. I'm about to craft my handle for it this Autumn, and having looked over it thoroughly again, since it's been patiently waiting in my drawer for a handle, I'm just as impressed as when I first opened the box by the Christmas tree! The craftmanship by Julius is just beautiful. The knife is as light as a feather - razor sharp too. On the bevel, you can actually see the harder steel in between the two softer steels! The face of the blade has a very traditional look as well. The spine of the knife is just right, and i'm comfident it will throw great sparks from a Ferro Rod. I think I'm going to go for a traditional Sami handle and sheath. Fingers crossed I should have the knife completed by Winter!
