Chris Lucas’ Julius Pettersson Knife
Here’s another fantastic knife from one of our customers; we particularly like the compass detail on the butt of the handle:
Around a year ago I purchased a Julius Pettersson Knife from you. What a fantastic blade. As a chef I use quality carbon steel knives every day, and this is certainly a great blade. I waited so long to find the right materials in which to make the handle. I was able to obtain from a friend a nice burl piece of Tasmanian myrtle beech wood for the handle, along with pieces of fake ivory for the ends and spacers.
Rasping and sanding this timber was a mission and a half - it’s incredibly hard. A little scrimshaw compass and a coat of linseed and shellack to finish.
The sheath is a stitchless scandi design. This has definitely been a great project to work on and I would recommend it to anyone with or without prior wood working skills. Thanks again Woodlore and Julius Petterson for your great knife.
