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
