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.

  This is a great quality blade. I had been wanting it for ages and now that I have it I am not disappointed. It's nicely crafted and now the only thing is I'm itching to get a handle made for it! Considering getting a second one to use for fishing too, it's that good.

  A great service, fast delivery. This is the first knife that I've made myself and soon found there's a lot of work involved. This has been a great project and a learning curve. I will post some pictures on the blog in the near future. The blade has a nice finish and I look forward to getting outdoors and putting it to use. Thanks again Woodlore Team.

  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.
