How To Make A DIY Bushcraft Knife
Using Basic Workshop Tools
I thought it was about time I tried my hand at making myself a decent bushcraft knife, and in this article I have added my full video of: 'How To Make DIY Bushcraft Knife Using Basic Workshop Tools And Equipment', for you to follow along with me and see how I completed the knife show above.
It took me a little while to complete, and actually, being patient and taking your time is a key factor when making your own knife. If you just steam ahead and rush it, there's a good chance of making a few mistakes.
To be honest, if you cant find what your looking for at English Homemade Knives then it probably doesn't exist..!
There was a massive choice of materials to choose from, but once I had selected my materials it was full stream ahead with the build.
It was, of course, a massive learning curve for me as I have never made a knife before and I found starting this way, with buying the basic equipment, meant I could select exactly the type of knife I wanted, and exactly the style I liked as well.
For anyone thinking of making their own bushcraft knife, I think this is probably the best way to go about it.
Blade selection is very important and I listened to Chris's advice and selected the Enzo Trapper as it fitted exactly what type of knife I wanted to finish off with.
Explaining the whole process would take forever, so I have produced a full video for those of you that are interested in making your own DIY bushcraft knife like I have done.
