Bush Craft Knifemaking tutorial start to finish. Learn how to make handmade knives and what tools, materials and supplies you will need to make a unique bushcraft knife.

Bruce Cheaney takes you through the steps of making a sure enough handmade knife that can be used for bushcraft & hunting. Some of the tools materials and supplies for knife making are a belt grinder either a 1x42 or a 2x72 preferably a 2"X72" for grinding out the knife blank as well hollow grinding a belt sander like this will save you many hours of work by being able to grind your knife out in a timely manner. Norton sanding belts seem to work the best for me for heavy stock removal then I move onto Klingspor J-Flex belts 80 grit through 120 and 320 I finish up using 3M Trizact belts and usually don't even have to use a cotton buffing wheel and compound.

I purchase my knifemaking supplies from a supplier here in the central United States called Jantz Knife Making Supplies they stock just about anything a knife maker might need for making knives such as knife steel and handle material. You can also find enough parts to maker your own belt grinder or purchase a Bader Grinder B-III or Burr King Knifemaker Machine.

I have a Baldor Buffer one is a #BL114 and a #BL333 would be another good choice that you could ad to your knife shop. I also like to use 3M Scotch Brite Wheels like a IW81LD 8X1X3" this also comes from Jantz and really works good for removing scratches from steel blades and brass knife guards.

This is a handmade knife that is made to be used in the wilderness and hunting or survival.

You can find all kinds of steel to make your own Bushcraft Knife Blade out of like plow disc, crosscut saw blades, saw mill blades, car leaf springs, and even flat files. Yes you can buy Bushcraft Knives but there is much more pride in ownership if you hand make a knife yourself out of steel you can find laying around or in the scrap pile.

Knife handles can be made out of Dear Stag, Elk Horn, Bull Horn, Cow Bone and woods such as Bodark & Coca Bola and many other species.

With just a little effort you can make your custom Bushcraft Knife Sheath out of saddle skirting or strap leather and either hand sew the sheath or lace it together with Indian tan lace leather or Kangaroo lace either one will work very good.
