How to make a knife!
Josh “The 7 P’s of Survival”
Want To learn How to Make A Knife? Listen in as I speak with James Whales (Founder and proprietor of Indy Hammered Knives) about his upcoming knife making classes and what the process students will learn in the class. We will also talk about a few of his exciting new products (one of which is the perfect present for someone who is striving to become self reliant) and possibly a sneak peak at a Black Friday/Cyber Monday/Christmas Deal from IHK!
We will start off the show talking about his brand new Complete Knife Kit- IHK Skinner (find out more information Here), which I believe is the perfect gift for anyone who wants to learn about knife making or is interested in becoming more self reliant. The kit comes with the following items: 1) 8” IHK Skinner blade (pre shaped, sharpened and ready to go)- the blade is 4” and 8” overall; 2) Book Matched scales (handle material) of your choice- I personally love the ironwood that came on my IHK Bush Clever; 3) Brass Mosaic Pin and Brass Lanyard Tube cut to length; 4) Two ton two part epoxy in corked glass tubes; 5) Custom skinner sheath by Samson Leather; 6) Step-By-Step Instructions- Illustrated; 7) Letter of Authenticity; 8) Care Card Instructions on maintaining your high carbon steel blade; and 9) Beautiful Wooden Gift Box with brass hardware and latch. James has taken care of all the tricky parts of the process and has essentially left you the ability to craft a the scales to your liking.
We will then turn to the Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) Survival Knife. The TEK has two sheath options currently: 1) the coyote tactical sheath with front pouch large enough for an Altoids sized tin complete with ferro rod w/ bungee cordage, four waterproof fire starters and jute twine or 2) A leather hip sheath with IHK logo. This knife and kit look to be an excellent combination for self reliance and I look forward to testing it out in the very near future (be sure to keep an eye out for that review within a week or two.
After the break we will come back and talk about the brad new Indy Hammered Knives Knife Making Class. The class will be taught using the same materials and process James uses to produce his one of a kind hammer forged knives. We will walk our way through the entire knife making class process, talk about what you will need to bring and what you can expect to learn while you are there.
Before we close I will be giving James a chance to tell you about a few Black Friday/Cyber Monday/Christmas/Gift Ideas that are must haves for everyone’s Christmas shopping list! If you haven’t had a chance to check out the IHK Bush Clever (see my review here)or the 18th century blanket roll (see it here) I hope you will check them out as I’m sure they would be a great give for anyone that enjoys the outdoors on your Christmas list.
