Basic Hunters with J. Neilson

Basic Hunters with J. Neilson

James (J.) Neilson is an American Bladesmith Society Mastersmith who works from his "shop in the woods" in the endless mountains of northeastern Pennsylvania. There, he has been able to develop his longtime interests in knife making and forging into more than just a hobby. The quiet setting and scarcity of neighbors has been the perfect background to allow J. to develop his skills. He puts a great deal of effort into his wares, and he takes considerable pride in the finished products he produces.

In this video, J. demonstrates how to build a basic full tang hunting knife. Watch him as he shows everything from the lighting of the forge to applying the knife’s final finish.

Some of the topics covered are:

  • Blade Forging
  • Blade Grinding
  • Heat Treating
  • Adding Handles
  • Plus many knife making tips and suggestions
