Bushcraft knife making with Bruce Cheaney Gainesville, Texas http://www.BushcraftMax.com
Bruce takes you through the steps of making a sure enuff handmade knife that can be used for bushcraft & hunting.
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 if you have question about leathercraft you can ask questions at the LeathercraftBlog http://www.LeathercraftBlog.com

New time lapse Bushcraft knife making video clip;
- @Josh Hawley He's making bushcraft knives... You interpreted it as bad english, but its good english...
- Those are awesome!
- How is it 'bushcraft' if you are doing everything in the shop?
- Bruce amazing work turning a part of old old scrap into something of such quality with a personal touch...to me a knifes just a knife but watching you make it and seeing the work put into it made me appreciate it... well done...nice work
- What kind of metal is that?
- Wow what are the odds finding a video likes this were I am from the same area
- Absolutely beautiful!! Where can I get one?
- after otherwise the edge is too delicate to temper
- you sir do some of the most beautiful work I have ever seen. im new to knife making and I hope I can one day reach this level of craftsmanship
- Great knife. Good to see something like this made.
- Great looking sheath.
- do you make the final sharpening before tempering or after ?
- Thank You very much....
- Looks good. I hope it serves it's owner well. I like that you put a beefy handle on there. Modern knives are getting smaller handles; which is not much help if you happen to have gloves and want to use a knife at the same time. Sheath is shown briefly at the end but is obviously first rate.
- Wonderful Blade man, wish I could craft myself one of those, but alas I lack the skill and tools, let alone my apt manager would be pissed at the noise. :P
- that knife is beautiful. well done sir
- brilliant, thankyou sir!!
- He said that he used Olive Oil.
- I punched number five holes and laced it up with Kangaroo 1/4" chocolate brown lace that I got from the Weaver Leather Company.
Thank You for your comment.
- I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW HOW TO DO THE STITCHING THAT YOU USED ON THE SHEATH. I'M TALKING ABOUT THE BLACK STITCHING ? ANY POINTERS OR HELP WOULD BE VERY MUCH APPRECIATED. I ENJOYED YOU VIDEO VERY NICE WORK !! THANK YOU
- I think it's oil
- best knife video on youtube.
- how much would you charge to make one and send it
