Making a Bushcraft Knife: The Woodlore Clone
I’m super excited to have been able to spend a few days in the shop making this Bushcraft knife. This knife is a clone of Ray Mears’ design for the best all around bushcraft knife, the Woodlore. It’s made from 1/8” think O1 steel, black and “white” acrylic liners with Black walnut scales. The handle is fixed with 1/4” brass pins and lanyard tube. The handle is shaped coke bottle style, and the blade is Scandinavian ground. The over all length is 8 1/4” with a 4 1/2”handle. this knife will be my new go-to, and I will be using this as my personal bushcraft knife for the foreseeable future, that’s how happy I am with its outcome.
Let me know what you think in the comments, and if you own an actual Woodlore, let me know how this one compares to the original.
Keep an eye out for our follow up video where I make the bushcraft sheath to match.
