MAKING DO: VOLUME FOUR: THE DO-IT-YOURSELF NECK KNIFE Looking for a simple, all-purpose utility/defensive knife to add to your survival toolbox that you can make at home? This original video production from Paladin Press will show you how to turn found materials into a practical, quality tool. In it, knifemaker and survival expert Jason Hawk walks you through the materials, construction and practical applications of your very own neck knife. Hawk starts by covering the types of metals suitable for knife manufacture, and then goes right into shaping and forming the edge. From there, using a classic wrapping technique common to the Japanese katana, he teaches you how to make a strong, long-lasting handle out of sturdy, inexpensive cordage. Using commonly found plastics (known as "poor man's Kydex"), he also shows you how to construct a durable sheath for carry and storage. How many items do you own and carry that you've personally made with your own two hands? With a little hard work, a few tools and some inexpensive materials, you can craft a knife that will serve you well for as long as you need it.ABOUT THE AUTHOR:Jason Hawk is a neo-tribal weapons specialist, a master bladesmith, & a primitive-skills instructor. A fourth-generation blacksmith, Jason learned these skills from his grandfather & father, who was a Special Forces instructor. By age 10, Jason was skilled at making traps, spears, bows, & knives, & received his Colorado guiding license on his 16th birthday.Jason has been making his own weapons & tools for 26 years & instructing forging & primitive living skills for 20 years. Among his students are military & law enforcement personnel. For the past two years, the Navajo Nation has contracted him to instruct their youth in forging, neo-tribal weapons, & primitive living skills. Jason has always relied on these skills to feed his family, including snaring rabbits in the desert & even taking a javelina with a blowgun, & he likes to serve his guests roadkill. The strangest forge he ever made was fashioned from a shoelace, an elk leg bone, & a T-shirt. He used two rocks for the hammer & anvil, & cow patties for the fuel. It was primitive, but it worked& that's the point of his Making Do series. ISBN: 0-PAL-MD4DVD publish date: 06/30/2011
