How To Forge Clyde Fischer Blades

As a beginner knifemaker, you need to read this book. To be a successful knife maker, not only will you have to learn how to make knives you will have to learn how to sell them. Clyde had famous hunters and writers recommending his knives in newspapers, and Field and Stream Magazines.To be a member of the Knifemakers Guild you will have to submit to the board promotional materials in the form of a Catalog of your knives. Clyde had authored three excellent catalogs promoting his knives.The first half of this book is about Clyde Edward Fischer's life. The second half is about how I made thirteen of his knives. I would suggest that a beginner bladesmith should take the American Bladesmith Society's "Introduction to Bladesmithing". Class. It is a two-week class that will teach you how to forge, grind, heat treat and finish knife blades. The ABS also teach a one week "Handles and Guards" Class.Clyde had his Grandfather's blacksmith's shop consisting of a bellows forge, anvil, hammers and tongs. At first, he had an industrial 6-inch diameter grindstone. Later, I think he purchased a 2X72-inch belt grinder. He may have added a buffer for polishing the blades. A powered buffer is the most dangerous machine in a knifemakers shop. It has been known to take a blade from one's hand and drive it into your groin, foot or some other body part. I would suggest that you learn to hand finish the blades. Do not buy a powered buffer.As an Apprentice, Journeyman or Master Bladesmith, I would recommend that you recreate some of the Fisher knives. They are well designed for their purpose and are good looking. They are as appealing today as they were when Clyde made them. I sold the knives that I made in a short period of time.

Some survival guides explain the basics of how to make primitive tools. But do you know how to actually successful hunt with spear, throwing stick, bola, or primitive bow? Making tools that you do not know how to hunt with will not get you to meat. If you’re hunting with primitive weapons, especially crude survival weapons you’ve made in the field under actual survival conditions, you must adapt your strategy to the weapons available or go hungry. Author James M. Ayres grew up in the Midwest hunting squirrels, rabbits, and other small game with bows, spears, atlatls, and bolas he made myself. He has hunted with bow, spear, net, and other primitive weapons with the Lacandon in Yucatán, the Igorots in the Philippines, the K’iche’ in Guatemala, the Sasak in Indonesia, and others. In Survival Knives, he shares his knowledge so you, too, can survive using such tools and weapons. It’s not enough to have a knife and know how to make basic hunting weapons. That’s craftsmanship—not survival. Nor is it enough simply to have a knife when trapped in an emergency situation, like a collapsed building. You need to know how to conserve your knife and use it properly to escape so that it will not break and you are not injured. Learn how to use survival knives, and how to use the tools and weapons you can make with the knife—not only in wilderness, but also in urban areas, foreign countries, and disaster zones such as earthquakes, floods, fires, and civil insurrections.
