The 7 P's Of Survival Radio Show: How To Make A Knife (11/24/2015)

This past week (11/24/15) on my live show we talked with James Wahls of Indy Hammered Knives about the his newest two knives (one of which is the perfect Christmas Present for the bushcrafter/survivalist/self-reliant, outdoorsman on your list) and then we talked about his upcoming knife making class and what it would consist of. Be sure to listen to the show below for the replay of this great introduction to a few great Indy Hammered Knives and his knife making class and process.

Want To learn How to Make A Knife? Listen in as I speak with James Whales (Founder and proprietor of Indy Hammered Knives) about his upcoming knife making classes and what the process students will learn in the class. We will also talk about a few of his exciting new products (one of which is the perfect present for someone who is striving to become self reliant) and possibly a sneak peak at a Black Friday/Cyber Monday/Christmas Deal from IHK!

We will start off the show talking about his brand new Complete Knife Kit- IHK Skinner (find out more information Here), which I believe is the perfect gift for anyone who wants to learn about knife making or is interested in becoming more self reliant. The kit comes with the following items: 1) 8” IHK Skinner blade (pre shaped, sharpened and ready to go)- the blade is 4” and 8” overall; 2) Book Matched scales (handle material) of your choice- I personally love the ironwood that came on my IHK Bush Clever; 3) Brass Mosaic Pin and Brass Lanyard Tube cut to length; 4) Two ton two part epoxy in corked glass tubes; 5) Custom skinner sheath by Samson Leather; 6) Step-By-Step Instructions- Illustrated; 7) Letter of Authenticity; 8) Care Card Instructions on maintaining your high carbon steel blade; and 9) Beautiful Wooden Gift Box with brass hardware and latch. James has taken care of all the tricky parts of the process and has essentially left you the ability to craft a the scales to your liking.

We will then turn to the Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) Survival Knife. The TEK has two sheath options currently: 1) the coyote tactical sheath with front pouch large enough for an Altoids sized tin complete with ferro rod w/ bungee cordage, four waterproof fire starters and jute twine or 2) A leather hip sheath with IHK logo. This knife and kit look to be an excellent combination for self reliance and I look forward to testing it out in the very near future (be sure to keep an eye out for that review within a week or two.

After the break we will come back and talk about the brad new Indy Hammered Knives Knife Making Class. The class will be taught using the same materials and process James uses to produce his one of a kind hammer forged knives. We will walk our way through the entire knife making class process, talk about what you will need to bring and what you can expect to learn while you are there.
Before we close I will be giving James a chance to tell you about a few Black Friday/Cyber Monday/Christmas/Gift Ideas that are must haves for everyone’s Christmas shopping list! If you haven’t had a chance to check out the IHK Bush Clever (see my review here)or the 18th century blanket roll (see it here) I hope you will check them out as I’m sure they would be a great give for anyone that enjoys the outdoors on your Christmas list.

About The 7 P’s Of Survival show!
Join Josh of the 7 P’s Survival Blog in the studio every Tuesday night at 9pm Eastern Time. This is a live show where you can interact and engage with Josh and His guests (Josh often invites his friends from the preparedness community to dig into pertinent topics). You can interact via chat room or by calling into the show (we would love to hear from you!). Each week regardless of whether there is a guest for the show Josh will dig into current events and legal issues which relate to preparedness, update you on what is going on with his blog/survival school and review the happenings of various survival related television programming.
Josh runs the 7p’s Survival Blog, JPS Consulting LLC (Oil & Gas Law, Business Strategy, Emergency Response, Etc.), A Survival School (Coming fall of 2015) and is working on his first survival related book (he has published several books on incident command and legal issues for emergency response agencies). Josh has worked in emergency response since 1999 serving as a fire chief and a variety of other capacities throughout his career. Josh holds a Doctor of Juris Prudence degree from the West Virginia University College of Law along with a BSBAd’s in Marketing and Management from West Virginia University College of Business and Economics. He also holds hundreds of emergency response related certifications many at the national level. He has taught at a wide variety of emergency response conferences and for various state and federal agencies mostly in the area of incident management, technical rescue and hazardous materials mitigation.

This show will explore a wide variety of topics including: legal issues in preparedness, wilderness skills (including a weekly skill challenge- A youtube video will be shared each week demonstrating a skill for listeners to review and post their responses), self reliant skills, gear reviews and interviews with manufactures, current events, Q & A with fellow bloggers and YouTuber’s, emergency response and disaster preparedness and recovery.

So what are the 7 P’s? The 7 P’s concept is derived from the military and emergency response where the pneumonic stands for the following: Prior, Proper, Planning, Prevents, Piss, Poor, Performance. This old adage stuck with Josh since his early days in the fire service and resonated with him so much it became his approach to preparedness and wilderness survival right along with his emergency response career.
