This has been a very well received instructional video that shows how I make a Loveless-style Sub-hilt Fighter. It covers everything from scribing the pattern out on a piece of 154-CM/ATS-34 to sharpening the blade upon completion. The video lasts 3 hours and 48 minutes and I'm pleased to be able to offer it to those who might be interested in how I go about making this type of knife - be it knifemaker, collector, purveyor or whomever would like to see how things are done in the Johnson shop.
