Witchblade.com's "Fire Genie"

Nov 7, 1999
Hey Guys….

I just received my “Fire Genie” from Rik Palm of Witchblades.com http://www.witchblades.com


The Fire Genie is an Arrowhead, Improvised knife,Scraper,and fire Starting Tool disguised as a smart looking little piece of jewelry.

The Genie itself is a hand forged arrowhead using a primitive charcoal forge. The face is drilled and filed in by hand as well as the cutting edge itself.

The leather Fob of the Genie is hand stitched and embellished with twisted fringes along the bottom. The pouch incorporates a small pocket inside which can be used for tinder,, and also comes with a 4mm X 50mm Ferrocerium rod that is mounted horizontally across the top of the pouch in a small sleeve.

The entire Fire Genie is 4” X 2” in length. Actually a lot smaller than I thought it was going to be. It makes an interesting necklace that I’m sure will attract some attention.

My wife and 7 year old have already been eyeing it,, so I’ll have to keep it safely out of reach..

As with all fine works of art each Fire Genie is signed and dated on the back.

The Fire Genie is a Direct result of the Hoods Woods Vol#9 Primitive knifemaking video with Guests Tia Goo and Tim Lively.

If you want to learn primitive knife forging,, This is the Video for you.
Simple down to earth Stuff.

Rik has shown time and time again his Incredible artistic talents, from Graphic arts to a number of primitive and outdoors skills.

The Woodsmaster videos have in my belief brought these skills to the surface within Rik, as I have watched him many months ago file by hand his very first knife.

I had the honor to sheath that first knife of Rik’s and believe wholeheartedly that this is one person who in a few short years will be a very skilled bladesmith.

Stay tuned to Witchblades.com as more pictures are put up.

Thanks for sharing, Rik. Some very cool designs. Is that bronze handle a lost wax casting? I like them all. Keep up the good work!
If your talking about the Medieval Hiker, I carved it out of solid piece of bronze. If you were talking about the Bug its just a piece of flat brass that I folded over.
