With one of these kits, a few tools and a modest investment in time, you can create a custom-made knife to last a lifetime. You can carve the handle to suit your grip, and even personalize it with incised or burned designs. We offer kits in two styles, each made in Japan with a carbon-steel blade that comes honed, ready for use. Each also includes unfinished beech handle scales that are CNC-machined to a well-defined outline that you can sculpt to the final shape.
The full-tang carving knife has a 1 3/4" fixed blade. The folding knife has a 3 3/4" blade with a thumb rest that prevents accidental closure and provides a bearing surface for heavy cuts. Each kit includes Chicago bolts (brass for the carving knife; stainless steel for the folding knife) to affix the handle scales.
In case of mishaps when shaping or mounting the handle, we offer replacement scales separately for each kit.
Supplied with step-by-step instructions, these kits make outstanding gifts, engaging projects and superb knives.
