Most men aren’t going full Crocodile Dundee, strutting around town brandishing a 16” bowie knife and screaming “That’s not a knife! This is a knife!” at anything remotely pointy-looking. That social production of masculinity is a bit much even by our standards--unless you’re Australian, in which case...good onya, mate!
There’s a case to be made for subtlety, and routinely carrying a folding knife is the perfect balance of convenience, preparation, and discretion. And the only thing more reassuring than having a trusty folding knife clipped to the hip is knowing exactly how that knife came to be.
Assembling the skeleton of a folding knife is just like putting together IKEA furniture, except it’s extremely tiny, won’t break after two months, and will draw blood if done recklessly. This knife is constructed from many tiny parts, the majority of which are too small to be choking hazards, so swallow away.
This AUS 8 Drop Point Blade is made of heat-treated and sub-zero quenched stainless steel and boasts an incredible temper and hardness of 57-58 HRC. The knife’s thumb studs and liner lock make it easy to open and difficult to accidentally cut fingers off.
For exceptional presentation and durability, we’ve selected Linen Micarta handle scales made from layers of hardened resin linen. Think fashion-forward, fossilized mummy wrap meets intricate wood grain pattern, then pick your jaw up from off the ground.
We’ve also included a portable bench vise, file and rasp set, sandpaper, and Torx wrenches for assembling and shaping the knife handles to its perfect, palm-fitting specifications, as well as an instruction booklet to make sure the knife gets assembled pointy end out.
The Folding Knife Project Kit gives the equipment, expertise, and unforgettable experience of assembling and shaping a trusty and true folding knife.
In an awesome cardboard box (NOT A CRATE). Corrugated C Flute cardboard with regular slotted style...told you it was awesome!

I thought he'd like this... but he loved it. He says it is one of the best presents he has ever gotten. He loves pocket knives, and is handy, but also loves customizing and personlizing things. He was able to make a personal knife that fits his hand perfectly, and he hasn't stopped telling me how great it is, how happy he is.
I wish I could buy a gift like this for him every time.
Worth every penny, super high-quality material, took him about 18 hours to finish. I bought it for him 3 days ago, haha.
