The Knife Life

We don't know much about the guy who wrote, "the pen is mightier than the sword," except that he probably wasn't using swords right.

Ask any honest farmhand, Japanese chef, or the two most dangerous ninja turtles, and they'll tell you a sharp blade is the most virtuous and versatile tool a man can wield. A trusty, fixed blade won't bend, break, or stray from its owner's side; when the going gets tough, the tough get cut.

But unlike men and Socialist paychecks, not all knives are created equal. We've found that the knives guys trust most are the ones they make themselves. The Knife-Making Projects Kit gives every guy the opportunity to design, craft, and perfect his new best friend.

Shanks For The Memories

The Knife-Making Kit is fronted by a 440c stainless-steel Shawnee Skinner blade crafted in Japan, home of the samurai. This hollow ground blade features a thumb notch for easy maneuverability and invincible durability to outlast its maker.

We've blurred the line between trendy, polished tools and dangerously sharp fashion accessories by including Burl Maple handle scales, classy brass bolsters, ornately-designed mosaic pins, and a top-grain, vegetable-tanned leather sheath. The knife will develop a unique character through hours of shaping and staining.

Handle With Care

A dependable knife should instill fear and misgivings into its foes, not its handler, so we've included all the tools needed to rid it of stray splinters and exposed wood.

Like the chisels of Michelangelo, a gamut of rasps and files, graded sandpapers, and a portable bench vise will give birth to a perfectly palm-fitted handle. And for final touches, a wood finish to pull out the unique grains of the Burl Maple handle.

The Knife Making Kit is everything needed for hours of crafting in the garage, and a lifetime of handling out in the world.

    I won the best gift prize!

    Bought this knife making kit for my project-minded 18 year old nephew. Score! Great gift! Like others have said though - the crate concept is what Man Crates is all about - wish this would have come in a cool crate.

    Husband LOVES IT!

    My husband loved this gift! He is super excited to get started and is even happier to add quality tools to his set. Loved the packaging too! I understand they can’t put it in the crate for passing through security purposes.

    Kit is Great but 2 suggestions

    I bought this knife making kit for my husband for Christmas. He loves it but 2 suggestions (why I did 4 out of 5. The actual kit is 5 out of 5) - first don't waste your money on the duct tape bc they ship it that way & the flimsy cardboard box got wet when delivered so I had to transfer kit into another box. And 1 layer of duct tape just isn't worth $10. I could have bought 3 or 4 rolls of duct tape & coated the box in layers myself for that cost. 2nd please start doing all of these in the crates versus flimsy cardboard. One of the most fun things about man crates is getting the crate & opening it. As stated the kit is totally 5 stars only picked 4 bc of the 2 suggestions I made. I will be back for more gifts!!!

    Nice kit but no crate

    I live what comes in the kit and I think my dad with love it but for the price and the fun it came in a crate. I was expecting it to come in a crate when I bought it but after receiving it it was just in a box. It’s misleading to me to have a product ona site that sells gift sets in crates and not have them all in a crate. Maybe have a more clear picture or label at the top saying non crate gifts
