Story

The Sharp Side Of Subtlety

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.

Cold As Steel

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.

Tough As Linen

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.

    Christmas gift

    My boyfriend is someone who loves new projects and challenges. He loved the kit and could not wait to start working on it. The kits a bit pricey, but his excitement, and experience making the knife along with the finished product of nice quality knife is well worth the price. Would recommend this kit for any person who loves hands on projects.

    Cool birthday gift!

    My wife bought this knife kit for my birthday. I'm always making stuff (woodturning, pens, jewelry, etc), so she knew I would like a project.
    It turned out very nice. Of course, being a woodworker I had to make my own custom scales from purple heart wood.
    I would suggest you include a couple extra screws in each kit, just in case any are lost. They are quite small. I didn't have that issue, but I can imagine it being a heartbreaking experience!
    Overall, this is a great idea for men who are hard to buy for.

    This gift was very well received

    Wow, sent this to dad for Father's Day, and he absolutely loved it, even more than I expected . Yes it's pricey for one knife, but it also includes the tools, and sometimes you're paying for the experience as much as the tangible items... My dad enjoyed it so much--and for everything he has done for me and my family, the cost of this gift was well worth it. It was the least I could do.
