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.

    Thanks, Man Crates!

    Amazing kit… I bought this as a birthday gift for my dad, and upon opening he said (and I quote) “it’s the best present anyone’s ever got me!” He assembled it in no time and now it’s his new favorite go to knife. Thanks Man Crates, from another happy customer!

    folding knife making kit was a HIT

    Gave this to our 78 year old father and he absolutely loves it. It's the perfect gift for that gentleman who wants to tinker with things and create a finished product. It took him half an hour just to get past the duck tape! Perfect gift for this guy. Thank you!

    The most excited ever

    I bought this for my dad for his 70th birthday. I live in a different state and didn't get to see him open it, but my mom said it is the most excited she has ever seen him when opening a gift. When I spoke to him, he was very grateful that the kit comes with everything you need (table vice, sand paper etc.)
