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.

    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.)

    Perfect!

    Man Crates has so many awesome gifts -- many I would love to give to so many manly relatives and friends. Finally I gave the Folding Knife Making Kit to my brother for Christmas. Since it did not come in a crate I opted for the duct tape gift wrap. :D

    This was the best gift ever! My brother is so delighted with the vise, etc.

    Thank you for this! Well Done.

    Man crate with no crate

    I just assumed all man crates come...in a crate. Read the whole description or you’ll pay $150 for a man-cardboard box.

    Man Crates Response: Hey there,

    Thanks for your feedback, we're sorry to hear you were disappointed in your order! While we love sealing up great gifts inside wooden crates, we understand that not every recipient appreciates the sweat and struggle that can go into liberating them. That’s why we’ve added a variety of items to our spread that ship out in other ways. Your gift could arrive in one of a few forms depending which item(s) you order, and if you’d like that gift wrapped in our Diabolical Duct Tape Cocoon.

    If you’re in the market for our namesake crates, keep an eye out for anything on our site that has “Crate” in the title. We’ve included a photo on each Product Description Page as well as just inside your Shopping Cart, letting you know this item is a crated one, and that it comes with one of our Man Crates crowbars.

    We do our best to let you know how the item is shipping by showing a photo on the product’s page and in your cart of how the item ships. We also let you know how the item is packaged in the product description itself.

    That being said, we're happy to work with you to make this right by offering a discount or to arrange a cost free and hassle free return pick-up at the location of your choice if you just want a full refund. Give us a call at 866-902-7260 and we'll do our best to make you happy, thanks!
